probably some of you have already heared about the RT-FireWire project. Now, I would like to announce the 0.1 release of the work. You can download the package via
http://home.student.utwente.nl/y.zhang-4/download.htm. (BTW, for the homepage of RT-FireWire, you can just type rtfirewire.berlios.de, which will be automatically redirected)
o Compiles with Xenomai 2.0 and Linux 2.6.12+
o Real-Time packet transmission (asynchronous and isochronous)
o Real-Time Memory management
o Device management via /dev/rt-firewire
o Support RTnet via Real-Time Ethernet emulation over FireWire.
Some other remarks:
o in current implementation, quite a part of the work is adopted from the Linux1394 system, which is designed for general purpose usage.
o for those who are interested in the technical issues, it is recommended to read these 2 papers. http://home.student.utwente.nl/y.zhang-4/doc.htm
As a start-up OS project, we badly need more developing force, so please just drop me a mail if you are interested to join the work, or just curious to know more about the internals. And of course, it is recommended to register to the mailing list.
