Ubuntu 9.04 minimal development build for OMAP35xx
This page describes how to get a minimal Ubuntu 9.04 system up, using a SD card on an OMAP35x_EVM ARMv7 board.
Note that this environment is completely aimed at development, it
has only the ubuntu-minimal and build-essential metapackages installed.
Partition the SD card
Partition a SD or SDHC card into two partitions, the first partition
should have about 64M (less would suffice though) and should be vfat
Use the rest of the card for the second partition and format this as ext2.
Put root filesystem and kernel on the card
Mount both partitions of the SD card (if you are on an Ubuntu desktop
system, just replug the card, the partitions should get mounted as
/media/disk and /media/disk-1).
