ok so that's the fully preemptable kernel then...that's exactly what I wanted. So looks like I had it done all along from the build root. Thanks Dave. I should be able to find all the api's I need in the kernel dirctory right? Is there any other documentation I can look at (I found the RT wiki but that's not quite right), so do you guys have any recomendations for good books (POSIX/realtime). I guess all the real time stuff (besides POSIX stuff) just got merged into the kernel at 2.6.18 so I guess there's not going to be much documentation or tutorials yet.....ohh well. You remember best if you learn the hard way.

Hi Craig/Jess,

Not so quick.

If you look in arch/arm/Kconfig, you'll see that it does in fact
support CONFIG_PREEMPT, just not the other two options in

I've been using CONFIG_PREEMPT for quite a while on an ARM926 with no problems.
