    I recently downloaded the linux image you have in the downloads section and not much seems to be working with it. I see a setup for HTTP in the files but isn't hosting the index.html page thats in the image. Also there is an ETH0 write error when it boots. What is the image sample suppose to do?

    I am also wondering where I can get the code that you used to get that going and what version of linux was used?

    Hi mjadnerson,

    You are correct, the sample Linux image doesn't do too much since it is meant merely as a demonstration.

    The sample image will display a splash screen to the LCD and load Linux. Like it says in the readme file you can point your browser to the IP address that gets resolved through DHCP and view a sample web page.

    The source code came from and the implementation code for the 5329 processor came from Freescale. You can try contacting Freescale to see if they are making these files available.
