Topic: Programing/Loading Linux Drivers
I'm considering buying the Chumby Hacker board from sparkfun for my project. Before I do that though I want to make sure that I can do what I want to with the board. I am looking for a suitable uClinux development board (which it looks like what is loaded on this board) that I can load a Linux UVC webcam driver onto that board and receive video input through a USB port. It seems that two things are done already: uClinux loaded onto storage and USB host programmed. I just want to make sure I have the freedom with the programming on the board to load the drivers and setup the microcontroller to output the data any way I want. So here are my main questions:
1. How do add Linux code? Through changing what's stored on the SDcard?
2. Are all of the output types (I2C, Serial, SPI, etc.) programmed through Linux or in the microcontroller board code?
3. Does there seem to be any large flaws in what I have just discussed?
I am just getting started with uClinux but I am experienced with microcontroller programming. I would appreciate any and all feedback and help.
Thanks for your time,
