We have a proprietary SBC (Single Board Computer) type of platform that is a large sized scale Raspberry Pi essentially. It is ARM based and uses Linux Kernel v3.# as its base. This isn't an Ubuntu question but I know Ubuntu does have ARM support in some versions so maybe there is shared knowledge.
We use a provided BSP (Board Support Package) to get interfacing to it through UART and can give it very basic Linux commands with the $sh.
It's frustrating as I cannot use most of the known bash commands I am used to. Is there anyway to increase functionality by 'adding' bash to different Linux platforms?
