Hi all,

I would like to know, whether the TC297 support Linux operation system or not? Why?

Thank you for your help,

Best regards

Hi Lucas,

The Tricore (implemented in AURIX TC2xx and TC3xx) does not have an MMU, which is mandatory for any real Linux Kernel.

Similar posix-like operating systems (not supporting central concepts like fork() and not using MMU) are Nuttix, uCLinux ... (using big parts of the Linux Kernel).

In general a port to Tricore is here possible or not known. Please check www.

Best regards
Bernie

Hi Lucas,

Did you tried installing uCLinux? If you were able to do this Please let me also know or make some comments on how you did.
