Hi guys,
I hope you can help me on this:
I have to create an small linux distribution for a embedded industrial PC
(PIII - 256 MB - 128MB FlashDisk). This PC will be used for Data Acquisition
and Industrial control applications, the kernel must provide real-time
services. In order to accomplish this, I did the following:
.- I patched the kernel 2.4.21 with rtai-24.1.21-rthal5g
.- I enabled RTAI HAL option using make menuconfig
.- I compiled kernel using (make dep && make bzImage)
The kernel boots fine (Network, VGA, USB, Serial Ports). 
I have some questions:
A.- How to verify the RTAI functionality? How to know if it's working?
B.- Some people use ADEOS and RTAI to bring real-time services. Do I have to
use both? or is RTAI enough?.
Next stage, I have to include more services for my embedded distribution
(Web Server, SSH/Telnet/FTP)
I really appreciate your comments to these questions or any suggestions to
my adventure.
