    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    And your question is... what?

    RT Linux Installation

    Hi,

    I wanted to install RT Linux (patching to Linux Kernel) on my Fedora or Ubuntu.
    Pls guide me regarding this installation. Which version of linux kernel is suitable for which version of RT Linux kernel and procedure to install the same.


    Actually i tried installing RT Linux free version from windriver but failed. My present ubuntu is2.6.31 and i want to configure rtlinux-3.2-wr (rt linux patch) against linux-2.4.2 kernel. I followed the step which are ther in INSTALLATION doc.
    $ sudo patch -p1 > ../kernel_patch-2.4.24-rtl3.2-pre3

    Above one is asking for "File for patching".

    Thanks

    I can understand why the patch didn't work for you. You CANNOT install a 2.4 kernel patch on a 2.6 kernel. That's a good way to hose your system if it succeeds in installing at all.

    RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux have a realtime kernel available called MRG (Messaging Realtime Grid). I would think that Fedora has it also, but I don't know for sure about that. In any case, it provides realtime extensions for deterministic performance characteristics for applications that need it.

    I dont know about MSG. but it is required for me to experiment on RT LInux Free version.

    Thanks Lot
