Installation and Getting Started

The STLinux distribution and development tools are distributed as RPM files and must be installed on a host PC running a Linux distribution. There are many Linux distributions freely available on the Internet. Although the STLinux RPM packages can be installed on any Linux distribution, only the following 32-bit Linux Distributions are supported:

  • RedHat Enterprise version 4 and above
  • Fedora 6 and above

Note: On the host PC running Linux, make sure that no firewalls are running and that SELinux is disabled.

This section covers:

  • the installation of the STLinux Distribution itself
  • the steps needed to boot STLinux on an ST target

When these steps have been completed, you will have a fully functioning STLinux system.
