parentRemoved targets and configurations that are no longer functional (diff)
Removed targets and configurations that are no longer functional
and not likely to become so. Comments on each configuration are below. + Force CPU386 - This BSP was developed as part of the initial port of RTEMS to the i386. This board has been unavailable for a long time now. + GO32 - This BSP and some CPU code supported djgpp v1.x. This version is now quite old. No one has stepped forward to update the code to v2.x which may be technically impossible anyway. More importantly, go32 has been superceded by the pc386 BSP.

-# $Id$
-The RTEMS build procedure was designed with the capabilitiies of a
-typical UNIX computer in mind. Making this procedure work under MS-DOS
-is not that difficult but requires that MS-DOS versions of a number
-of UNIX utilities be acquired and installed. For time being, the
-best advice which can be offered is:
- "This is a nasty question, since when I first set up the DOS machine
- (long before I acquired RTEMS) I ftp'd a bunch of different tool
- sets (all from SimTel), and then picked individual tools from each
- set that worked best for me. The djgpp tools are probably a good
- starting point, especially to get a working sed. Next the gnu tools
- in SimTel/msdos/gnuish, and then others. Sorry I can't give you more
- specific names. The only real requirement for the tools is that
- they *must* accept redirection of command line arguments from a file
- using the '@' notation (i.e., "mkdir @/tmp/args" reads the argument
- list from file /tmp/args)."
-There is a special version (source and executable) of GNU make 3.71 for
-MS-DOS which minimizes the amount of memory used by recursive makes
-available on in the file:
-Many of the RTEMS specific utilities used in the build and installation
-are UNIX shell scripts. On a UNIX host, these are normally interpreted
-by the Bourne Again Shell (BASH) or the Korn Shell (ksh). Most of these
-scripts can be successfully executed with the following shell from the
-MS-DOS archives from Simtel.
-Please be sure to use the 16-bit version. The Simtel archives are
-available from as well as a number of mirror sites.
-go32 dumps the stack when a program seg-faults, and if this happens while
-on an alternate stack an infinite loop can ensue. Setting the environment
-variable GO32="core /tmp/core" will prevent more than 20 lines or
-so of stack information from being dumped after a crash, and the output
-will go to a file rather than the screen.
-The go32 debuggers get confused by the relocated stacks used by tasks,
-and tend to crash when variables are inspected.
-djgcc include files
-In general, we use RTEMS include files because these contain the proper
-declarations for the libc, and in particular, the stdio functions.
-When calling go32-specific functions it is necessary to include some
-djgpp include files, as well. Unfortunately, there are some disagreements
-between RTEMS and djgpp as to how certain functions and types are
-declared. In these cases, the RTEMS source have been modified to
-special-case the differences.
-* Pressing F12 will immediately abort the program.
-See lib/libbsp/i386/go32/console/inch.c.
-* lib/libbsp/i386/go32/timer uses the on-board timer chip by default,
-which has a resolution of about 1 microsecond. However, if executing
-on a Pentium processor you can use the on-chip 64-bit cycle counter,
-which counts at whatever clock rate your processor runs at. To enable
-this, set RTEMS_CPU_MODEL=pentium in make/custom/go32.cfg.
