  1. Ubuntu is the distribution most commonly used internally, other distributions should work, but are unknown.
  2. Gcc 3.3 and Gcc 3.4 are the only versions known to work. One of them should be /usr/bin/gcc-3.3 or /usr/bin/gcc-3.4
  3. /bin/sh should be a symlink to /bin/bash.
  4. You must have a username and password from us to download the build environment.


  1. download ubuntu and make CD
  2. Just do the default installation
  3. After installation, reboot and login, open a terminal and run the following
  4. sudo apt-get upgrade
  5. sudo apt-get install patch gcc-3.4 cvs bison flex
  6. sudo rm /bin/sh
  7. sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
  8. export CVSROOT=""
  9. cvs login
  10. cvs co rbe
  11. cd rbe
  12. make crosscomp
The build environment is now setup, you will find gcc, etc in crosscomp/gcc-3.2.3-glibc-2.2.2/i686-unknown-linux-gnu/i686-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/. Use those tools to build.
