The next step is to make yourself familiar with Fiasco.OC and L4Re. Download the sources, build them for x86 and run the hello example in e.g. qemu. The next step is to cross compile for ARM and also run the result in qemu. Then you can start building for the Pandaboard and try to run the hello example there. Make sure you have uboot on the Pandaboard.

I am required to setup two virtual phones on a mobile phone, I would like to do this first on Pandaboard ES ( I have been searching for the steps to be followed and came across lots of information and found it was difficult to follow. Requesting for your guidance to setup virtual phones on Pandaboard.
