About mLinux

mLinux is an open source embedded Linux distribution. It’s built using the open source Yocto Project release 1.6.1 (codename daisy) which uses the OpenEmbedded-Core build framework. We provide both the pre-built Linux images that ship on the device as well as the source code and build system for creating your own custom image. We also give you the option of ordering MultiTech hardware pre-flashed with your custom Linux image.
