Embedded Linux Development Kit

The Embedded Linux Development Kit (ELDK) includes the GNU cross development tools, such as the compilers, binutils, gdb, etc., and a number of pre-built target tools and libraries necessary to provide some functionality on the target system.

The ELDK is provided for free with full source code; it is available for PowerPC, ARM and MIPS targets, and for PC/Linux and SPARC/Solaris host environments.

DENX Guide to U-Boot and Embedded Linux

The DULG Documentation describes how to use the U-Boot firmware and the Linux operating system in Embedded PowerPC Systems.

Specific versions of this document are available for the several boards; please select the board you are interested in here.

Software Development using git, cogito etc.

The Linux community has developed git, a "directory content manager", and several interface layers for it which are now used as software configuration management (SCM) tools for the development of the Linux kernel. See http://git.or.cz/ for details. These tools are also used for the U-Boot boot loader. Here you can find a collection of information about these tools and their use.
