Thanks Suchakra. That is very helpful.
May I take the liberty of asking the community here 2 more questions --
1. What do people feel about the support ecosystem around specific Linux
distros ? In my quest for a lean-n-mean (fat-free) disto I've had some
amount of frustration with Angstrom pre-built images (from narcissus), for
IGEPv2 (rev.C) boards (OMAP DM3730 1GHz, 512MB/512MB), which doesn't boot
with the pre-built images. Am yet to try building an image, might fare
better. Questions left on Angstrom list, don't seem to fetch many useful
answers ? So wondering if it'd be better to move to another distro where I
might get better community support ?
2. Is someone aware of some good independent consultants or small companies,
good with board level design ? Guys who can do some extension/modification
work on ARM boards/COM's ? I've come accross several who make tall claims,
but after having burnt some hard-cash, are yet to deliver anything working.
I suspect most of the folks to be guys who can deal with the software, or
BSP level at most... at HW level, the skill seems to be really rare.
If aware of someone like that, kindly drop me a mail offlist.
