This paper details the technical issues found in late 2005 when porting Linux to two different embedded platforms, namely an XScale-based rugged handheld device for industrial and military applications (previously running Windows CE) and a PowerPC-based board used in a private branch exchange (PBX) system. Both ports are based on kernel 2.6, and the latter makes use of real-time capabilities provided by RTAI.
