LEB Manual for Developers and Users of Linaro

This is a manual in a continuous draft state, as any good document maintained out of a wiki would be. It is presented as is and may contain errors. The manual does at times contain links to external sources.




Downloading Prebuilt and Release Software

Linaro releases as well as development snapshots are distributed in two parts. First is the rootdisk that is made available in various user space flavors. The second is the hardware pack that should match the hardware that you are going to run on.
