A Tale of Two Build Systems: Buildroot and OpenEmbedded
The embedded Linux ecosystem offers a heathy diversity of build systems tailored to different niches, unlike proprietary OSes that tend to present a build system controlled by the owner as the One True build system. This presentation will focus on two of the embedded Linux build systems that have exhibited the most staying power, Buildroot and OpenEmbedded, being sure to answer some burning questions about them along the way:
- Which build system is the more natural choice for MMU-less micros?
- Which build system is the foundation for many consumer-electronics distributions?
- Which build system has its own theme song??
