Embedded Development


I need to do some embedded development for the custom board I am designing. It needs to support Linux. I have chosen Fedora Core 7 for my development workstation. I have done good chunks of C/C++ programming in Windows but I am completely unaware of where to start in Fedora.

Can anybody please guide me where to start with? Should I use KDE or GNOME as a development environment? By the way, I am willing to add some GUI for my custom board which will be based on Trolltech's Qtopia Toolkit.

Can anybody refer me a book or good website having complete details about embedded development in Fedora?

Thanks in advance,
Waqas Danish

Cool This questions has a too many possible answers.


The following book should give you a much better overview and the details to create a linux systems for your custom board. This is a very intense topic: google "embedded linux", buy the book - read it, then try asking a more detailed question.

Building Embedded Linux Systems

FLTK is a very popular embedded toolkit. GTK with a minimum window handler is also fine. GNOME and KDE many times are too large for most custom boards - but if yours has the resources, it would make this project easier to complete; here GNOME would be the recommendation.
