Posted by green on Nov. 11 2004,21:58Okay, here's a question:
One of you guru dudes give me a breakdown on what this "embedded" thing is.
That should give you a starting point for your new forum.
If you make it sound exciting enuf, I might even dive into it.
Posted by Dafydd Cealleigh on Nov. 12 2004,02:32I guess the first thing I need to know is there software to burn a chip for my robot I'm makeing. And what burners work with linux?
Posted by ico2 on Nov. 12 2004,13:53dunno exactly what you are getting at there. what hardware are you using. i expect it is possible.
Posted by clacker on Nov. 12 2004,14:14Dafydd Cealleigh, this isn't the same use of the word embedded that you're used to. They are talking about dsl embedded into windows: you can run dsl under qemu as a program on your windows machine while windows is running. You are thinking embedded like the programming that goes into chips that run TVs, cars, toasters, and even the occasional hobby robot.
Posted by ico2 on Nov. 12 2004,14:17i am not sure, it seems like this is not a question of running dsl on this chip, simply manufacturing it.

Yes you are correct. I had misunderstood the use of the word 'embedded'.
So to my question, "Never mind."
Posted by half job jon on Nov. 25 2004,02:14I still dont get it, so do you mean i can put dsl on my 64 meg compact flash with myDSL apps , then run over to my friends win2k machine and run mplayer without rebooting his machine or installing anything?
can someone breakdown a howto? sounds ground breaking, or have i got it all wrong?
Posted by cbagger01 on Nov. 25 2004,02:54Yes, in theory you should be able to do this, assuming that your friend has a fairly recent computer, say a 1.7GHz or faster CPU for example.
See this thread for a more detailed explanation:
