    yocto vs the open-source Yocto Linux* operating system


      I am confused about linux operating system shipped with compute board.what kind of distribution is that?



      The compute board ships with the open-source Yocto Linux* operating system, and offers sample applications and APIs for flight and vision interfaces, reducing hurdles for developers of sophisticated drone applications.


      Important Note: It is necessary to update the BIOS, FPGA, and Flight Controller for this software release. Instructions to update the BIOS, FPGA and Flight Controller are located on the Wiki.



      It's not an embedded Linux distribution – it creates a custom one for you

      The Yocto Project is an open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded products regardless of the hardware architecture
