Hi Jan, I liked your idea. I'm finhishing a first version (very limited while conforming to V4L2) framegrabber driver using RTDM and could write about it, but since I cannot show the Data Translation specific code, I could not publish the driver source code in any site. But I can still write an idea about the driver if it is from interest. But I think, reading the articles on LinuxDevices, that the space is very limited and, from the moment, I think it is more appropriate to speak more generally about Xenomai. Cite RTDM as an advantage and you can even say that there are some real-time drivers built into it, like serial, framegrabber, etc.
Well, if you think I can contribute somehow, feel free to contact me. Rodrigo. ____________________________________________________________ Em Terça 14 Março 2006 07:28, Jan Kiszka escreveu: >Hi, > >now that 2.1 is out and very likely also very stable, I feel like having >to bring this topic up again: There should be more announcements of this >project outside its own circle. > >When reading articles about proprietary real-time Linux variants now >almost once a week on LinuxDevices, I always think that there should be >at least once some statement about this powerful alternative.
