Thank you for your responses, Wolfgang.
I still have some confusion; I was able to build and run a xenomai 2.2.0
patched linux 2.6.14 kernel on a Apple EMac, which has a 7447A processor
in it - with no changes, and was able to get good latency results in my
I think the older kernels still supported Apple hardware under the "ppc"
arch, but in the more recent kernels it's moved to the "powerpc" arch.
I am currently playing with a 8641D dual core power pc, it is basically
two 7448 processors in one package which is almost identical to the
7447A, along with peripherals (ethernet/serial/pcie). Yet I can't seem
to get xenomai compiled for it, even in non-smp mode.
The 8641D needs a newer kernel than 2.6.14 ( 2.6.19 is okay ).
What should I do?
If you have followed Linux kernel development and understand the new
genirq stuff (and eventually irq threads), or are willing to dig into
it, then why not start a brave porting effort and try to, for example,
first make your eMac work on newer kernels with adeos/xenomai stuff applied.
