    3838|| OP. || Ubuntu and OS X || sparc-rtems4.11 || When I built RTEMS the first time on Ubuntu, I thought the instructions were relatively clear, but at sometimes seemed vague to me. I had a few errors when trying to build the tool set with RSB, so I had to dig around in the log files multiple times. When I built RTEMS on OS X, it didn't take long and I found it much easier than doing it on Ubuntu, probably because I already had experience. I was able to get it working the first time.
    3939|| Sal || Fedora 28 || sparc-rtems5 || I think that the instructions are well explained but in the wiki, you have to jump from page to page to find everything and there are some things that seem outdated. I think that it would be better to have a unified page with a simple step-by-step explanation of the installation process and then put links for more specific things.
     40|| Sal || Ubuntu 18.04 on Windows Subsystem for Linux on Windows 10 || arm-rtems5 || For the host I used Ubuntu 18.04 running on [ Windows Subsystem for Linux] on Windows 10. It worked fine and the process is the same that is used for real GNU/Linux systems. I didn't have to change anything from what I did when I installed RTEMS (with sparc/erc32) in Fedora 28.\\The only thing I changed is the RTEMS target to use ARM. I used ARM as the target and arm920 as the BSP. I found the process straightforward because I only had to change the command parts that had {{{sparc}}} to {{{arm}}}, and the ones that had {{{erc32}}} to {{{arm920}}}.
    4041|| 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.
    4142|| Shashvat || CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18.04 || 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).the ubuntu installation was quite similar but i faced error while bootstraping as the command was unable to access python lib , so i gave the path again and it worked fine .good luck!!
