The top-level page is locked because it's a little fragile and to prevent vandalism. If you have any suggestions (better organization, links that should be on the main page, etc.), please add a comment here.


What's the difference between Software, and "Tools, Tests, and Benchmarks"? Maybe we need to think of a better way of organizing these categories? A number of items in "Software" are really patches, like the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch, so this really isn't the best organization.

Proposal for a better organization of the main page.

  • Documentation
    • High Resolution Timers
    • Tips and Tricks of RT Programming (new article)

We aren't likely to have a growing quantity of these patches, since the -rt patch is mostly self contained with only an occaisional functional patch being called out separately. Perhaps there is a way to better represent this, but for now this might work.

  • Linux Kernel Patches
      • ktimers
      • hrtimers

  • Utilities
    • RT PATCH Manager
    • RT Watchdog
    • OSADL Real-Time Live Linux CD
  • Tests and Benchmarks
    • IBM Test Cases
    • Cyclictest
    • PI Mutex Test

Comments? (Just make changes to this structure and add comments explaining why....)

Resolved Comments

The Documentation, Utilities, and Tests and Benchmarkes blocks have been updates as described above. The Software category has been removed entirely, the idea being we will only have the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch, and related patches can be called out on the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT page.
