Minimalistic or kernel plus a few packages would be ok.
Has anyone even attempted to put some subset of embedded
gentoo onto a coldfire?
I would suggest trying crossdev with the target:
If it's supported directly in the linux kernel, then you might be able
to just use
but I'm not sure if that will work.
Use uclibc for sure (no mmu). uClibc also has a dynamic / shared object
loader as well, which was developed in recent years, so even on mmu-less
systems you can still use functions analogous to dlopen(), dlsym() (AFAIK).
Of course, whether or not the patchsets are incorporated is another
story, but since Coldfire is a pretty well ironed-out architecture, I'm
sure you won't have any issues.
Using portage as a build tool for mmu-less systems is a great idea in my
opinion. I would suggest using Ned's crossdev-wrappers as well (search
Yea, I still researching my options.
Also, the are continuing to beef up the
performance of the high end chips, in the coldfire
When I figure out what I'm going to do, I'll drop
a note on the list, to let anyone comment on the
