Porting FreeRTOS to BeagleBone

Posted by Angel Eyes on August 17, 2012
Has anyone already done the port on BeagleBone - http://beagleboard.org/bone/ with all required drivers and network stacks ?

I am planning to make a port of FreeRTOS to the BeagleBone board. By porting I mean that I will be integrating the drivers obtained from Texas Instrumernts Starterware with FreeRTOS and contribute the port here, I will need around 3 to 4 months as I will not be working on this full time. The Starterware drivers are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.

By the question "Can I integrate thethese drivers with FreeRTOS", I meant, legally can I integrate these Drivers with FreeRTOS and yet keep the drivers under the the Creative Commons License? Pardon my ignorance.

Yes - not a problem. Only the FreeRTOS kernel is covered by the FreeRTOS license. Code that just uses the kernel, or communicates with the kernel through it's API remain under their original license.
