Depending on the computer for which we'll install Tiny core with RTAI features,
we need to make either a Mono or a SMP kernel AND RTAI modules built for it. . Here to see all details
Process in short :
1-Install a development environment - Tiny Core and tools, downloaded sources
Dowload sources and patches
2-Patch a vanilla kernel with RTAI patches
-> kernel "RTAI"
then patch it with TCL patches & compile the kernel
-> new kernel (should works in "base mode" with core.gz)
3-Compile : config, make bzImage (= vmlinuz) & make modules
-> new TinyCore "pathed real time" usable in graphic mode
Then place modules in core.gz
-> new initrd named core2.gz
4-Run this new Tiny core and install RTAI tools, config RTAI
make RTAI and install modules and suite.
-> working real time Tinycore with lib RTAI installed
5-Test with test-suite from RTAI
-> ready to programm apps
(6)- some good readings about all that may be usefull ... and save time.
I wrote scripts for most of the steps.
It saves time but these only can deal with the tree depicted here.
