I want to use xenomai.I try to install on my pc.I read this page and did these steps->

But I didn't change configuration options.I use ubuntu 12.04 and xenomai I run "sudo ./trivial-periodic", I get a message via "Xenomai: /dev/rtheap is missing" . Is it a problem,what should I do?

When you say you didn't change the options, do you mean that you used exactly the options on that page?

Also, is there a reason you're using Xenomai instead of one of the newer versions?

I handled this problem. There are some spelling mistakes in the documentation. Thanks your commend.

For solution, follow this guide

There is a wrong thing in this documantation, don't forget resolve it!

/usr/src/xenomai-kernel-sources/scripts/ --linux=. --adeos=../ipipe-core-3.10.32-x86-2.patch

not xenomai-kernel-sources,write "xenomai-kernel-source". And the folder, is under usr/src, don't include some necessary files. So you should use from the xenomai-2.6.4 directory.

Ah that's nice, they didn't use to have that tutorial on the xenomai site. Also, if you run into other issues, I've got a bunch of additional notes here:
