Getting started with Ångström

As described in the Ångström web page:

 Ångström is an effort to make a stable and userfriendly distribution for embedded devices like handhelds, set top boxes and network-attached storage devices and more.

 

A great tool for embedded engineers and the one that will be used through the beagle-ros project. Getting started with it is actually quite straight forward. You just need to have bitbake in your computer and run:

git clone git://github.com/Angstrom-distribution/setup-scripts.git
cd setup-scripts
./oebb.sh config beaglebone
MACHINE=beaglebone ./oebb.sh bitbake systemd-image

After the process is completed you should have under setup-scripts/build/tmp-angstrom_v2012_12-eglibc/deploy/images/beaglebone the files needed that should be put in the microSD (use mkcard.txt for that purpose).
