Katix embedded linux distribution 02.11.2004
Kate Alhola 2004
Katix embedded linux distribution is based on DENX embedded linux distribution for Freescale embedded PPC processors. As development environment, the DENX ELDK is used. The Katix embedded linux filesystems are based on ELDK and Yellow dog linux.
Katix embedded linux kernel is Denx DENX linuxppc_2_4_devel kernel with numerous additions and small fixes.
Katix embedded linux kernel
Katix embedded linux kernel can be loaded from downloads section. There is acailable full source tree snapshots, compiled uImages for iti5200 and derivatives and diffs agains denx kernel tree ( 20.8.2004 there is raw diff also available against current denx tree. It is not yet completelly cleaned up )
ITIPower5200 board support
ITIpower5200 board support adds new target board in platforms/machine type with CONFIG_ITI5200 The iti5200 support contais support for numerous customer tailored iti5200 derived boards. Iti5200 support is based on Freescale Icecube with following additions.
MMC subsystemMMC/SD subsystem in merged from ARM linux tree. Target driver for MMC to work with SPI subsystem.
Additional I2C driversExtra i2c drivers is added from other kernel trees and some new will be written
New frame buffer driversSupport for new frame buffer devices. In addition to Fujitsu Coral B from Denx, there will be support for SPI conencted small graphical LCD displays, FPGA based memory mapped frame buffer and Ati Rage Mobility support
Katix embedded linux filesystem imagesKatix embedded linux filesystem images can be loaded from downloads section. There is acailable both jffs2 images and tar.bz2 files
Minimum image for command line and ip network useThis is ready made image when no graphical display is needed and amount of used memory is critical. This filesystem image is available in couble of days when i got decided what parts i like to include on it.
Graphical with Embedded QT / QtopiaGraphical image with embedded QT / Qtopia offers relativelly compact memory usage with all QT features. At the moment when only Fujitsu CoralB framebuffer driver is available, embedded QT is tested but need little hacking to get working with little endian Coral B. This image will be provided when other frame buffer devices are ready and/or modifications to embedded QT si done.
Graphical with X11 and QTThis image is based on XFree86 4.4 that can be downloaded as separatelly from downloads. This flash image contais striped down version of above XFree86 4.4 and QT libraries. This filesystem image is under testing and sqezzing to fit as flash image.
