At long last, I set up full featured Linux image on my Galileo.
Until now, I’ve just used my Galileo as a python web server without function of Arduino pin control on my customized Linux image. But finally I enabled Arduino pin control function through GPIO. So I can handle the pin control and full featured Linux with cool command, apt-get!
It’s easy, but it would take some time. Here are the instruction links I’ve followed.
Especially, the third step took over 10 hours! My laptop was obsolete though.
Anyhow, this instructions are well documented, so there won’t be many troubles during the process.
But for who wants time saving, I share the prebuilt images here.
The first one is the Debian Linux image, enabled Arduino pin control.
Just extract the 7z file on your SD card root. And the password of ‘root’ account is ‘1234’. You may need to change it.
The second image is for who want to build it by themselves except the third step. (like I said, it took 10 hours for me).
It’s a Yocto Linux image I built. Check the second step for details.
Enjoy your Arduino life!
