Porting Linux to LEAF

Did I ever tell you how hard it is to port Linux applications to embedded systems?

Well, apparently to port your application to LEAF (running on WRAP with x86 and all), you still need to repackage all our libraries, binaries, etc into a LRP format (a highly compressed .tar.gz file).

So far, so good, but what happens when you have a ton of libraries to port to the WRAP? Like libxml, swish-e ... tinyHTTP?

And also, the documentation for making LRP packages is not that good, so you mostly have to find your way through it...

More on this to come.
