Opersys releases "Building Embedded Linux Systems Straight From Source" Quick Reference Guide

MONTREAL, Canada -- February 23, 2004 -- True to its tradition of providing its clients with essential expertise for embedded Linux systems developers, Opersys has released a quick reference guide providing the key commands for building embedded Linux systems straight from source.

Opersys' quick reference guide was put together by Karim Yaghmour, Opersys CEO and author of O'Reilly's seminal "Building Embedded Linux Systems", and includes instructions on how to:

Yaghmour said: "While there are quite a few vendors selling very restrictive and expensive distributions to embedded developers seeking to use Linux in their embedded systems, the fact of the matter is that all the components required to build an embedded Linux system are freely available on the Internet. What is needed is an understanding of how to package the various components together to create a customized embedded Linux system. For the past five years Opersys has successfully helped its clients do just that: build embedded Linux systems straight from source without having to purchase any 3rd party packages, pay any per-unit royalties, or being locked-in to any vendors' offerings."

Opersys' quick reference guide is available here (http://wwww.opersys.com/quickref.html). The quick reference guide can be downloaded and used for personal use. For bulk distribution contact Opersys.
