CFA embedded linux


New member
I am as new as they come to working with embedded linux. We just received a CFA-10036 as seen here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crystalfontz/cfa-10036-open-hackable-linux-arm-embedded-gpio-mo

I am hoping some of the CFA910 guru's can help me with this.

1st, there is no compiler, so I assume I should compile on another box. So I setup Eclipse on a win7 box with the arm plugin as seen here

Assuming this works, I really have only 1 other major snag and that is the wifi dongle I was provided will not initialize, any suggestions on what to do? I am using the rj-45 temporarly, but I'd love to get the wifi working.
