Linux distribution choice for i.MX6 based product

Hi everyone,

 

I'm working on a product which is based on the i.MX6 chip, and I'm trying to decide which Linux distribution to use.

 

It seems like the easiest thing to do would be to download the Wandboard Ubuntu image, and modify it to work on my custom hardware. From there, I could simply compile my application on the board.

 

I've thought about using Yocto, but I don't see the advantage to compiling the whole system myself when I can simply use Ubuntu and get any supporting packages I need via the package manager.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

 

Thanks!

 

Marlon
