I'm trying to get started with an overo with a summit board. My end goal is to get SPI working, and most internet resources I've looked at tell me I need to patch the kernel somehow. My problems is, I have no idea what I even need to do and get set up before I can get started. I'm not too familiar with linux, bitbake, openembedded etc. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm happy to just get a list of tutorials and get cracking, but like I said I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to crack :-P
I can boot the gumstix and navigate its file systems, and even compile code. I can't currently connect to the internet (working on it...). I have a Debian box lying around that will probably become my gumstix-to-computer interfacing box, but what to install on it and why I do not know.
