Gumstix Linux

The gumstix hardware platform is supported by customized GNU/Linux distribution based on the Buildroot system - ``a set of Makefiles and patches that makes it easy to generate a cross-compilation toolchain and root filesystem for a target Linux system using the uClibc C library'' - and the U-Boot boot-loader.

To develop the application for the gumstix platform a Linux-based(Fedora) host system with a fully-featured GNU software development environment properly set up (autoconf, make, gcc, etc), was used.
