AllLinuxDevices: Weekly Roundup: August 30, 2000

Aug 30, 2000, 21:52 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Michael Hall)

"Once again, it's been a big week for news at AllLinuxDevices, with a variety of stories from all over the embedded Linux world. From real-time networking to handheld development, we've had something for everyone. Here's a look at the past week."

"Jim Pick provided an overview of the PocketLinux project, explaining where it came from and where it's headed. His article also has some screenshots of the new OS in action on an iPAQ. PocketLinux is available for the VTech Helio and the iPAQ. Though the project is still in the "almost there" stage for day-to-day PDA usage, it's available for installation now."

"David Schleaf and David Beal discussed the importance of the recent release of RTnet, a GPL'd modification of the Linux networking system, and provided some insight into why Lineo makes use of the GPL. Real-time networking might not seem like the most fascinating thing to the casual observer, but it's essential to embedded industrial systems, and Lineo's contribution of this enhancement makes the embedded Linux future that much more bright."
