BSP Installation Notes for Momentic 6.4 BSPs#
This guide is a quick overview on how to install and get started with 6.4 style BSPs under Momentics 6.4.0. For compelete infomation please refer to the Momentics 6.4.0 User Guide (Under development)
Importing BSPs in the IDE#
Before working with a BSP in the IDE, you must first import it. When you import the BSP source, the IDE creates a System Builder project.
To import the BSP source code:
All the projects will be created and the sources brought from the archive. You'll then be asked if you want to build all the projects you've imported.
If you answer Yes, the IDE will start the build process. If you decide to build at a later time, you can do a Rebuild All from the main Project menu when you're ready to build.
For more information, see the IDE User's Guide in your documentation set. (Within the IDE itself, go to:Help - Help Contents - QNX Documentation Roadmap).
Building BSPs on the Command Line#
To build a BSP on the command line simply unzip the archive in the desired location. Note that the zip files lack a root directory, so it is best to create a working directory first.
Here is an example, assuming the BSP archive was downloaded to ~/Download
cd ~/sand mkdir bsp_x86_bios_trunk cd bsp_x86_bios_trunk unzip ~/Download/bsp_x86_bios_trunk.zip
With 6.4 BSPs there is no need to run setupbsp, or to source setenv.sh, simply change into the root directory and run make:
cd ~/bsp_x86_bios_trunk make
Where to go From Here#
Refer to the BSP specific release notes on the steps required to get the image running on the board.
