Yes of course. Just select a buildslave (e.g. ppc or hcu3 ->

intentionally left this facility open for everybody to test it. But it would
of course be possible to restrict it only to a few selected developers.
This is a really great idea! Of course, I already have another test
candidate in mind: RTnet 8). Specifically the PPC environment would be
interesting, as our "buildbot" (sorry, Wolfgang G. ;) ) is typically
very busy so that build regressions are sometimes only detected with
delay on that platform. Is it also possible to explicitly trigger an
update and rebuild?
If you want, I can help you to setup the master.cfg for a rtnet buildbot.
I would love to, but you know - time...
I will add one. Could you please e-mail me (privately if you want) a working
config (ppc, no cross compiling if possible). Or do you want to add a build
slave under your control?
But also for Xenomai I would see this as a very useful tool, e.g. for
2.4 build tests (I must confess I only test sporadically against this
Hmm, I would prefer to just use something, especially as my PPC
experiences are quite limited :). But I guess here are qualified people
listening who can quickly dig out some config.
In arch/ppc/configs of the (DENX) 2.4 kernel are plenty of
configurations for the PowerPC boards, e.g. TQM8620_defconfig,
icecube_5200_defconfig, TQM866M_defconfig, etc. But we need cross
compilation for most of the embedded boards. Do you need the
configuration with IPIPE and Xenomai options enabled?
There is a reset button, but then you have it running and consuming
electricity all the times.
Is there no reset button you could control via a master station, e.g. by
attaching some cheap electronic to a parallel or serial port?
I would be willing to setup a buildbot for the u-boot, too, as my board boots
with a very outdated version of u-boot.
I just remember that DENX once had or still have a remote PPC test-lab
running. I CC'ed Wolfgang, maybe he could comment on this if and how it
could be used.
We simply use remote controllable power switches to switch the boards on
