I have successfully build my own bsp for imx53. Now, I want to develop application for it. However, it's not convenient at all.
Basically, I have installed vim in my build. But there is no color highlight and lots of features are missed. Furthermore, I don't know how to install GCC into my build (I mean the SD card).
And the serial console doesn't support file transfer, so that I'm editing my source code on my Linux box and then copy it onto the SD card. It's just so uncomfortable...
I guess there must be better way to do this. Can anyone share your experience with me?? Thank you in advance...
Instead of SD Card, mount your root file system over a network using NFS server.
Build your application on your linux box and simply put your executable/binary in network mounted root file system.
No need to reboot IMx53.
