- MontaVista Linux Preview Kit - sign up and download (Linux 2.4)
- TI's OMAP Linux website has goodies including:
- 2.6.8-rc3_080804.tar.bz2 - a relatively old snapshot of the 2.6 OMAP kernel (warning: ~150MB download)
- u-boot binaries and source - note that old versions use the Innovator-1510 board id, but U-Boot 1.1.2 should is used with 2.6
- omap5912osk_2.6.pdf - How to Build Linux for the OMAP5912 Processor
- For current code (2.6.13-rc1-omap1 at this edit) install GIT and run the following command:
git clone git://source.mvista.com/git/linux-omap-2.6.git
- (This might take a while, the tree is big)
- or just get OMAP-Linux patches less current than the linux-omap GIT tree, against various older http://kernel.org kernels
- you might be able to use kernel.org kernels directly, but some important drivers haven't yet made it upstream
- Use buildroot to quickly make a toolchain and rootfs
- http://oskfordummies.hp.infoseek.co.jp/ - helpful OSK info

#OLon irc.freenode.net is an omap-linux dedicated IRC channel, and has some OSK developers. See http://irchelp.org/ for information on IRC.

HOWTOs and FAQs
This section tries to summarize various HOWTOs and FAQs existing for OMAP Linux and/or OSK.
- General OMAP Linux readme, also available in each kernel tree in Documentation/arm/OMAP/README
- OMAP GPIO usage HOWTO, also available in each kernel tree in Documentation/arm/OMAP/gpio
- Collection of OSK HOWTOs
- UBoot for OSK

- Readme GIT for OMAP
- Submitting OMAP patches
- Linux OMAP Open Source Mailing List, the searchable archive is available at http://marc.info/?l=linux-omap.
- LCD output from decompressor: If you care about the first impression your kernel makes :-) , or your device has no serial ports, you might want to have the decompressor output its messages through LCD, like on a VGA.
- Flash u-boot using USB OTG on H3 (sorry, not OSK, but H3 related ;) )
- Suspend To Disk For ARM
- Execute kernel in place (XIP) from flash Kernel XIP
- Flash Recovery Utility (FRU) available above is uses an undocumented usb interface and is only for windows
- Zach Welch wants the protocol specs so a scriptable version can be created for Linux
- GPL'd OMAP Flash Loader listed above duplicates the protocol, but does not document it.
- u-boot sources with correct arch number (515 as listed on http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/developer/machines/) should be available from http://u-boot.sourceforge.net; or use u-boot 1.1.1 with Media:u-boot-1.1.1-osk.diff
- OE should build complete flash image
- uClibc rootfs should be available
- find/post patch info for 2.4 (2.6 is listed above)
- Tim Riker thinks it would be nice to have a uclibc/tuxscreen style buildroot too. ;))
