8 August 2008
This is the source distribution for RTEMS 4.7.3, add-ons, and
documentation. The primary development platforms supported are
GNU/Linux distribtions which use RPMs.
The 4.7.3 release is the third release in the 4.7.3 series.
It includes all bug fixes found in the 4.6 series along
with a number of enhancements and bug fixes since the
4.7.2 release. The bugs fixed along with some of the
enhancements included between the 4.6 and 4.7 release
series are listed at:
Specific issues addressed between 4.7.2 and 4.7.3 are
listed in the file PRs-closed-4.7.3.
For Fedora users, loading the prebuilt tools should be
very easy and something like this:
(1) Load the appropriate Yum repository configuration
# Replace NNN with your 1-8 to reflect the Fedora version
# Replace ARCH with your i386 or x86_64 to reflect your host architecture
rpm -ivh ftp://ftp.rtems.org/pub/rtems/linux/4.7/fedora/NNN/ARCH/rtems-4.7-yum-conf-0.10-1.fcNNN.noarch.rpm
(2) Load cross development RPMs for your target architecture
along with the RTEMS 4.7 specific version of GNU autoconf
# Replace CPU with the name of the CPU architecture you
# want to use RTEMS on. Choice are:
# arm avr h8300 i386 m68k mips powerpc sh sparc
yum -y install "*4.7*CPU*" "*4.7*auto*"
That's it. You should be able to configure and build RTEMS
at the point. If targeting a simulator BSP included with
GDB (sparc/sis, powerpc/psim, or mips/jm43904), it is possible
to be able to install the tools, build RTEMS and run target
executables in a matter of minutes.
Configuring qemu so that it will boot an RTEMS application for
the i386/pc386 takes a bit longer but is still quite straightforward.
Normally it takes longer to download the tools via ftp than to
