Spelling: OpenEmbedded


OpenEmbedded [2] is a tool which allows developers to create a fully
usable Linux base for various embedded systems. It has been designed
to be able to handle different hardware architectures, support
multiple releases for those architectures, and utilize tools for
speeding up the process of recreating the base after changes have been
made. Currently it can run on any Linux distribution, and plans are in
place to allow it to work under Windows.

OpenEmbedded [3] is the successor of the great OpenZaurus [4]
project. Basically OpenEmbedded [5] is a build system that can
generate (cross-compile) Software packages for embedded targets. This
may include Bootloader, Linux and Applications.

Current OpenEmbedded [6]-based projects include:
*OpenSLUG [7] for the Linksys NSLU2 [8] Network-attached storage
*MeshCube [9] - the MIPS/MiniPCI-based wireless router from
4G-Systems (see also MeshCube [10] in this Wiki)
*OpenZaurus [11] for the Sharp Zaurus PDA
*OpenSIMpad [12] for the Seimens SIMPad PDA
*Familiar Linux [13] for the iPaq PDA and others

Hopes are that the OpenWRT [14] project for the Linksys WRT54G will
be based on OpenEmbedded [15] in future.
