firstname.lastname@example.org got the older NPE driver working as a full eCos

Thanks to you both Mark and Andrew! The only older version available on the
intel website seems to be 1.94, I hope this is what Jerzy used and which will
also do the job for me.
FYI: adding npe-1.4.epk to the current CVS fails with:
silence:/usr/local/src/cvs/ecos/ecos/packages$ ./ecosadmin.tcl add /tmp/rebdoot/npe-1.4.epk
ecosadmin error: extracting pkgadd.db:
tar: Read 6144 bytes from -
so it seems manual "merge" will be needed...
6144 bytes looks wrong. tar should be reading around 1MB. Looks
like something is wrong with the .epk file. The file is really
a gzip'ed tarball, so "tar -ztf npe-1.4.epk" should give you a
list of the contents.
Yes, I think the intention of the error above is that ecosadmin "detects"
error in pkgadd.db and exists making tar also exists. Anyway, the file is
OK, I've decomplressed it and did
cat pkgadd.db >> <path>/ecos.db
I've also copied Jerzy's if_npe.c and now I'm fighting with various
compilation issues. Generaly Intel code's complaining about RebBoot not
enabled. Is RedBoot required for this to work? i.e. do I need to build my
NPE-enabled eCos app including RedBoot just to be able to build it?
