About porting BSP from VxWorks 5.4 to VxWorks 5.5
We got the task to port our BSP from VxWorks 5.4 to VxWorks 5.5,because
our Firewall part will use the VxWorks Firewall library version 5.5. We are
told that it is a easier way than port Firewall from 5.5 to 5.4.
Could you please provide some documents or guide for such porting?
Is there any example to follow?
Thanks a million for any information or suggestion.
Get the Migration guide from wrs. It provides the steps for migrating
ur BSP from vx5.4 to vx5.5.

Yup, with some differences. vxworks.st_rom is a bootstrap and a
compressed vxWorks.st image with debug symbols stripped. When it starts
up it decompresses the image and boots it for you. You will need to
modify your build process to build vxWorks...Is it possible to couple Vxworks OS 5.5 with network stack from Vxworks 6.7

I am well versed with VxWorks and enjoy the new Eclipse IDE (VxWorks
6). However, my goal is to find a COTS RTOS that is cost effective and
certifiable to RTCA/DO178B level D. All the latter mentioned RTOSes
support space partitioning, which is a prerequisite for running
multiple criticality levels on the same processor. This application is
for the aerospace industry.
...VxWorks autoconf in ACE 5.4.4?
I'm relatively new to ACE and even newer to attempting to build it.
We need both VxWorks 5.5.1 and Linux w/gcc 3.4 (eg fedore core 3).
I have 5.4.4 built via autoconf (/configure etc.) for Linux, nice and clean.
I see 'vxworks' in some of the autoconf scripts but can't get it to
configure (./configure --target=vxworks or --host=vxworks etc all complain
about an unknown machine type). I'm not an autoconf guru, or even neophyte
so I need help - does ACE 5.4.4 autoconf support VxWorks yet?
Currently we build Linux via autoconf and VxWorks "the old way" - the
problem is we end up with two different directory structures so common
makefiles need to compensate (eg. use -I$ACE_ROOT for VxWorks
or -I$ACE_ROOT/include for Linux).

No, there is no autoconf support for VxWorks and there are currently no
plans to add it. Please use the traditional way of building for VxWorks (see
ACE-INSTALL.html), supply patches to add autoconf for VxWorks or sponsor
such kind of work

You can always also use the traditional way of building on Linux. Then you
have the same structure on windows and linux.

Has anyone used GreenHills Integrity/Multi? How does it compare to VxWorks?
Is there a newsgroup for GreenHills?
One difference, if it matters to your application:
Other things being equal, Integrity has interrupt latency times in a few hundred
nanoseconds range, vxWorks is in 6 to 10 microseconds range and embedded Linux
runs about 60 to 100 microseconds.

If performance is important, check out Sciopta (www.sciopta.com) for kernel
that is assembler based - very fast and small.....

...Linux Vs vxWorks
Our company is in the process of replacing the outdated vxWorks OS.
With the developments in the Linux world it is hard not to consider
that when one chooses the embedded OS. I have seen some threads on
this subject but they are all outdated. So please talk about your take
on this subject. For this purpose, please consider the latest vxWorks
offering (with kernel and user address spaces) and Linux offering from
big vendors such as Monta Vista, WindRiver etc.
I'm also concerned about the latency of the Real time Linux kernels.
Another concerns is educating my resources who are not familiar with
Thanks in advance for your valuable feedback and time.
Please consider following points as my personal opinion
a) Regarding embedded OS. Linux is now more or less equal to vxWorks
and available on all ranges of different hardware architecture. Linux
is moving very fast and looking at the trend I believe WindRiver took
a decision to go with Linux rather than going against it.
b) Till the time you talk about soft real time it is very subjected to
the context you are talking about. Linux is soft real time and vxWorks
is hard real time. In soft real time you can expect a real time
performance but not 100% deterministic. Soft-real time is good enough
for range of application (telecom/consumer device etc); However when
you need a product like robotics, Medical equipment you can't go for
an option which is not deterministc. I have seen people saying tha...vxWorks vs RTLinux

We haven't had an Image structural corruption (as opposed to logical
corruption due to Cobol bugs) since the 80s. Last case was a messed-up
pointer before HP came out with ILR. Don't remember exactly when that was, but
I do remember that we were hoping ILR would prevent future problems and kept
waiting & waiting to see if there would be any. Still waiting, even though
IRL is now off.

Posting once is probably enough...
There is a v2linux package by MontaVista. Googling v2linux currently
turns up, "http://legacy2linux.sourceforge.net/v2linux.html". This is
also useful if you develop/host vxWorks on a *nix machine. Instead of
using the simulator, you can compile a native application using this
Not sure so much about going from Linux to vxWorks. There is a lot of
functionality available in the bigger OSs that is not available in
vxWorks. For instance, "fork", "pthreads", "mmap", etc. Genearally,
you can steal routines from Linux (like libraries), but it is
difficult to take an application.

Question: I have two vxWorks boards with board A(portA) hooked to the
PC . Board A gets its vxWorks image off of the PC at boottime. Board
B is hooked directly to board A(portB). Is it possible to get board B
to get to the PC through board A to load the vxWorks image at boottime
too? I cant seem to get it done. IPS are as follows, its a series
type hook up.
[ PC ] <----> [ board A ] <----> [ board B ]
portA 192.168.31.111 -> connected directly to PC via separate
portB 126.96.36.199 -> connected directly to board B port B via
portA 188.8.131.52 -> connected directly to board A port B via
(board B port A) can ping (board A port B) but not (board A port A)
I would like to be able to get to the PC from board B at boottime.
This will not work because both interfaces in board A are in the same
subnet. If you do a routeShow you will know why. You may want to put
them in different subnet (and put Board B in the same subnet as port B
of Board A), and make Board A as default gateway of board B.

...4-port SATA RAID

have any especially good or bad experiences or, even better,
comparisons between the 3ware 8506-4LP, Adaptec 2410SA, or LSI
MegaRAID 150-4? Benchmarks and other alternatives especially welcome.
My primary concerns are operation under Linux, and all of them seem
to be very well supported, and reliability. As of now, other than the
slightly lower price of the LSI, I'm not seeing any reason to choose
one over any other.
I plan to fill in this chart as I get information:
http://moore.cx/experie...Using visionClick to debug standalone VxWorks images (vxWorks.st)
I had a question regarding debugging standalone VxWorks images
using vision probe.
The file usrConfig.c is copied into usrConfig_st.c; compiled to give
usrConfig_st.o and the c file later deleted. This object file goes
into the partial build of VxWorks.st. The important BSP functions like
usrInit and usrRoot are in this file. When using the source browser in
VisionClick, it does not resolve these functions since the associated
c file (usrConfig_st.c) is not available after the build.
I was wondering if anyone had found a way around it (apart from
modifying the build rules)

Possibly just a typo, but the macro is EXTRA_MODULES (i.e. ends in an
'S'), and the .O should probably be a .o (i.e. lower case). Of course,
on a Windoze box, the .O will be treated the same anyway, so this is
perhaps unimportant (depending on whether you are using a real OS for
development, or Windoze).
