some tools for burning image to SAM9261 board on Linux host

following the link above, mkimage bin file is needed for converting kernel image to uImage format

mkimage (U-Boot)

The mkimage U-Boot tool is used to convert a standard kernel image into uImage format needed by bootm U-Boot command.

in order to build u-boot, make3.80 may need.


Some newer version of make produce errors while compiling the revision we use for U-Boot. The compiling of this code has been validated with make-3.80 : Take it and compile it on your host machine (pace in /usr/local directory for example). You can use it calling the right binary while issuing the cross-compile command:


in my case, i just download the SAM-BA tool for linux , mkimage for uboot, make3.80 and CodeSourcery GNU cross-toolchain for ARM.
