Gentoo on PC/104
 
Hello all,

Our platform is a PC/104 (x86) with additional boards (analog and digital
I/O, serial ports, ethernet, etc.)

We are thinking of using gentoo as OS. Do you know what are the
advantages/disadvantages of using this Linux distribution over the others?
(Suse, Ubuntu, Redhat, etc.) any recommendation for an embedded OS?

And if so, what development tools should I use to develop my applications?

Thank you in advance!

Well of course gentoo is very customizable. You should decide if you
want to use uclibc or glibc (Depending on your RAM, Flash/Disk
storrage). Other distros AFIK don't have the option to use uclibc.


Perhaps you should read:

http://gentoo-wiki.com/TinyGentoo
http://gentoo-wiki.com/Embedded_Gentoo


Another option is to roll your own with buildroot, and if you want
"packages" use ipkg.



And if so, what development tools should I use to develop my applications?


Gcc, and make.? :-)

Some people like eclipse.

Thank you in advance!

I like Gentoo a lot.

Especially with an x86 system, catalyst is quite handy to build the
system image.

Nothing can beat C IMO, so gcc and if you want GUI your favorite
toolkit.
