I own Leopardboard 368 and conduct some experiments with it in order to make sure that DM368 works for my needs. I'm struggling to set up an SDK which would be easy to use and extend as needed. All I need is decent kernel version, bootloader capable of booting the device from an SD card, working minimum set of userspace (busybox plus dropbear), gstreamer with hardware-accelerated plugin and an ability to recompile the latter. However there are some problems in setting all that up.
One of the problems is that there is a big scatter in the SDK land and it's not really clear where to start. There are available:
So far I was only able to create an image that would boot the device using RR SDK. Still I'm not particularly happy with it. I like openness, modularity and customizability of oe-core, but there still some work needs to be done to make it support leopardboard. There should be a machine definition added, kernel and bootloader recipes, as well as recipes for dmai, codec engine, gstreamer-ti and so on.
Have anyone tried that? Maybe I'm missing something and bsp layer for leopardboard 365/368 is available somewhere? What is your SDK of choice?
I have same feeling. Did you find a free SDK with support of all hw avalaible at DM368? I have found a blog for porting of TI DVSDK so maybe I will try it. tw.myblog.yahoo.com/.../article
I just need to use came port and I am confused :) I dont know how to start
I have the same feeling too - we need an IP cam that can do PSIA (which TI claim theirs does) but TI won't even speak to you unless you're going to sell 100k units a year, and Appro don't answer e-mails and aren't clear on what their various Demo-cams/SDK packages actually do or don't do.
It's like people don't want customers.
