    Recompiling Linux Image and Configuring WiFi




      I made a few Intel Galileo related posts in my blog that could be interesting to this forum:


      Intel Galileo - Introduction

      Introduction to Galileo. Technical specifications, etc. At the end I also describe how to build a serial cable and use a serial console with Galileo.


      Intel Galileo - Building Linux Image

      I shortly go through steps required to rebuild Linux Image, and then show how to build a Linux Standard Base (LSB) compliant image with software development tools. (So that you can compile your programs directly on Galileo)


      Intel Galileo Meets Wireless

      I describe hardware setup and Linux configuration for wireless networking on Galileo


      Hope this will be helpful. Suggestions are welcome.

          This is great.


          intel_jorge / maryc_intel  - can you get the pre-built image posted on the site as an additional download? I faced errors during bitbake (which takes several hours to run) and having this would make it a lot easier.

            Many thanks to Sergey for his excellent guides to Galileo! A star you most definitely are!


            For anyone embarking on the local build of Yocto, there are a couple of GOTCHA's in the build, seems that an old version of source for ELF is on the GIT repository, this will lead to build errors and requires edits to 2 of the source files replacing "%a" with "%m" in 2 places in the first failing file, and, once in the second failing file. I apologise for not recording the names, but, when it fails you will get all the information you need!


            The other major fail is in the module GUILE, I tried to sort the local source but gave up and downloaded the latest source from repository and it all built in the end.


            It is a long time since I messed about with these things, (1990's), I thought that modern CVS had cracked all of these issues many years ago! Nope! Seems that the GIGO and Linux are still very much alive!

              Do not apply the update to Ubuntu is the solution for my problem! This only works with Ubuntu 12.04.
