Unfortunately there are conflicting requirements on the
kernel-version (by ndiswrapper
for running Wireless-card and by the RTAI realtime operating
system). I'll leave this problem for later.
I bought the PCAN interface, which is a buffered
interface between a CAN-bus and a USB-port.
also offering an obfuscated-source driver (see driver-page).
The next step is a difficult one for me: I'll have to
connect microcontrollers to a CAN-bus (and to sensors and
actors of course).
So far I tried an Infineon-C167, which was at
hand. I gave up, because there is no properly documented
I'll have to try Atmel AVR next. It seems to have
a strong developer-base.
So I feel safer to go in this
