We are following up on your post Any plans to improve Ethernet interplay with Arduino sketches? and we would like to know if you still need help or if you already have an answer or solution to your question. Remember if someone replied to you with a helpful response you can mark it as correct or helpful answered. We will be waiting your response. Have a great day.
I think Oliver Keller did not actually test the system to see if it solved the issue I was also awaiting response too
I had debian running on the Galileo already sometime ago. Unfortunately, the closed source software I wanted to use at that time used some MMX instructions, which the Quark SoC has not implemented.
But my question was really about the integration of Arduino sketches with the underlying linux (regardless which type), esp. regarding Ethernet features.
For now, I have the impression that the full potential of the Galileo as an Arduino platform (and not a low power intel linux platform, because it can't compete anyway in this domain with ARM boards IMHO) is not enough embraced.
Of course you can do a lot of stuff with system() inside a sketch, but that is not really how Arduino people would expect doing things.
There should be some Galileo API to bring up the Ethernet properly with the stock linux and also offer additional functions.
you have reason
I am now developing a tomcat application for Galileo, feeding a mysql db through the Arduino sketch
just for fun
that is a nice example.
how do you feed the data to the sketch?
