Need to create simple and optimized Linux systems for your embedded devices? Tired of complicated tools? You should try Buildroot!

In this tutorial, we will first introduce Buildroot, a popular embedded Linux build system, that allows you to build your own cross-compilation toolchain, Linux kernel and bootloader images, as well as root filesystem with your selection of user-space libraries and applications, all from an easy-to-use “menuconfig” interface.


Thomas Petazzoni is CTO and embedded Linux developer at Free Electrons. He is a co-maintainer of the Buildroot project and also a contributor to the Linux kernel, helping adding support for Marvell ARM processors.
