The instructions for those are on Chris' mingw page

…but, download the bz2 file from those directories that don't have -src in their names. Then

cd /c
tar xvfj thenameofyourfile.bz2

And it will extract the pieces into the proper places.

A darn good question, and one that has been much on my mind.  Ralf?

Once you get all of the appropriate pieces in place, it still won't compile according to the instructions. You have to do a


in the directory that has the RTEMS source. A side effect of this is that the "configure" script will be created. Only then can you use the "configure" command.

That's as far as I got. I am having major issues with the "make" step not knowing how to make "all".
