    Hi,

    This may seem like a somewhat naive question, but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer anywhere so maybe someone here can help.

    Is Logic's Linux BSP based on uCLinux? And if this is the case, and we build it for a Coldfire M5485EVB (which has an on-board MMU) then do we get virtual memory, or does it disable the MMU?

    Thanks,

    james

    The Logic BS is based on a full MMU-supported version of linux(linux-2.4.26), utilizing all the address translation and protection facilities of the MMU. As a result, you indeed do get a virtual memory address space, dynamic shared objects, iomap capabilites and all the other goodies that come from the standard linux MMU support.
