I realized I didn't answer this question in my last response. The
short answer is yes. visionICE will download a Linux image just fine.
I successfully ported Linux to our custom MPC850 hardware and I used
visionICE/visionEVENT/visionCLICK to do it. The problem arises when
the startup code turns the MMU on. At that point, the visionICE/
visionCLICK combination becomes useless. Further, there is no support
for either kernel or user-land debugging once Linux is up and running.
Note that our visionICE hardware and visionCLICK software is a couple
of years old and WRS may have added some Linux support since that time.
I'd still like to have a BDI2000.
