Re: [microblaze-uclinux] ML300 board?
I do work for a Univesity and I've got a colleague who might be
interested in the MicroC/OS-II stuff but, personally, I'm firmly
in the Linux camp.
My next experiment with the board is to take a pre-build MVL kernel,
a pre-build base system, and create ace file for the the compact
flash on the ml310. Assuming I can follow the instructions (and
that the instructions are correct), I should be able to take John's
kernel and do the same.
So I'm willing to take a whack at it... John do you still have those
