Subject: Re: [Caml-list] PowerPC 405
Hello Basile, thank you for your reply.

Yes, it will run Linux. It will have the uclibC or even the lib C.
The best case is to run native code for better performance. We'd like to
cross-compile for the PowerPC.

I'm not a FPGA expert, I'm asking questions for a colleague who works on it.

>From what you're saying, it should work properly because of the non-exotic
environment thanks to Linux. Am I correct ?

Regards.
