rsc's Diary: ELC-E 2017 - Day 1

Robert Schwebel | | Event

This is my report from the first day of Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELC-E) 2017 in Prague.

USB-SD-Mux: Automated SD-Card Juggler

Chris Fiege | | hardware, testing, labgrid

Once the bootloader on your embedded device is up and running the development of kernel and userland in PTXdist-based BSPs is usually based on booting from network. Thus there is no need for the developer to write the boot media with a new image.

All Systems Go 2017: Updating Embedded Systems

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

At the All Systems Go conference in Berlin, Michael Obrich reported at 2017-10-22 about "Updating Embedded Systems - Putting it all together", based on the experiences of the Pengutronix integration team.

Talk at All Systems Go 2017 Conference

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

Before the ELC-E conference starts in Prague, Berlin hosts the All Systems Go conference, the successor of the systemd conference. In times of increasing IT security incidents with IoT devices, updating such systems in a secure and reliable way becomes more and more important. Michael Olbrich's talk outlines the challenges and possible solutions for a robust update process.

Pengutronix Talks at ELC-E in Prague

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk

The autumn conference highlight is the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELC-E), which takes place in Prague this year. The Pengutronix team will be present with four talks and two demo points / showcases, presenting current open source projects (RAUC, labgrid, etnaviv).

Comprehensive RAUC Documentation Update

Enrico Jörns | | RAUC, Documentation

As in many projects, also in RAUC phases of extensive development did often not leave sufficient time to explain the latest changes, new features or at least some basic concepts in an appropriate manner.

Pengutronix Becomes Yocto Project Participant

Enrico Jörns | | Yocto

Not at least since the Yocto project cannot be thought away from the embedded world, Pengutronix successfully also uses OpenEmbedded next to PTXdist as a distribution build tool in various projects for several years.

Etnaviv now supported in Weston mainline

Lucas Stach | | Etnaviv

If you are following the Linux graphics development it should be no news to you that MESA 17.2 and Weston 3.0 have been released in the last weeks. While those carry the usual improvements and bugfixes for a lot of graphics hardware, they are a pretty important milestone for the Etnaviv project: we finally have fully working Wayland support!

Talk: Long Term Maintenance at Embedded Recpies (Paris)

Robert Schwebel | | Event, Talk, Mainline Linux

While the technical side of building embedded Linux systems is mostly solved, running such systems connected to the internet over a long time has its own challenges. At the Embedded Recipes Conference in Paris, Marc Kleine-Budde will talk about establishing a sustinable workflow for this usecase tomorrow (2017-09-26).
