In Episode 24, I finished off my new build machine, successfully did a QEMU image build on it, and loaded an off-the-shelf Ubuntu image into my new MinnowBoard Turbot. This week, I tackled a MinnowBoard Linux image build using Yocto, loaded it into my MinnowBoard, and also set about doing a Yocto image build for the Portwell Neptune Alpha board. But I ran into some problems.
In Episode 23, I mentioned taking a short sabbatical, because my MinnowBoard USB ports stopped working, and my 7-year-old home PC build machine crashed. The good news is both of these issues are both fixed! Let the fun begin again.
