Embedded Gentoo brings the flexibility of Gentoo to embedded systems. The project is responsible for overseeing the build infrastructure for creating images to be installed onto embedded systems. Also included is the support of specific types of embedded systems and development tools.
The intention of the project is to make Gentoo viable for embedded systems. This includes creating a system for cross compiling and building the image for an embedded system on a Gentoo workstation. The base install image should be minimal, with different libc options. Building on this base, the system can be customized for the particular system.
The Embedded project has the following subprojects:
|Build||System tools for building and loading the system. Includes cross compiling and libc (glibc/uClibc).|
|Tools||Tools for embedded system development (dev-embedded).|
|Single Boards||Support for single board systems.|
|Handhelds||Support for handheld devices, such as PDAs like iPAQ and Zaurus.|
The Embedded project has the following subprojects planned:
|Misc Devices||Support for miscellaneous embedded systems.|
|Security||Implementation of security measures.|
|Real Time||Enhancements for real time operation.|
