How do I mount the ISO image on the T4240RDB?

I am having trouble mounting the ISO image on my T4240RDB.

I was able to power on the board and through the UART port connected to my host's COM1, I am at a Linux prompt -

t4240rdb login: root


And now since I am at a Linux prompt that is completely barebones, and doesn't know what is "make" and does not have any GNU toolchain installed, I decided to load the ISO file that came on a thumb drive with the board.


Here are the steps I followed -

root@t4240rdb:/run/media/mmcblk0p1/work# cp /run/media/sda/SW\ image/QorIQ\ Linux\ SDK\ v2.0\ SOURCE.iso .

root@t4240rdb:/run/media/mmcblk0p1/work# mount -o loop /run/media/mmcblk0p1/work/QorIQ\ Linux\ SDK\ v2.0\ SOURCE.iso /mnt/QorIQ-SDK-v2.0
mount: /dev/loop0 is write-protected, mounting read-only

root@t4240rdb:/run/media/mmcblk0p1/work# cd /mnt/QorIQ-SDK-v2.0/
root@t4240rdb:/mnt/QorIQ-SDK-v2.0# ls -lart

The instructions say that I am to open STARTHERE.html, but I dont see that file.

1. How do I go about installing the iso image?

2. Will the QorIQ_Linux_SDK_v2.0_SOURCE.iso, which shipped with the board have a fully functional Linux OS with gcc and make for PPC64 that will allow me to build and compile code on the T4240RDB?
