The purpose of this Getting Started Guide (GSG) is to walk you through setting up a development system for the DM365. You should proceed through this guide in the order given for best results. By the end of this Getting Started Guide you will have the DM365 DVEVM hardware setup, a Linux host development environment configured, and a Linux target booting to run some provided demonstration software. You should also bookmark the DM365 category since new articles will continue to appear
