How To Guide: Building a Linux Kernel Using Sourcery CodeBench

Version 2

    This document demonstrates various techniques using the Mentor® Embedded  Sourcery™ CodeBench IDE to build a Linux® kernel and kernel modules.  This paper also demonstrates how to use Sourcery CodeBench to assist in  board bring-up and navigate around a large, complex project such as the  Linux kernel. The emphasis is on maximizing the time spent in a friendly  desktop UI, making this an ideal environment for developers who are  more comfortable using an IDE rather than low-level, command-line tools  and kernel build procedures.
