Hi, my name is Stephen Goodsell and I am working on
an EPICS project. I am working on HROS an instrument for the Gemini South
telescope in Chile. The HROS project is based at UCL, London. I am
new to EPICS and am waiting to go on a training course.
I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the
project. My problem is that the project uses VxWorks 5.2 and EPICS 3.12
gemini 5. We were sold VxWorks 5.3 but installed 5.2 as the licenses
covered older versions.
The problem is that we have a VME167 VME card and
only a VxWorks 5.3 bsp. We have been by RTP (Wind River) to install
VxWorks 5.3 and configure it to v5.2. The problem is I was told that if I
done that, EPICS wouldn't work.
Does anyone know why, and also can anyone tell me
if the licenses for bsp are backwards compatible, if so then I need to get a
copy of the VxWorks 5.2 bsp.
Lastly, does anyone know if any dates have been set
for the next EPICS training course
Thanks for your help
