ECE472/572 (UCLX) Assignment 6

Prepare for the lab

Answer these questions while doing this lab – they will help you understand the procedure and better prepare for the tests.

Activity (50pts.)

Customizing and Building ucLinux for RaspberryPi or RaspberryPi 2

This activity was double checked and instruction cleaned up by Mr. Joseph Groe, class of 2016. It was adapted to include RaspberryPi2 by Mr. Madison Straubhaar, class of 2017.

Backup your work and Restore
(but boot at least once or twice from the SD card first!)

Cleanup (only after the semester is over!)

Just remove the buildroot folder. However, you will need this folder and its contents again very soon for the later assignments. If you do not want to remove it but are short on space run make clean instead. This will erase all target files and your customized configuration but it will keep all downloaded files.

Submission

Use tar and then gzip or bz2 to combine all script files required for the lab submission into one file. A "convenience fee" may be charged for use of other kinds of compression.

Drop the tar-gzipped files with the information collected during the exercise as instructed in the corresponding assignment drop box on Sakai.

Drop the SD card with the file system for your embedded Linux in the instructor's office for verification when more homework accumulates as discussed in the lectures.

Thank you.
