Fix bootloader section

Reported by: Andrew Bradford Owned by: Andrew Bradford
Priority: major Milestone: CLFS Embedded 1.0.0
Component: BOOK Version: CLFS Embedded GIT
Keywords: Cc:


Every board might be easier to use a different bootloader for, and many probably come with something already setup. There's so many different ways to build just u-boot where each configuration of a board within the many many boards you can build for, that it's just not reasonable to try to instruct someone to build a bootloader for some arbitrary target board.

Would it be reasonable to say, "You are going to need a bootloader, good luck!"?

If we build for a QEMU target, no bootloader is needed. You can hand QEMU a kernel and a root fs and it knows how to boot.
