Great example of what can be done with +Buildroot!
 
Playing SuperTuxKart on my Minnowboard Turot.

Because there's nothing like playing your favorite game, on your completely-built-from-sources platform. Well, there's usual amount of firmware here and there, but other than that it's FOSS from the bottom up.

Everything built with stock Buildroot. Easy as pie.

Since yesterday, Buildroot has switched to using uClibc-ng (http://www.uclibc-ng.org) as its only supported version of uClibc.

The original uClibc project (http://www.uclibc.org) has not delivered any stable release since May 2012, which required Buildroot to carry dozens of patches to fix things and add features that are needed for many modern userspace packages.

The uClibc-ng fork, whose first released was made on February 1st 2015, has just celebrated yesterday its first anniversary. Within the course of one year, uClibc-ng has made 13 releases, from 1.0.0 to 1.0.12.

Besides Buildroot, we recommend all projects that rely on uClibc to switch to uClibc-ng. Lots of cleanups have been made, lots of pending patches have been merged, bug reports are answered quickly. It's again a good thing that free software can be forked as a way of keeping a project alive.

Our next Buildroot Developers meeting will take place as usual right after +FOSDEM, in Brussels, on February 1-2. The event is sponsored by +Google who is providing the meeting location and free lunch for the participants.

This meeting is really a great opportunity for Buildroot contributors and developers to meet and work together. See http://elinux.org/Buildroot:DeveloperDaysFOSDEM2016 for all the details.

Story
Tagline
Buildroot is a set of Makefiles and patches that makes it easy to generate a complete embedded Linux system. Buildroot can generate any or all of a cross-compilation toolchain, a root filesystem, a kernel image and a bootloader image. Buildroot is useful mainly for people working with small or embedded systems, using various CPU architectures (x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, etc.) : it automates the building process of your embedded system and eases the cross-compilation process.
