Running and using Fiasco and L4Re components

  • Systems to use
    • hardware requirements
    • virtual machines
      • QEmu
      • Fiasco-UX
      • VMware
      • Virtualbox
    • Boot from CD
    • Boot from TFTP server
  • serial console
  • Booting
    • GRUB
    • Images
      • Call 'make help' in the l4/ root directory to get a listing of possible image generation targets
      • See l4/conf/Makeconf.boot.example for more information on customization
      • u-boot:
        • Call 'make uimage E=entry' to generate an uImage
        • Load into u-boot (tftpboot, usb-stick, flash, ...)
        • bootm ....
      • ELF images: make elfimage E=name
        • loadable with any loader that understand ELF (including GRUB, Lauterbach, ARM RVDS, QEmu)
      • Raw images: make rawimage E=name
        • copy into RAM at the start address, set PC to start address and run
        • On ARM the images relocate itself to their linked address, i.e. they can be put anywhere in RAM (copying them to the right place will make booting faster of course).
    • Qemu
      • Go to obj-dir root
      • Call 'make qemu E=entry'
      • For Qemu customization (esp. on ARM) see l4/conf/Makeconf.boot.example and add options to your l4/conf/Makeconf.boot
    • Virtualbox
      • Go to obj-dir root
      • Call 'make vbox E=entry'
      • You need a configuration virtual machine in vbox for that to work. Check l4/conf/Makeconf.boot.example to see how to configuration vbox specifics.
    • You may omit the E=entry which will present you a menu to choose the entry to generate/start from.
