Neuros google group:


What I gather from this:
  * Neuros ppl: Joe, Jason, Ugo(nero)
  * TI has open-sourced DSPLink and Codec Engine (CE)
  * OSD2 is intended as a recording device

In jan/feb there were some problems with integration with mainline
kernel.  Is this fixed now?

I am running Linux version 2.6.23-davinci1 so I guess this is not the
neuros kernel?  No. That's the neuros kernel.  The last commit is:

Merging neuros changes by Jorge Luis Zapata:

So, where's the action?
I tried "make vlc" but this didn't work..

What's the quickest way to get to working a/v playback?


  One problem that they pointed out (and I think just might be the
  show-stopper) is that there are yet no free compilers for the DM6446
  DSP used by DaVinci.  There was a port of GCC for the earlier DSPs,
  but I don't know how that's going with the new ones.

So if I understand correctly, it is now possible to get at the tools,
but it requires a TI registration.  OK. registered and i get this:

  Free downloads of TI Code Generation Tools for all instruction set
  architectures produced by TI are available here. ...

Ok, done for today. 
I don't know what to do with it..
