Standard Operating Procedures for Embedded Linux Systems
This article describes the five procedures for making a Linux-based embedded system and describes ten methods for downsizing the kernel and the root filesystem. After we used these methods, our Wall Project was downsized by 26.18%. The experiment's results reveal that the two most efficient methods are giving correct kernel compilation parameters and using simplified tools and libraries in the root filesystem. Hopefully, this article helps you understand the procedures and problems when building a Linux-based embedded system.
