RTAI-Linux Target : Step by Step instructions for Beginners

| Watch this File

File Information

This file contains step by step instructions for beginners on how to install the RTAI Linux real time extension, and how to use it to run code generated from simulink schemes by real time workshop.

The availability of Matlab, Simulink, and Real Time Workshop either on a windows or linux machine is assumed.

The last part of the file contains instruction for the creation of a minimal stand-alone RTAI linux distribution that fits on a floppy disk. Not that anybody really uses floppies anymore, but the instructions could be taken as a reference for the creation of embedded systems that fit on flashcards or any small storage media.

Required Products Simulink Coder
MATLAB release MATLAB 7.0.1 (R14SP1)

Thanks for the excellent starting paper. I'm sure that most of the people that will download it will share the same opinion.

Hello !
Good document, but hope that author or someone could put this document or link to it under rtai homepage, as it is the place people usually start looking for information.

Specified under which conditions it is possible to skip the MESA and EFLTK steps, and clarify how to use older rtai distributions together with MATLAB versions newer than 7.0.1
