Hi all,

I have a single board computer operating on linux. I want to disable all/some interrupts. How can I do this?

Why do you want to ? Is it causing problems ? Can you elaborate ?

You cannot really disable all interrupts and expect the machine to work normally. I don't think it is even possible.

I am using my single board computer in a similar way as one will use a microcontroller. I log in and then run a c code, thats all. The problem is that my c code does not have a fixed execution time. Since my code doesnt use interrupts, I wanted to try to disable interrupts to eliminate this variation in time.
