i've never done this myself but it might be easier to use a 'cross compiler' to develop and do the compiling of the application you are writing on a different system, then install the binary on your embedded system, just a thought, gcc i believe can be used as such.

Hi -

Q: please guide me how to learn embedded Linux.
Suggestion - consider buying either (or both) of these books:

1. Embedded Linux Primer, Christopher Hallinan

2. Building Embedded Linux Systems, Karim Yaghmour, et al

Depending on your project's needs, I would strongly urge you to consider Linux for your development platform. Two benefits:

1. Better access to better cross-compilers (IMHO)

2. As you familiarize yourself with Linux as a development environment, you'll
also be familiarizing yourself with Linux as your embedded target environment.

Two birds with one stone
