This is the AllLinuxDevices Digest, a quick look at some news from the world of embedded Linux. Look for the ALD Digest daily on weekdays.

Today's Headlines:

  • An MP3 Server in Linux
    "Configuring Linux to stream MP3 music over a TCP/IP network is a matter of installing and configuring just two RPMs."
  • TiVO is One Jack Short
    "But there is something missing. Something is not quite right. Like Neo's Matrix world, something is...off...and TiVo isn't holding the red pill."
  • Linux gadget push helps Red Hat narrow losses
    "The embedded Linux effort--which began with Red Hat's acquisition of Cygnus Solutions in November and continued with its June acquisition of WireSpeed Communications--will get another a boost in two weeks when Red Hat introduces its version of embedded Linux at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose, Calif., said chief executive Matthew Szulik."
  • Timesys Announces Preemptive Kernel Support In TimeSys Linux/RT "TimeSys Corporation announces enhancements to its TimeSys Linux/RT operating system distribution that make the Linux kernel preemptable. This new feature significantly enhances hard real-time responsiveness by minimizing wait times for higher priority real-time tasks."
  • Real-time Linux -- what is it, why do you want it, how do you do it? "In this article, we'll try to clear away the smoke, and provide some perspective on the subject of real-time Linux."
Selected News From Outside the Linux World:
  • Palm preps pay-per-download PalmOS 3.5
    "Palm will finally release PalmOS 3.5 this autumn, and to add insult to injury as it were - Palm users have been waiting for the update since February - the handheld company is planning to charge for it."
  • Is WAP a Flop?
    "Although millions of WAP-enabled cell phones have been sold (or given away by cellular networks eager for customers), relatively few use the system. The German cellular operator D2, one of the major promoters, reported last month that its average WAP customer uses the service less than a minute a day."
