3The bootloader is adapted from Till Straumann's Generic Mini-loader,
4which he wrote originally for the SVGM powerpc board.
5The BSP is built and tested on the 4.7 CVS RTEMS release.

7Booting requirement :
8-------------------------
9
101) One needs to setup BOOTP/DHCP and TFTP servers and /etc/bootptab(BOOTP)
11   or /etc/dhcpd.conf (DHCP) properly to boot the system.
12   (Note : EPICS needs a NTP server).
13 
142) Please copy the prebuilt RTEMS binary (e.g. misc/rtems5500-cexp.bin)
15   and perhaps others (e.g. misc/st.sys) to the /tftpboot/epics/hostname/bin/
16   directory or the TFTPBOOT one you specified in the 'tftpGet'
17   command of the boot script (as shown in the following example).
18
193) Example of the boot script setup carried out on the MOTLoad
20   command line :
21
22MVME5500> gevEdit mot-script-boot
23(Blank line terminates input.)
24tftpGet -a4000000 -cxx.xx.xx.xx -sxx.xx.xx.xx -m255.255.254.0 -d/dev/enet0 -fepics/hostname/bin/rtems5500-cexp.bin

39
405) When generating code (especially C++) for this system, one should
41   use at least gcc-3.2 (preferrably a copy downloaded from the RTEMS
42   site [snapshot area] )
43
446) To reboot the RTEMS-MVME5500 (board reset), one can invoke the
45   rtemsReboot() command at Cexp> prompt.
46 
477) Please reference http://www.slac.stanford.edu/~strauman/rtems
48for the source code and installation guidance of cexp, GeSys and
49other useful utilities such as telnet, nfs, and so on.

518) To get started with RTEMS/EPICS and to build development
52tools and BSP, I would recommend one to reference
53http://www.aps.anl.gov/epics/base/RTEMS/tutorial/
54in additional to the RTEMS document.
