The Operating System that will be used with the RCX Controller is BrickOs.
Once the BrickOs operating system has been installed on the RCX Controller, then a compiled C program for the RCX Controller may be installed.
If there is a message which indicates that the existing operating system could not be deleted, remove one battery, press the On-Off key, replace the battery and repeat the command to install the operating system.

 brickOS - Installation RFC
Today all of these forms of use require downloading the source package and building the operating system and tools after which one can finally start writing code for the robots and/or modifying the operating system and testing it.
When I packaged brickOS for Debian where the most common model is for packages to be installed and ready for immediate use I created the first install of brickOS.
At the time I was not part of the brickOS team so I simply built from source and setup my packaging rules to find the appropriate pieces and copy them to the proper installed location.

The original operating system designed to drive the brick’s processor by Lego is the Mindstorm OS that comes with the brick, it is a powerful OS with a graphical program building API that can be used by younger audiences.
At the start of the operating system a dummy processes is created called pd_single this is used the first time the scheduler runs and is taken off when it comes time to select a new process, And is not used again until all processes have been removed.
The first method we used to debug the operating system is scattered throughout the code in the kernel/tm.c file(found in sections 3 and 4).

Distributed and Parallel Robot System Otto J. Anshus Department of Computer Science University of Tromsoe Norway As a part of a course on distributed systems, we have developed a distributed and parallel robot project using computers and networks of different performance and failure characteristics.
In our experience the system practically guarantees that a lot of work is done on the project as misbehaving robots are much more fun than any other misbehaving computers.
Overall, the system is simple enough to be understood, but complex enough to provide for an interesting distributed system with specialized services including a cluster for high performance computing.

 Operating Systems and Middleware Group at HPI - Distributed Control Lab
The Distributed Control Lab is situated at the Operating Systems and Middleware Chair and deals with software paradigms and design patterns that allow an interconnection of middleware-based components and embedded mobile systems.
The primary point of interest is how to reach a predictable system behaviour (regarding to timing behaviour, fault tolerance or resource usage) in an unstable environment.
The evaluation of the different approaches is done with the help of case studies, one example is a web-based control of mobile robots in the lab.
