-	  Xenomai Kernel part.
+	  Xenomai is split in two parts: a kernel part and a userspace
+	  part. Enabling this option automatically selects the Xenomai
+	  package and helps in patching the Linux kernel built by
+	  Buildroot with the Xenomai kernel part (ie Adeos/Ipipe).
-	  In the current version of Xenomai, the following kernel
-	  versions are supported: on Blackfin, 2.6.34 and, on
-	  SH4,, on x86,,,, on
-	  ARM,,,, on NIOS2, 2.6.35, on
-	  PowerPC,,, 3.0.8.
+	  You can find the currently supported kernel versions by
+	  looking at the available patches in the Xenomai sources
+	  tree: ksrc/arch/$(ARCH)/patches
+	  However, it is recommended to use the latest version of the
+	  Adeos/Ipipe patch available at
+	  http://download.gna.org/adeos/patches
+	  Xenomai is know to support Blackfin, SH4, x86, ARM, NIOS2
+	  and PowerPC architectures.
 comment "xenomai needs a toolchain w/ threads"

 	string "Path for Adeos patch file"
 	  Optionally, explicitly specify the Adeos patch to use.
-	  Download it at http://download.gna.org/adeos/patches/v2.6/$(ARCH)/
+	  Download it at http://download.gna.org/adeos/patches
 	  and verify that your kernel version in buildroot matches.
