Which embedded Linux to choose?

Started by rob January 8, 2004
We plan to start a new project "Network attached storage file server" and we
plan to use IBM 405 PPC processor and the embedded Linux for the project.
Just wondring who has any good or bad opinion and experiences which embedded
Linux Vendors to choose?

Thanks

We had good luck with Montavista Linux (from http://montavista.com). It's a bit pricy, but they do a LOT of work supporting embedded linux and gcc, so they have good people. However, depending on the level of Linux expertise at your company, you might also be able to do well with the free ELDK from http://denx.de or even the roll-your-own ptxdist from http://ptxdist.sf.net together with u-boot from http://sourceforge.net/projects/u-boot/ - Dan

Hi.We have the same situtation right here . We dont any experience o Linux systems and we dont want to pay high prices. After my research o the net I saw that it's possible to use any Linux with 2.6 Kerne installed will function as an rtos? Is that true?
