Hi Ritesh,

We appreciate your interest in RTEMS!
As you are familiar with ARM, would you be more interested in starting with the ARM port?

Are you using the VM, pre-built tools, or building your own tool set?... There are different guidelines for each.
Are you using minGW, Fedora, Ubuntu, or another type of host?

Subject: Improvements to SMP support

Hello Everyone,

I came to know about RTEMS open project list and am interested to work on SMP support improvements.
Regrading this I aso had chat with Jennifer, but due to no familiarity with RTMES platform, I am finding difficult to start with.

So, if one can please give me a proper guideline as to where to start from.

I had gone through quick installation, but too many TARGETS and bsp is confusing me, as to what should I start with for SMP improvement?
I have a git repo of latest HEAD.
Tried installing i386-rtems-gcc4.11 but, it is failing with foll error:
checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: in `/home/xunil/Downloads/b-gcc_2/i386-rtems4.11/libgcc':
configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile

I have quite a good familiarity on ARM SMP platforms and have developed features for DMA driver on ARM A9. Waiting for positive response along with some guideline.
