Panasonic DVD-RAM Drive Gets Linux OS Image Support

Panasonic(R) and Lineo(R), Inc., today announced the availability of a Lineo Embedix(TM) embedded Linux(TM) operating system image for Panasonic's OEM DVD-RAM drive.

According to the companies, by using an Embedix image created with the Lineo Embedix Software Development Kit (SDK) 2.0, the Panasonic 4.7/9.4GB rewritable DVD drive becomes a removable mass storage solution for any embedded device with an ATAPI or SCSI connector.

Lineo says Lineo Embedix differs from a traditional distribution of the Linux operating system because it includes source code packages and a set of patches and configuration files required to create the binary software for an embedded target system. Embedded features include a broad range of capabilities including 2D and 3D graphics, fonts, streaming video and audio.
