Not exactly sure what you mean.  Fortunately, given the fact my computer
is a few weeks old, I do know how to answer your question.  The Cygwin
environment was installed by the Xilinx EDK installation procedure, so
it was "a fresh Cygwin", though not necessarily what you would get if
you went to  I'm sure that answers your question, right?

Yes, covers
this, plus installation of the tools and RTEMS itself.  I'm fairly sure
I documented exactly what I did, except for two exceptions.  The first
is an over-looked (on my part) patch for GDB that doesn't affect me (a
PowerPC user) anyway.  I'm pretty sure what I documented on that patch
is correct, though of course not tested.  I certainly would hope any
errors or "rookie mistakes" on my part would be corrected by the RTEMS
community, and I certainly welcome feedback!

Good idea - if it bugs me enough to warrant it, I certainly will look
into it...

Thanks for the feedback, Chris!

Update - the .exe files are indeed PowerPC elf files (Thanks Pete!)
