Prepare Your Host Computer

The host computer is a computer you use to develop applications. It runs all your tools, editors, documentation viewers, etc. To get started with RTEMS development you need tools from your host's operating system to build the RTEMS tool suite from source. This is not a one-click installation process, but there are :ref:`good reasons <WhyBuildFromSource>` to build everything from source. You need a native C, C++ and Python development environment. Please make sure that you can build native C/C++ applications on your host computer. You must be able to build native Python C modules. Usually, you have to install a Python development package for this. Please have a look at the :ref:`Host Computer <host-computer>` chapter for the gory details. In particular :ref:`Microsoft Windows <microsoft-windows>` user should do this.
