Remove relnotes are per Joel -- it has no use anymore.
It is severely out of date we will write new information elsewhere. Plus the new website has a lot of similar info.

-Introduction
-############
-
-This document describes the contents, installation
-procedure, and current status of Release 4.10.99.0 of the RTEMS
-executive. An installation procedure is provided which
-describes the steps necessary to load and configure the RTEMS
-environment, including the GNU Development Environment and the
-NEWLIB ANSI C Library, on a host computer. The status of
-the RTEMS environment is given, which includes supported
-processors and target boards, versions of the GNU utilities
-which were used by the RTEMS developers for this release,
-support libraries status, features which are not implemented,
-and any known existing problems.
-
-This RTEMS release package contains the following general components:
-
-- RTEMS C Executive
-
-- RTEMS C Documentation Set
-
-- RTEMS NEWLIB ANSI C Library
-
-- Patches to GNU Development Tools
-
-There are multiple mailing lists dedicated to RTEMS.
-Each list may be subscribed to, archives view, etc. by visitinghttp://www.rtems.org/mailman/listinfo.
-
-Supporting Tools
-================
-
-This section discusses the freely available tools and
-libraries which are part of the RTEMS Development Environment.
-None of the tools discussed in this section were developed by
-the RTEMS project, although many do include submissions from the
-project. All of the tools and libraries required to build RTEMS
-are freely available. The home ftp site for most of the non-RTEMS
-specific tools is either prep.ai.mit.edu (18.71.0.38) or
-ftp.cygnus.com (140.174.1.3).
-
-Specifically of interest to embedded systems developers
-using the GNU tools is the crossgcc mailing list. This is
-a Majordomo style mailing list and may be subscribed to
-by sending a message to crossgcc-request@cygnus.com with
-the following line as the body:
-.. code:: c
-
- subscribe rtems_user@your_email_goes_here.com
-
-Please replace rtems_user@your_email_goes_here.com with your
-email address. The FAQ for crossgcc is in the /pub/embedded/crossgcc
-directory on ftp.cygnus.com (205.180.83.42).
-
-GNU Development Tools
----------------------
-
-Numerous GNU tools are used in the RTEMS Development
-Environment including C and Ada compilers, the GNU make program,
-GNU m4, the GNU assembler and binary utilities (linker,
-librarian, etc.), GNU tar, GNU zip, and the GNU debugger. These
-tools are distributed in source form and are all licensed under
-the GNU Public License which allows for unrestricted
-distribution under the condition that source code always be
-available. The Free Software Foundation is officially the
-originator of most of the GNU tools although many individuals
-have contributed to the GNU projects. In keeping with the
-spirit of the GPL, most of the time the GNU tools are
-distributed as source code without executables. It is the
-responsibility of the local site to install each tool. Numerous
-organizations and individuals supply executables for the GNU
-tools. All are required by the terms of the GPL to also make
-the source code available to the end user.
-
-The primary ftp site for the FSF GNU tools is
-prep.ai.mit.edu (18.71.0.38) in the /pub/gnu directory. These
-tools are mirrored on numerous ftp sites.
-
-ANSI C Libraries
-----------------
-
-This section discusses the following freely
-distributable ANSI C Libraries:
-
-- GNU C Library, and
-
-- NEWLIB
-
-No C Library is included in the standard RTEMS
-distribution. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain
-and install a C Library separately.
-
-GNU C Library
--------------
-
-The GNU C Library is a robust and well-documented C
-Library which is distributed under the terms of the Library GNU
-Public License (LGPL). This library was not designed for use in
-real-time, embedded systems and the resource requirements of
-some of the routines in this library are an obvious indication
-of this. Additionally, this library does not have support for
-reentrancy in the sense that each task in a multitasking system
-could safely invoke every routine in the library. Finally, the
-distribution terms of the LGPL are considered undesirable by
-many embedded systems developers. However, the GNU C Library is
-very complete and is compliant with as many standards as
-possible. Because of this, it may be the only choice for many
-developers.
-
-NEWLIB C Library
-----------------
-
-The NEWLIB C Library was specifically designed for real-time embedded
-systems. It is a small, reasonably documented Library with support
-for reentrancy. This library is a collection of freely distributable
-and public domain source code and is freely distributable with as few
-restrictions as possible placed on the end user.
-
-Documentation
-=============
-
-The RTEMS Documentation Set is provided online at http://www.rtems.org/onlinedocs.html
-as reference information for all levels of RTEMS users.
-
-The RTEMS documentation set is available in HTML, PostScript, PDF, and DVI.

-Installation Procedure
-######################
-
-Introduction
-============
-
-This chapter describes the process of installing and
-configuring RTEMS and a cross-development environment based on
-freely available tools and libraries.
-
-RTEMS FTP Site Organization
-===========================
-
-RTEMS is distributed only via anonymous ftp.
-
-This section will discuss how to navigate the RTEMS
-ftp site and unarchive the files in the RTEMS and GNU package
-distributions. All example commands will be given in a shell
-independent fashion unless otherwise noted.
-
-Throughout the rest of this manual
-<RTEMS_distribution> will be used as the parent of components
-within the RTEMS distribution. For persons using the ftp
-distribution found on the primary ftp site for RTEMS,
-<RTEMS_distribution> are found under this directoryftp://ftp.rtems.com/pub/rtems/. HTTP access to the
-ftp site is available via http://www.rtems.org/ftp/pub/rtems.
-
-The archive files for RTEMS Release 4.10.99.0 are found
-under the directory <RTEMS_distribution>. This directory
-contains the files which comprise this relase as well as any
-patches which may be required for other tools.
-
-The complete source code and documentation set for
-the C language implementation of RTEMS is provided.
-
-Unarchiving the RTEMS and GNU Components
-========================================
-
-Many of the components of the RTEMS release are
-"tarred, zipped" files and have the .tar.gz or .tgz extension.
-The GNU zip package is required to unarchives these files on the
-RTEMS ftp site. If this package is not installed, the source
-can be found in the filesftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.2.4.shar orftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.2.4.tar. It may be
-restored using a command similar to the following:
-.. code:: c
-
- tar xvf gzip-1.2.4.tar
- OR
- sh gzip-1.2.4.shar
-
-This will create a subdirectory gzip-1.2.4 in the
-current directory. Please examine the files README and INSTALL
-and follow the instructions provided there.
-
-[Note: The GNU tools follow a standard packaging procedure
-They will unarchive into a directory based on the package name and version
-number. For detailed instructions on compilation and
-installation of the GNU tools, please refer to the instructions for
-each GNU tool.]
-
-Files which have been "tarred, zipped" (i.e. .tar.gz
-or .tgz extension) may be unarchived with a command similar to
-one of the following:
-.. code:: c
-
- gzcat <file>.tgz | tar xvof -
- OR
- gunzip -c <file>.tgz | tar xvof -
- OR
- gtar xzvf <file>.tgz
-
-NOTE: gunzip -c is equivalent to gzcat, while gtar is GNU tar.
-
-Given that the necessary utility programs are
-installed, any of the above commands will extract the contents
-of <file>.tar.gz into the current directory. All of the RTEMS
-components will be extracted into the subdirectory rtems-4.10.99.0.
-To view the contents of a component without restoring any files,
-use a command similar to the following:
-.. code:: c
-
- gzcat <file>.tgz | tar tvf -
-
-Installing a Cross-Development GNU Toolset
-==========================================
-
-This sections describes how to build and install the
-FSF GNU tools for use as a cross-compilation system. These
-tools are used by the RTEMS developers. Every effort has been
-made to make these instructions accurate and complete. However,
-it is recommended that the individual doing the installation
-read the appropriate installation notes for each of the tools in
-the cross toolset. This will help insure that there are no
-special requirements for a particular host.
-
-If the host and target processors are the same, then
-it may be possible to use the host development tools. An
-example of this scenario is using a SPARC based workstation
-to develop an RTEMS application for the SPARC processor. Although
-the native toolset is useable in this scenario, it is ultimately
-more desirable to build a toolset specifically for the embedded environment.
-
-Instructions for building a cross environment using the GNU
-tools is provided in the crossgcc FAQ available from ftp.cygnus.com
-in /pub/embedded/crossgcc. It is recommended that the user following
-these instructions.
-
-After the cross development toolset has been built
-and installed, it will be necessary to modify the environment of
-each RTEMS application developer to reflect at least the path of
-the newly installed cross development toolset.
-
-The documentation for the FSF GNU and open source tools is
-formatted using TeX. The RTEMS developers use TeX to
-format the manuals for their own use. This document does not
-contain instructions on the acquisition or installation of TeX
-and supporting tools.
-
-NOTE: For "UNIX" processors, the native compiler binary utilities
-should be used.
-
-Installing RTEMS
-================
-
-For instructions on building and installing RTEMS, please refer to
-the file README.configure in the source distribution.
