I've been shown a new dev kit for the AVR AT327000 that uses embedded linux and I wanted to get advice and opinions on this processor. I'm not familiar with AVR processors at all. I'd like to use the GCC compiler. Is this well supported? Does anyone know who's done the Linux port and is it well supported? I'd like to use this also outside of an embedded linux environment. Is it a go...

I think this is little OT here, because the question is mostly network oriented. However my nodes will be Linux embedded boxes and some solutions could be very low-level, so I think many of you could help me in some way. I have N Ethernet hosts based on embedded Linux. Each one features an Ethernet interface dedicated to the final user that could change the IP address configuration.

I'm new to embedded Linux so this question could be very simple for many of you. Most probably, it isn't directly related to embedded world, but to Linux OS generally. Anyway I think it is a common scenario in embedded applications. I'm going to develop a local/remote control of an electronic device. It communicates through a RS485 link. The local control will be a touch-screen display...

Thank to "cs_posting", Mil Wilson, and all the other respondents, I have gotten my Linux machine talking to my Luminary LM3S811 evaluation board. The board uses an FTDI FT2232D chip in a design that is advertised as being compliant to the OpenOCD design, but which uses a unique product ID. Luminary provides Windows device drivers, but no Linux support. It turns out that I had to edit ...

We are seeing lots of low-cost Linux laptops latetely, most of them with sub-Gigaherz processors. These are fine for simple tasks but not for watching video and audio/video streaming and editing.
