1. Has any one set up the NFS mount build environment, and can post the instructions. There is no redboot, and i saw somewhere in blogs the uboot did not support tftpboot.
2. With the 'minimal' build on the board i cannot launch startx/gnome or gst (gstreamer). Is the linux-2.6.31-ER1-efikamx.tar.lzma link on the blog today is the one to use for the full ubuntu 9.10 with GUI and gstreamer/VPU, etc.? Or there are more steps to add the gstreamer and GUI?
My system came with no docs or any CD. I do not find anywhere in the genesi site hw or software developer reference manuals for the Efika MX board.
Software developer manuals are on the Freescale website.
To install a desktop simply log in and use the following commands;
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y upgrade
sudo apt-get -y install ubuntu-standard ubuntu-desktop
The kernel will work for everything. We'll be providing graphics drivers in the next week or two, pending some testing.
