uclinux on sama5d3 possibility?

Fri Jan 23, 2015 9:20 am

Hi,

I wanted to port ucLinux on SAMA5D3.

1. Is it possible?
2. How much changes will be required in uclinux kernel for porting?
3. How will uboot boots uclinux kernel instead of linux kernel?
4. other details?

Why?
What advantage do you think uClinux has over Linux when the SoC does have an MMU?
Are you aware of the disadvantages that uClinux has compared to Linux?
Would you choose Vista over Windows 7?

Thanks for the reply,
I wanted to port our "module" on uClinux, so that is why I was asking for its possibility on ATSAMA5D3. Its a customer requirement for uClinux, and it had to be on uClinux and not Linux.

So the question remains: Why?
(is it some real-time constrains? need for flat memory model? or is it just craziness?)
