At last I could force myself to get that old 486 from the attic - my first gateway - to serve a new purpose
If all goes fine, I'll be setting up a PXE environment (via a netboot disk, as the BIOS is too old and the network card is ISA) next week, so i can comfortably boot a new kernel onto the box.
My intent is to get RTAI (RealTime linux) working on the box and see if I can do something with the Perl bindings for LXRT. My goal is to control a hobby servo with a signal generated from Perl
I'm not sure if this is possible, or even desirable, but i want to get my feet wet on RT linux!
On the hardware spectrum of things, I've updated my site about robots to include my latest contraption. Killerbee is the name of a nano sumo robot I build, which normally would compete at robolympics if it was finished in time. Deadline to finish it would have been last monday as it needed to be shipped from Belgium to the US also
