It looks like my Samsung HL-T6189S LED DLP TV runs embedded Linux! Cool.
I was looking through the firmware downloaded from Samsung’s web site for the set (to make sure 1019 was the latest firmware for the HL-T6189S) and found the following files inside of the archive:
- run.sh : a shell script
- rc.local : a script ran during startup of many versions of Linux and Unix
- Many .so and .ko files which are shared object files (similar to DLLs) and kernel modules (similar to device drivers)
- Several .img files that appear to be compressed ROMFS file system images (compressed file system images)
Fascinating! Too bad Samsung has announced they are not developing any new DLP sets. I wonder if their LCD displays also use Linux?
