I broke the Utilite in my FTH - my fault, details will become apparent.
**Heads up for those not in the know**
I'm not a Linux guy - please be patient with my descriptions/understanding.
Utilite is an ARMEL ARM Cortex A9 micro PC which is the brains on this game.
The game's 4* PIC32 IO boards connect to this via USB. It handles IO/sound/vid/etc. The model is standard. Dual HDMI. No mSata SSD. Boots either internal or from micro SD.
SD for the game I believe.
My Utilite no longer boots and shows perm grn/org led's on lan1. Not a good look. Serial has been connected. It's done.
I think I have a good image from the micro SD card. Win32Image was able to read the Micro SD and when I open the .img with 7 zip I see 0.fat and 1.img.
I can browse the 1.img with 7 zip and it's contents. No sym links of course.
Yocto 3.0.35 is in the boot dir on the SD.
Update pkgs I have applied from USB are in .deb suggesting it is a Deb distro however I can't see any relevant deb version info files in /etc/
I do not have source code to compile for different architechtures.
I'd like to understand platform in more depth but my question/concern for now is can I use different ARM hardware? The Utiiite's are getting a bit long in the tooth now and their support (Compulab), need to take a good long hard look at themselves.
HW have suggested best thing is to replace existing Utilite. OK for now but these things are no longer in prod.
I do not want to be looking for one of these in 5 years.
I have tried to emulate the architecture using QEMU but still learning how it works.
Long story shorty - can I use different ARM hardare to make this game work?
