iMX27: Embedded Linux size to Run QT

Discussion created by Biplab Kundu on Nov 24, 2017

Hello All,


Sorry if asking wrong question in wrong place !


We are planning for migrating to Embedded Linux with QT for GUI display. We are using iMX27.

The current flash size is only 64MB.


What could be the minimum Embedded Linux image size to incorporate QT GUI (considering very basic services) ?

Is 64MB sufficient ?

Is it preferable to use any ready-made Linux or shall we go for Linux from scratch using anu build system like Yocto/BuildRoot ?


Thanks for sharing your experience on this ! 


Best Regards,
