Part Number: OMAP-L138
We are currently evaluating running Linux on the ARM CPU of the OMAP-L138.
The latest Linux SDK from TI is being used during evaluation.
Right now we are looking at how to update our program on the Linux file system for when we release new versions of our application.
I've investigated making a package to perform the installation.
So far an opkg, DEB or RPM package seem like they might do what we're looking for.
Is there any recommended package installer to use for this situation in the current distribution of Linux that TI provided?
TI PLSDK is only linux kernel, not any value add package. So Debian and RedHat are not supported. I don't think TI filesystem handles DEB or RPMl, but open source one.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

One important thing in misstated.
In my prior post I was assuming that people would use some type of package to install their updated software.
We're wondering in general how people have updated their applications in the Linux distribution TI provides.
It doesn't need to be a package deployment as long as it works and is reliable.
In reply to Rex Chang:
Since my original post I was able to figure out that the Linux distribution did not natively support deb or rpm.
I'm now researching other ways to update the user programs and was curious about techniques other people used to update their applications.
In reply to Benjamin Michaud:
TI delivers Linux kernel to support peripherals on TI devices and don't have info on how customers update their software. opkg is included in the filesystem, you may want to consider that if it meets your goal.
Yes, the opkg seems to be working well so far with updating the application.
Since this is natively supported we'll probably continue to use this package installer.
