  • Building an embedded Linux system monitoring device

    by Philips

    Update: The device isn't completely working but the talk will cover debugging, setting up a build environment, Beagleboard I/O and basics of Linux network drivers.

    I will show how I built an embedded system to monitor machines on a small development network using an ARM based Linux machine with a SPI attached network adapter.

    The embedded ARM device is a "BeagleBoard":http://beagleboard.org/ that records the syslogs coming from my development systems and communicates with my "power distribution unit":http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=AP9212 to reboot them automatically if it detects a system oops. My talk will discuss building software for the ARM architecture, writing a Kernel driver for a simple network device and the automation of the system.

    At 3:50pm to 4:35pm, Wednesday 17th June

  • The Linux Kernel Development model

    by Greg K-H

    This talk will go into how the Linux kernel development model works, harnessing the energy of thousands of different developers, moving at a faster rate than any other software project ever has, yet at the same time, producing a stable and reliable kernel release every 3 months for many years.

    The different kernel trees will be explained, how people get involved and are encouraged by others, and how regressions are handled and tested for.

    At 10:00am to 10:45am, Thursday 18th June
