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.
