New Fedora 14 VM Images with RTEMS Development Environment



Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply! I though this licensing issue was resolved.

So, anything using newlib cannot be accepted into Fedora due to
licensing issues?

As far as I can tell, the only Lattice code that goes into the RTEMS
toolchains is the LM32 GCC patch, which is GPL and part of the official
GCC releases now. So this should not be a problem. Or are there some
nontrivial (i.e. copyrightable) newlib modifications made by Lattice
too?
