Introduction

This tutorial presents the steps needed to obtain and install the development tools and libraries required to run EPICS IOC applications using RTEMS. As you can see by the size of this document the process isn't trivial, but it's not terribly difficult either.

Chapter two deals with the problem of getting all the tools in place. This is the most difficult task. Once the tools and operating system are working most of the work is complete. Chapter three shows the steps needed to configure and build your first EPICS application for RTEMS. After you've completed those steps you can forget about this document and use the generic EPICS documentation.

If you'd like to print this tutorial you can download a PDF version. This is a living document. Please let me (norume@aps.anl.gov) know which of these instructions worked for you and which did not.
