Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Part One of the series walked new Linux developers through the
construction of a simple embedded Linux system.
"Part Two explained how to construct a simple web server with a
command shell on the console. Part Three brings techniques learned
about using a command shell on the serial console to the
development of a web browser for a kiosk system.
"Major steps involved in the tutorial include: Working with
source files -- Moving from binary-only development to working from
source -- and all the complexity of dealing with additional kernel
"Choosing a web browser -- Selecting a small-footprint browser
(Neturf) that outputs directly to the Linux framebuffer, reducing
development complexity and eliminating the need for a large toolkit
and graphics library"
