11 gumstix just copies their buildroot env from the original one that was spawned
12 from uclibc:
14 they include their own fixes on top of it i imagine
16 i have commit access to the original buildroot and ive added portage to that
17 back when i was using buildroot to bootstrap Gentoo/embedded ... but since
18 Gentoo can be used to bootstrap Gentoo/embedded, i dont really bother with
19 buildroot anymore
21 considering Gumstix is simply a little endian arm, there's no reason you cant
22 take existing little endian arm stages and use those on the board ... you'd
23 prob still have to get your kernel from them though
