Obtain the Sources

You chose an installation prefix previous section. We chose :file:`$HOME/quick-start/rtems/5` as the installation prefix.

You need at least two source archives or Git repositories to work with RTEMS. You can download the source archives for a released RTEMS version or you can clone Git repositories to get all versions of RTEMS including the development head.

We will clone the Git repositories into :file:`$HOME/quick-start/src`.

The :file:`rsb` repository clone contains the :ref:`RTEMS Source Builder (RSB) <RSB>`. We clone it into :file:`rsb` to get shorter paths during the tool suite build. The :file:`rtems` repository clone contains the RTEMS sources. These two repositories are enough to get started. There are more repositories available.

Alternatively, you can download the source archives of a released RTEMS version.

This quick start chapter focuses on working with the Git repository clones since this gives you some flexibility. You can switch between branches to try out different RTEMS versions. You have access to the RTEMS source history. The RTEMS Project welcomes contributions. The Git repositories enable you to easily create patches and track local changes. If you prefer to work with archives of a released RTEMS version, then simply replace the version number 5 used throughout this chapter with the version number you selected, e.g. 4.11.

Note: See TracBrowser for help on using the repository browser.
