Raspberry Pi Buildroot update!

RPI-Buildroot

My custom Raspberry Pi distro is now sporting an up-to-date userland along side a 3.6.10 kernel and a few more tweaks (including that colorful /etc/issue you see above).

This distro is based on Buildroot, that means it very flexible and well suited for numerous customized embedded linux applications. Makers will find it extremely useful since it can be used to create powerful custom deployments – Want to control a robot using a Raspberry Pi? then this is the distro for you – Please keep in mind that the default configuration builds a system with nothing more than the bare essentials.

Please checkout the README file for more information.

Marshmallow Entertainment System demo image was also updated, now with (buggy) ALSA support!

Raspberry Pi ALSA leaves a lot to be desired, so don’t expect too much. :)
