Talk:Get started with ubuntu on omap4
Does this page not apply to the Pandaboard?
Are there pre-requisites for cross-compiling? For example, when I follow the make commands I get errors. Does one have to have a cross compiler present?
Since it is OMAP4, these instructions do apply for Pandaboard.
Cross-compiling is necessary if the system (desktop) on which you are compiling the sources isn't ARM based. As the pages mention, the compilers can be downloaded from sourcery.com.
