    25 If you are interested in this, please consider sponsoring an RTEMS developer to move it forward.  This requires hands-on system administrator and build farm setup.

     27For the time being, the following procedure can be used. (Crude, but works)
     28
     29 *  Download the rpms from [http://www.rtems.org/ftp/pub/rtems/linux/ here ] by selecting the relevant RTEMS version, the preferred rpm distro, the distro version and finally the appropriate architecture.
     30  *  You will need to download all those files that pertain to the architecture you want to build RTEMS for. For instance, if you are building RTEMS for sparc then download all the files that contain the word sparc in the filename.
     31  *  Also download all the common files - these are the rpms of the tools needed to build RTEMS. These are apt-conf, autoconf, automake, binutils, gcc, gdb, newlib
     32
     33 *  Now that the files have been downloaded we need to convert the rpms to debs.
     34  *  Run `sudo apt-get install alien` to install alien. Alien is a program to convert rpms to debs (to convert from one packaging form to another to be precise).
     35  *  cd into the directory containing the rpm files and run `alien -d *.rpm` - the -d option specifies that the output file must be .deb. That must convert all rpms to debs
     36  *  Now to install the debs, we run `dpkg -i *.deb`.
     37  *  Now all the build tools are installed and the procedure in the [http://www.rtems.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_Start Quick Start] page may be followed to build.
