Hi, i am currently doing a project on black fin dsp. I use visual dsp 4++ in the XP . I heard about uc linux somewhere . I dont get it.
Do i have to install uc Linux on Ubuntu or is it another operating system.
or do i just download some library file which helps me cross compile.
Does any one here use uclinux if so your advise would be most helpful.

Let me preface this by saying that I have never played with uClinux, but I did find it's online documentation, which should help you get started. (After that you're on your own, as it appears that they do not have a forum)

http://www.uclinux.org/get_started/uClinuxbeginner.html

http://www.uclinux.org/get_started/go-cd.html

http://www.ucdot.org/archive/tb/tb20020807.shtml

That last one looks to be the Dev's forum, but I do not know if a regular user will be able to get an account there.

Hope it works out for you & Good Luck!

P.S. To answer your inquiry, this is from uClinux's site:
What is uClinux?

The original uClinux was a derivative of Linux 2.0 kernel intended for microcontrollers without Memory Management Units (MMUs). However, the Linux/Microcontroller Project has grown both in brand recognition and coverage of processor architectures. Today's uClinux as an operating system includes Linux kernel releases for 2.0 2.4 and 2.6 as well as a collection of user applications, libraries and tool chains.
