Subject: [Celinux-dev] CELF Embedded Developer BOF at OLS
To: CE Linux Developers List <celinux-dev(a)tree.celinuxforum.org>,
CELF will be hosting an Embedded Developer Bird's of a Feather
session at the Ottawa Linux Symposium today. This BOF will showcase
some of the work that CELF has funded or is interested in.
There will be interesting mini-talks, demos, and open discussion.
The BOF is open to the public. You do not need to be a registered
attendee of OLS to attend. Feel free to come and discuss your own
There will be prizes, including a complete embedded development
system donated by Buffalo!!
Here is the agenda:
* Pagemap patches - Matt Mackall
Discussion and demo of pagemap patches and tools for showing accurate
memory measurements for Linux systems. This is a really cool new set
of features in the Linux kernel to allow developers to get a much
better understanding of how memory is used on their systems. This
talk was one of the highlights of the Embedded Linux Conference, held
* Size and bootup time reduction techniques - Michael Opdenacker
Michael has collected information from the CELF web site, and
presents various methods of reducing system size and bootup time.
* Realtime testing for embedded platforms - Tim Bird Tim has
collected information from several RT-preempt test efforts by CELF
members in the last year. He will describe RT testing techniques and
issues, as well as some results.
* Fedora on ARM project - Manas Saksena Manas will describe the
Fedora on ARM project, which is just getting started. This could be
a very interesting new distribution for embedded systems.
* Low-cost Arm-based development system - Tatsuo Inagaki Tatsuo,
representing Buffalo corporation, will describe and demo a low-cost
ARM development system, based on their NAS product running embedded
* Lightning talks, demos, and open discussion!
