Instructions for GCI task


  • GCI/Coding/HelloWorld

    v24 v25  
    66This task consists of following the instructions at [wiki:GSoC/GettingStarted GSOC Getting Started] and helping improve the instructions.
     8A helpful and updated guide is now at []
    810We prefer you use a GNU/Linux distribution if possible, as these tend to be the best supported.
    3840|| embeddedt || Ubuntu 16.04 || sparc-rtems5 || Once I found the necessary commands to invoke, the RTEMS Source Builder behaved as it was supposed to. However, I ended up having to search for several documentation pages because they were either missing or difficult to find. I think that a new document should be made that contains either the whole set of steps to follow or all the links we need.
    3941|| Shashvat || CentOS 7 || sparc-rtems5 || The process described to set up the host operating system was very well compiled , the major problem i faced was that most of the documents envolved for building the rtems5 were not systematically arranged ,the process of quick start should be more explained(it was a bit vague at points.) , i suppose the explainations of various new topics(for me) like BSD(Broad support packages),Targets and architectures should be linked to the quick start , where they are first used. I faced recursive errors due to presence of corrupt files in kernel but later i decided to rebuild the system entirely and the second time it felt much easier .The mentors were very helpful , helped me get through the quick start guide(do not hesitate to ask them questions).
     42|| zehata || Ubuntu 18.04.1 || sparc-rtems5 || While the process is relatively straightforward, there are a few changes that should be made to complete the task successfully. For example, instructions on had linked to the Windows-specific guide. Between the 2 code blocks, it was stated that "Build the RTEMS Kernel (Chapter 7 Section 3.2.2 - Building the Kernel) by cloning the repository, running the bootstrap procecure, building and finally installing the kernel:", but is for Windows Hosts only, so I met with some roadblocks when trying to run the code.
