Chapter 3: Prebuilt Toolset Executables

  • RPMs
  • Zipped Tar Files
  • Precompiled toolsets are available for Linux, Cygwin, FreeBSD, and Solaris. These are packaged in the following formats:

    RPM is an acronym for the RPM Package Manager. RPM is the native package installer for many Linux distributions including RedHat, SuSE, and Fedora.

    The prebuilt binaries are intended to be easy to install and the instructions are similar regardless of the host environment. There are a few structural issues with the packaging of the RTEMS Cross Toolset binaries that you need to be aware of.

    1. There are dependencies between the various packages. This requires that certain packages be installed before others may be. Some packaging formats enforce this dependency.
    2. Some packages are target CPU family independent and shared across all target architectures. These are referred to as "base" packages.
    3. Depending upon the version of GCC as well as the development host and target CPU combination, pre-built supplemental packages may be provided for Ada (gnat), Chill, Java (gcj), Fortran (g77), and Objective-C (objc). These binaries are strictly optional.

    NOTE: Installing toolset binaries does not install RTEMS itself, only the tools required to build RTEMS. See Building RTEMS for the next step in the process.
