Toolchain

Thanks to Ralphs continous improvements on the RTEMS Toolchain packages you can download automatically generated RPMS of the toolchain from http://www.rtems.com/ftp/pub/rtems/linux/4.8

If you do use a debian based distribution you might add a line like : <blockquote> deb http://www.itasat.ita.br/rtems/ unstable main </blockquote> to your apt.sources

If you want to build your toolchain by yourself : donwload binutils 2.17, gcc 4.2 and newlib 1.15, apply Ralfs patches from RTEMS CVS (inside the contrib directory) and compile the for the bfin-rtems target.

Hardware Debugging

During devolping of this BSP the Icebear JTAG adaptor has proved to be very helpful. http://www.section5.ch/icebear

Wishlist
