I want to know where can I get BlueCat Linux for Microblaze core? Is it included with the "Embedded Development HW/SW Kit – Spartan-3A DSP S3D1800A MicroBlaze Processor Edition" ( http://www.xilinx.com/products/devkits/DO-SD1800A-EDK-DK-UNI-G.htm )?
Waiting for your response.
Thanx for any help.

I don't think it's included. You have to buy it from LynuxWorks, though if you can find someone that's already got it, you should be able to get a copy of it (though not any non-GPL tools or scripts they might use in their build system).
I've used the Linux port from PetaLogix instead. They have both uCLinux, for MB without MMU, and a test release of full Linux for MB with MMU. Both can be downloaded from their web site. (PetaLogix does use some non-GPL tools or scripts in their build system.)

Thanx for the reply. I've looked on the LynuxWorks website but couldn't find any page related to buying the full version of BlueCat for Microblaze core. Any idea?

There's a "how to order" link at the bottom of the page. As far as I can tell, though, it just says you have to order from a sales office. That's one reason I used PetaLinux instead. I don't like dealing with companies that aren't willing to put their product prices on their web site and accept orders online. That always suggests to me that one or more of the following may be true:
