    2 MutekH is a flexible kernel, with most configuration tweaks resolved at
    3 compile time. Therefore, it can only be distributed as source. There is
    4 no library building involved.
     2See BuildingExamples page.
    53
    6 Somes pages of this wiki refer to specific versions of the MutekH source
    7 tree. This is intended. Here, we'll provide general installation notes,
    8 therefore, we'll never use an explicit revision.
    9 
    10 = Prerequisites to build MutekH =
    11 
    12 == For a Linux host (as a process) ==
    13 
    14 In order to compile MutekH as a process, like described in QuickStartUnix,
    15 you only need a working GCC and the header files for your libc. Please
    16 refer to your distribution manual to know more about this.
    17 
    18 == For SoCLib and other embedded platforms ==
    19 
    20 For embedded platforms, you'll need:
    21  * a working cross-compiler for your target architecture; you may either
    22    follow soclib:InstallationNotes, or use [source:trunk/mutekh/tools/crossgen.mk@1269 tools/crossgen.mk], see below
    23  * `dtc`, an utility to handle [FlattenedDeviceTree device trees], available at http://git.jdl.com/software/.
    24 
    25 
    26 = Getting MutekH =
    27 
    28 This is a simple svn checkout. Pay attention there are some subversion
    29 clients that cannot handle [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.0/ch07s03.html svn:externals]
    30 feature. In doubt, a vanilla svn client is recommended.
    31 
    32 {{{
    33 svn co https://www.mutekh.org/svn/mutekh/trunk/mutekh
    34 }}}
    35 
    36 If you need an explicit revision, simply add {{{-r number}}} to the command
    37 line:
    38 
    39 {{{
    40 svn co -r 1234 https://www.mutekh.org/svn/mutekh/trunk/mutekh
    41 }}}
    42 
    43 
    44 = Building cross-compilers =
    45 
    46 SoCLib installation nodes already provides a way to get cross-compilers,
    47 if you don't already have them, MutekH holds a tool
    48 to build a complete cross-compilation toolchain:
    49 
    50 The script is in [source:trunk/mutekh/tools/crossgen.mk tools/crossgen.mk].
    51 
    52 There is an inline help:
    53 {{{
    54  $ tools/crossgen.mk
    55 [prints some help]
    56 }}}
    57 
    58 You can try a line like this one to get a Mips cross-compiler:
    59 {{{
    60  $ tools/crossgen.mk all TARGET=mipsel-unknown-elf
    61 }}}
