    23 | Adit C. || Ubuntu 13.04 || sparc-rtems4.11 || Instructions were fairly straight forward, however I experience some trouble initially due to missing packages. I had to install the latest versions of bison, cvs, g++, flex, and texinfo. I may have had to do so since I am running Ubuntu 13.04 on a virtual machine in OSX Mavericks. I also had to python2.7-dev installed. Nonetheless, once these packages were installed, I was able to get things done relatively easily.

     24 (chrisj: I have updated the doco to go to the host setup before anything else)
    2425|-
    2526| Pavel Z. || Ubuntu 13.04 || sparc-rtems4.11 || Overall the wiki was clear on what was required. The configuration file did not accept --enable-tests=samples, so I had to consult documentation to build the hello world application found in the git repository myself. Also RTEMS was very specific with the automake version it wanted: I had to compile 1.12.2 from source
     27(chrisj: The RSB should build a suitable automake)
    2628|-
    2729| Bryan D. || Arch Linux || sparc-rtems4.11 || While compiling the tools and RTEMS I only encountered two problems. The first one was with binutils; for some reason, it refused to compile outside the source directory, so I compiled it in the source directory. The second problem was with building RTEMS itself. The error was easy to fix though and just required removing the --disable-posix flag when calling ./configure.
     30(chrisj: I have no idea about building in the source dir)
    2831|-
    2932| Chirayu D. || Arch Linux || sparc-rtems4.11 || I had to install an older version of texinfo, but other than that it worked fine. I did not use the --disable-posix flag when calling ./configure.
    3033|-
    3134| Kevin F. || Linux Mint 13 LTS || sparc-rtems4.11 || I made lots of errors myself, but overall the instructions were fairly clear. Perhaps the RSB Quick Start should explain moving executables a bit more (like where to find them) and the RTEMS Quick Start should have remarked that you should put export the PATH to the tools bin you compiled. I needed python2.7-dev installed.
     35(chrisj: Add something about installing executables. The export path is already present in the documentation. I have tried to make it stand out a little more)
    3236|-
    3337| An Ha || Arch Linux || sparc-rtems4.11 || The directions were easy to follow, however, when running the source-builder, sb-check and sb-set-builder, I had to change the first lines from /usr/bin/env python, to /usr/bin/env python2, otherwise it would run the code in python 3, not 2. I also had to install texinfo-legacy from AUR instead of texinfo to fix the problem when building binutils (as stated in the documentation). I also did not have to use the --disable-posix flag when calling ./configure.
     38(chrisj: Maybe the RSB need to work on both versions of Python. I need the commands to install packages as I have no idea)
    3439|-
    3540| Zsolt Sz. || Xubuntu || sparc-rtems4.11 || I was having some troubles at the beginning, but now I hope that everything will work out fine.
     
    3843|-
    3944| Evan M. || Ubuntu || sparc-rtems4.11 || I found the directions straightforward, although I do admit I had some trouble from time to time. It also seemed like several pages contradicted each other, but that might have been on my side due to my lack of experience.
     45(chrisj: I need more detail to understand the contradictions)
    4046|-
    4147| Kkvazar Q. || Fedora 20 || sparc-rtems4.11 || I wasn't able to finish the task, because I got lost in the documentation, the pages weren't well related and were contradicting. Some useful pages weren't easy to find such as the git README.
    4248I expected sb-check to tell me about missing devel libs, but it didn't. 'bootstrap' was hard to find and it failed on missing files. Most of the questions I had were asked online, but weren't answered.
     49(chrisj: The documentation states the RSB is not package manager)
