2009-02-14 11:41:51     ADDS-BF533-EZPromo

I bought this board a long time ago for evaluation on another project that ended up not using the BF. However, I am interested in using this board with ucLinux. Does anyone know if it is possible on this board and what the limitation are?


Also, I looked at the documentation for ucLinux and it states that installing the distribution is outside the scope of the documentation. Ideas on how do get ucLinux onto this platform? I use Ubuntu on my desktop, but I would say I am still just an advanced beginner, so I apprecite any help.

it means "installing Linux on your desktop is outside the scope of the documentation".  we dont have any of these ezpromo boards and have never tested them, so i imagine u-boot itself will need to be ported before you can even try getting Linux running on it.

I think (Garrett - correct me) - the EZPromo was just a ADDS-BF533-EZLITE at a special price ($99) in 2004.


Linux and U-Boot should be able to run fine on that without issue. (although without a ethernet card, it will take awhile to load things over serial).
