Definitely, but I was asking, as I have Fedora always on my computer, 
but I'm always missing some variables.
SO I made myself some scripts, which start with a clean FEDORA, and 
install RTEMS, all other stuff I need (CAD/EDA/Shells/etc.)
Setup the CVS addresses, whatever.

I usually miss in the Quick/Getting started whatever, that RTEMS likes 
to have some variables set (PATH, TARGET, BSP, etc) which I'm now having 
in a RTEMS.env file.

Or is it obsolete by now ?
(Took a break from RTEMS, but I'm coming back ;-))

I LOVE remarks like the one above ;-)

If you know what you're doing, it's never fancy ;-)

Shell scripts which add components ?
