Ah. as all the directories where named after their package-names I

It is a third-party patch found in
Is uses some timers in the pxa for soft-realtime
to create a kernel-module that does software
pwm and ppm -output on gpio-pins.
I want to feed the ppm-oufput to the ppm-decoder
in an existing rc-receiver to run the paparazzi-autopilot
on the gumstix. This way I can switch from the
autopilot to normal remote-control with only one pin
and to a manual landing of the UAV piloted.
(And I only need one wire on the solder-pads of
The hardware ppms are interesting but I cannot use
them because I want to use the quick-capture-interface
that uses the same pins. Also it has been made clear
on this list that the higher base-frequency of the hardware-
ppms on the pxa170 makes them useless for interfacing
I already ported the paparazzi-autopilot run as a
linux-usermode-program (instead of on it's custom arm or avr
- -boards) and am conducting first flight-tests of the
airframe. I may write a package-definition for paparazzi.
But then again I may not and only modify the compiler-related
makefile-definitions in my new paparazzi-build-target and
copy that one binary by hand.
You where most helpfull.
