Hello all, DENX Software Engineering is proud to announce Xenomai/SOLO, the new RTOS emulator that runs as a normal user-space application on a standard Linux kernel. Of course, when timing requirements have to be met, a real-time capable Linux kernel with the PREEMPT_RT support enabled should be used.
Philippe Gerum, the author of the code, writes: Some weeks ago, I started laying the groundwork for porting the Xenomai emulators natively over the PREEMPT_RT kernel. Unlike the co-kernel based Xenomai version, SOLO does not require any kernel support from additional modules or patches. It is fully based on the standard POSIX library, and runs as a regular process controlled by a single image Linux kernel. As a first step, a VxWorks emulator has just been rebuilt over this new framework. This framework is not another window-dressing of the existing Xenomai 2.x core, but really something 100% redesigned and rewritten for running on a native real-time Linux implementation, while keeping the opportunity to adapt it back to a co-kernel system. At some point, I'd like to make both the native and co-kernel Xenomai incarnations converge on the basis of this new core interface for Xenomai 3, so that we would be able to share the APIs between them. In short, SOLO is a necessary intermediate step on the road to Xenomai 3. This work has been co-sponsored by the OSADL (http://www.osadl.org) and DENX Software Engineering (http://www.denx.de).
