I just took his bitbake image dsp-console-image.bb and bitbaked it (after I ran bitbake Last modified Sun, 4 Sep, 2011 at 16:40
This is definitely a must have for any type of development. If you're bitbaking an image, saving it to an SD card and then booting off of that ...

Now that I've got the hardware, I wanted to try build my own kernel and test out the camera. You may ask "why didn't you use a precompiled image?". Well the simple answer is that the precompiled images don't have the packages I need. I followed the instructions to use bitbake and setup my environment from gumstix (found here). Everything was pretty straight forward, was able to get everything up and running.

A Robovero board and 4.3" LCD should be on the way soon.
