Development host tools

Besides what's mentioned in the intro guide:

  • If you're building your own kernel, make sure you build the USB/serial module ftdi_sio for console access.

Outstanding issues

  • The meta-altera layer provides its own file, which seems like simply a subset of the one from OE Core. Why?
  • How does one update U-Boot on the SD card? I suspect it's in that first unmountable partition.
