Hi

 

I am having trouble with the spam filter so I will split this question into several replies on the same thread to figure out why the spam filter hates me ;-)

 

I am getting started with an embedded Linux project using Yocto and the i.MX28 evk. So far things have gone pretty well but I have run into a hurdle when trying to get Linux to boot from the NAND flash instead of the SD card.

 

Before I go more into the questions I will just summarize quickly of what I have done to get a general idea of where I stand.

 

For starters I followed Yocto Training - HOME to get started with the Yocto concept. I took the generated image, dd it to an SD card and then started Linux on the eval board without any problems. I also played around by adding an ftp-server, sshd and apache just to learn a bit more how to add packages.
