    Embedded system board

    Hi, Have anyone noticed this or just me may be since i am a beginner for embedded systems. When i copy the exe file from my local machine which is compiled and linked and ready to run on the target machine. I copied the exe file and it worked fine. Forgot to mentioned it has an embedded linux (Kernel 2.6).

    But when i restart the board, the folder which i created and the exe file is no more there. How will i make this thing to stay for ever.

    I went through the manual which came along with the board. No information about it. Is it all board are this way?

    Thank you

    First of all, where does the Linux kernel come from in your system - is it perchance stored in a Flash-ROM? If so, it is possibly downloaded through some special means in a compressed form and then loaded into a RAM file-system, which is what you are updating. There's probably a method for "replacing" your Linux system in the flash, but it requires more than just copying the file across.

    There is a second option, assuming you have a network connection on your board: set up an NFS connection to some other machine, and just use that for your executable file(s).
