configure --enable-linux-build make xconfig make install If you already have a .config file, the "make xconfig" step becomes optional. Note that the --enable-linux-build flag is optional too. The simplification is mainly for developping xenomai itself, not for its users. Because with the current scheme, after some modifications, you have to recompile and reinstall both the kernel-space modules and user-space libraries. If you let configure select the proper adeos patch, you are warned when the adeos patch changed in the source directory (after an svn update, for example), and just have to type: rm linux/.xenomai-prepared (Ok, this step is a bit awkward, we may find something better) make install And a new kernel will be built and installed, using the new adeos patch and the same .config. -- Gilles Chanteperdrix.
