Hi,

I booted my Galileo board with 3.8.7-yocto-standard.

How can I install any browser into my Galileo board? I tried many times but I can't install any browser. In fact, I tried install debian because debian has browser. However, I can't. I read related topics but I can't. Help me! Please :(.

Hi bent,

Is there any reason why you want to install a browser in your Galileo? Are you talking about Chrome, IE and such? There are text-based web browsers, I would suggest you to try installing one of these. I believe these browsers are more suitable to the Linux terminal environment used in Galileo. I haven't tried before, but you can give it a try. http://lynx.browser.org/ Lynx could be an option.

Thanks for reply,

Yes, I need google maps for navigation :/. It is very hard. I'm trying to make navigation with Galileo . It is possible? Actually, I don't know Linux very much. I'm new at this. I thought that install debian because of this. However, I can't install debian .

Hi bent,

I would suggest you to search for alternatives, because we're not aware of any software capable of embedding maps in the Intel Galileo. There might be Linux alternatives that work for the Yocto image. There are some tested GPS shields that you can consider for your project, you can check the http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-035257.htm Shield Testing Report for Intel Galileo Board for some options.
