That's right - uCLinux needs much more than 512KB of RAM. However, you
would be all set if you used the Xilinx Spartan3E Starter Kit (only $150!!!).
It has 64MB of DDR SDRAM, which is _way_ more than what uCLinux needs to run.
I have the Spartan3E Starter Kit board, and have been wanting to put Linux
onto it - is it possible to work with uCLinux using the microblaze core
WITHOUT shelling out $$$ for the Xilinx EDK? I also want to work with the
microblaze core in a 100% linux-only development environment. Is this
possible? I have an EDK evaluation copy, but it only works under Windows.
Thanks for any help,
