RTEMS Linker and Tester Wiki Confusion

Reported by: Joel Sherrill Owned by: Chris Johns
Priority: normal Milestone: Indefinite
Component: doc Version: 5
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:

Description has two links in the first bullet list which do not go to pages.

+ RTEMS Linker
+ RTEMS Tester

RTEMS Trace Linker has a write up at but in a couple of places uses the phrase "RTEMS Linker."

I think the references to RTEMS Linker on the RTEMS Trace Linker page are incorrect but you need to judge.

Is there a page for the RTEMS Linker as used for dynamic loading?

Is there a page for the RTEMS Tester so the link can be fixed?

If nothing else, I think you have some notes that could be inserted into starting points on the pages.

The missing links need pages added. We need to review and update the existing content if present and either move it to a suitable spot in the new wiki's tree and update if needed or provide a new page.

I would rather need pages added or moves and updated than linking to some of the existing pages. Having out of date or invalid pages can be worse than nothing at all.

You can make this a GCI task if you want, either to follow through on this ticket, or create a few discrete tasks related to the specific pages you want dealt with.

As you point out the trace linker is referenced under tracing. I think we need a page under the tools project about the tool and development of it. I am not sure how to create a suitable GCI task for this.

I am not sure the RTEMS linker is a suitable GCI topic, it is a complex topic. It will take me a while to figure out the details.

Milestone: 4.12.0Indefinite

I have added pages in the wiki pointing to the RTEMS User Guide however the RTEMS Linker is not documented in the User Guide yet. I am not sure when I can get to this and it should not hold a release up.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
