Including basic linux OS code as a library package into a CCSv5 project for TCI6636 ?

Hi all,

I am a newcomer into embedded linux issues. We are gonna use TCI6614 and Keystone II 6636 devices in our company projects. As you know sys/bios is not supported for A-15 cortex ARM Core in 6636. So we plan to use embedded linux as OS. however we dont need all linux capabilities or functions, so we want to try including basic linux as a library package (as ".lib" file) into a CCSv5 project and use these library functions to create our tasks and schedule task priorities only.

To be clear i want to give an example about my goal. We use an echo cancellation software from a 3rd party company in our TI DSP projects. This is given us as a library package (.lib file). We only do some necessary memory utilizations and call their library functions to cancel the echo. I want to use linux in this manner too.

Is this possible? If yes how can i do that?

Thank you all.

Linux is not a library that is bound to your applications. Technically, is it simply the kernel, which provides services to your applications. Most people think of Linux as a (usually) vast collection of applications, tools, and sundry other files, and perhaps this is your view. If so, you can definitely reduce the Linux footprint to a much smaller size than the traditional size of a Linux desktop distro.
I routinely use a Linux configuration the occupies less than 64 MB of memory at runtime, including a significant embedded application, and uses zero bytes of disk/nonvolatile storage. The configuration was heavily modified from MicroCore Linux which no longer exists. The maintainers of MicroCore now distribute Core Linux, a tiny Linux.
