Barebox Bootloader - Sascha Hauer, Pengutronix e.K.
Booting Linux is still a hot topic on embedded systems. It has been 3years since the last presentation about Barebox at ELC-E, and thebarebox community has grown and developed many new and unique featuresduring that time. The talk gives an update on the status of barebox,including MMU support, compressed images, menu system, automouter,tftp/nfs-filesystem, USB updating techniques and other goodies.
The presentation is for kernel porters who need a robust, flexible,extensible and well structured tool to bring up Linux on embeddedhardware. It is equally suitable for new and experienced barebox users.
Sascha Hauer is working as a kernel developer at Pengutronix. He started programming on a C64 which lacked a floppy to play games. Sascha uses Linux since 1997 and made his first contact to embedded boards by porting the Freescale i.MX SoCs to Linux 2.6. Sascha is the official i.MX kernel maintainer and the maintainer of the Barebox bootloader.
