why cant start a new RealTime linux forums
 
Hai
I think we must have a new Fourm which deals with the RealTime Linux.This will surely help people who deals with realtime linux

If this is a distro, please hit the search button and search for "why is there no forum for". This comes up a lot.

Basically, if the distro themselves want to have a forum here, could they contact Jeremy. To be honest though, you are the first person I have seen who has said they are using it. How long has it been going? What is it?

Basicaly the idea of realtime linux project is to make linux a good raltime system.Now linux is not hard realtime.So what they do is they insert a new realtime interface to linux kernel.There are two most popular realtime linux

1)RTLinux
2)RTAI

Ok so you still didn't answer XavierP's questions, are you wanting a specific forum here for this distro or you just advertising what it is?

Sorry for being late.What I suggest is that we must have a new forum for realtime linux.I am telling this because now i am doing a project in realtime linux and it is very difficult for me to clear my doubts.I think there may be some other in the same situation.So if we had a specific forum we can help each other

I assume you mean realtime as in:
http://source.mvista.com/linux_2_6_RT.html

I doubt there would be enough traffic for this. It would probably be better asked in the Linux General forum

vijeesh_ep 12-24-2004 02:51 PM

Actually i am not concerned abt any particular distribution.I am telling abt the general concept of the realtime linux

This site has more than 150000 members and 100s are joining every day.Atleast 1000 of them may have interest in this topic.also A forum like this will also help to promote the concept of realtime linux.Today the problem is that there is no other way to solve any of our doubts abt the topic.So if there is any chance there must be special forum for this.I think Posting in general forum is not a good idea because this topic needs some higher level of technical skills and It is not a general topic to discuss.

Linux-General is a different forum to General. Apart from you, AFAIK, there have been maybe 6 posts about this that I have noticed since I joined. The level of traffic on LQ just doesn't warrant a seperate forum. Obviously, this should not stop you or anyone asking specific questions about this project. We just can't open forums dedicated to each and every open source project, the forums would become a) unwieldy and unusable and b) we'd have a stack of forums each with one member only posting in there.

Hi, I think while Xavier has a point of multiple forums becoming unwieldy and unusable - there is some truth to what Vijesh here has to say. Embedded is the wave of the future - I remember reading this article which said - You walk into a room and you probably see Windows on the Computer but what you don't see is VxWorks running on umpteen embedded devices in the room.

Linux has already captured(gaining ground in) the server domain. And a look at Fedora Core 3/SuSE 9.2 .. is enough to say that Desktop ground would be soon covered by it too.

Embedded Linux is still in its infancy - and there are lots of bright people here who can really contribute to this particular project. And a good strong Embedded Linux Platform, could bring in more than just a good feeling - lots of companies would accept Linux as mainstay OS just because of its pervasiveness.

I am with Vijeesh here ... lets have a separate forum for embedded distros - we need one here
