SOC Debian packages and scripts

Project Description

<p> This project will create a set of .deb packages for the tool chain for building RTEMS applications. This will be designed around the same structure that is used for the current rpm packages. In addition to these packages there will scripts set up to help maintain the packages by automating the generation of new packages when a new version of RTEMS is released. These packages will be setup for use on x86 based hardware as a development system and either Ubuntu or Debian as a host operating system. In addition to creating these packages for community use there is the intent to use them to generate a liveCD based off of Ubuntu. </p>= Mentor =
