Is there a link somewhere pointing you to this page?

What went wrong? Maybe try the User Manual's Quick Start quide and lets 
see if things work for you.

I have update the wiki page you referenced to point to the newer User 
Manual. Please have a look at the User Manual and lets see if that helps 
you get a suitable ecosystem up and running.

I have also changed the TBR (To Be [Review/Removed]) Quick Start page to 
reference the ERC32 BSP because Joel removed the SIS BSP from the master 
branch in the RTEMS git repo.

Let us know how you go. Any feedback from new users getting RTEMS up and 
running is really important.
