Packages are available for the following distributions:

  • Fedora 15
  • Fedora 16
  • openSUSE 11.4
  • openSUSE 12.1

You can found them on openSUSE Build Service

Fedora

First, we'll need to add the repository and then install linaro-image-tools:

$ cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
$ sudo wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/fboudra:/Linaro/Fedora_16/home:fboudra:Linaro.repo
$ sudo yum install linaro-image-tools

openSUSE

First, we'll need to add the repository and then install linaro-image-tools:

$ sudo zypper addrepo -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/fboudra:/Linaro/openSUSE_12.1/home:fboudra:Linaro.repo
$ sudo zypper install linaro-image-tools

Register binfmt

Once you've downloaded and installed linaro-image-tools, we have to register a new binfmt_misc executable to make it usable:

echo ":qemu-arm:M::\x7fELF\x01\x01\x01\x00\x00\x00\
\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x28\x00:\xff\
\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\x00\xff\xff\xff\xff\
\xff\xff\xff\xff\xfe\xff\xff\xff\
:/usr/bin/qemu-arm-static:" > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register

Now we're ready to give linaro-media-create a try, but first you should download a Linaro Evaluation Build. Once you've downloaded it we can build a Linaro image:

# This is an example of how you'd use l-m-c to generate and install a Linaro image for a beagle board on /dev/sdd
$ sudo linaro-media-create --mmc /dev/sdd --binary linaro-TARBALL.tar.gz --hwpack hwpack_linaro.tar.gz --dev beagle
