This document describes the first steps in setting up the PanelA5/PortuxA5. After completing this guide, you will be able to:

  • Power up the device

  • Get access to the debug UART

  • Configure basic settings

  • Set up the cross-compiler toolchain

  • Compiled the Linux kernel

This guide assumes, that you have PanelA5-, PortuxA5- or StampA5-Starterkit and a computer with Debian Wheezy installed. Other distributions might also work, especially Debian based ones like Ubuntu, but there were not tested during the writing of this guide. A general familiarity with Linux is helpful.
