Re: [bluetooth-dev] What's the difference - running stack on PC v ersus on ARM???

Thanks to everyone for the assistance.

The problem is resolved. As it happens, I had
both the 0.0.8 and an earlier realise on my system and
I had not updated the PATH to the sdp server when
I moved to 0.0.8, so it was picking up the old sdp server.
When I corrected this I was then successful in completing
a dial up networking connection from my laptop to my
Assabet system.

One question though - the link seems slow: is this because
I have debug dump turned on, or because I need to allocate
additional channels for the ppp connection, or because I need
to change MTU sizes, or.....

Can someone please advise me on how to increase the bandwidth
allocated for the dial up networking PPP connection.

I don't think that is it. Differences between the ARM and PC (x86) are
likely due to differences between `char', `signed char' and `unsigned

The ARM processors generally use "little endian" mode. They have a
switch like the PowerPC that can change at boot time between "big" and
"little" endian modes. However, all ARM uProcessors (except Hitachi
or Samsung?) have set up the on-board peripherals to use little endian
mode. So most ARM systems use little endian mode. Just like most
PowerPC systems use big endian mode. The processors are capable of
both, but in reality they are usually in one mode.

Now, the ARM treats `unadorned' characters as "unsigned char" as it
can represent them in this form more easily. The PC (x86) and most
other compilers treat "char" as "signed char". Most programmers
aren't aware that this is a possible portability issue. Endianess is
one of the bigger portability problems, but not in this case. Alignment
issues would also be big on the portability list...
