In this chapter we describe how to copy the GCC-1750 toolset, libraries and on-line documentation from the CD-ROM to your computers local disk drive. You may also install GCC-1750 on a remote disk drive that you access over a network.
To install on GNU/Linux, you will need to use the gunzip and tar utilities. The GNU/Linux installation files are compressed using the GNU gzip program; if you have the GNU version of tar then you can uncompress and install the files in one step.
To install on Sun/Solaris you will use the pkgadd program to install the uncompressed Solaris-format package.
Before installing GCC-1750, take a few minutes to be sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements, and that the distribution is complete.
GCC-1750 requires one of the following system configurations:
A Sun SPARC Computer running the Solaris operating system, Version 2.5 or above.
An IBM Personal Computer or 100-percent compatible running Caldera OpenLinux version 1.2 or above.
An IBM Personal Computer or 100-percent compatible running Microsoft Windows 95 or above.
If you intend to work with a remote target computer, then you will also need an RS-232 serial interface for down-loading and on-line debugging. We recommend a second serial interface for use as a target computer console.
You will require write access to directories that may be under the control of your system administrator. You should check you have the necessary privilege to create files and directories under /opt.
The GCC-1750 CD-ROM contains the installation files, on-line documentation, examples, benchmarks, tests and all the source code.
The CD-ROM top-level directories are as follows:
|/mnt/cdrom/benchmarks/||Various benchmark programs|
|/mnt/cdrom/contrib/||Unsupported third-party software|
|/mnt/cdrom/demo/||The tcdemo demonstration program|
|/mnt/cdrom/dist/||The binary distribution files|
|/mnt/cdrom/examples/||Source code examples|
|/mnt/cdrom/html/||On-line user manuals|
|/mnt/cdrom/manuals/||Printable user manuals|
|/mnt/cdrom/src/||The GCC-1750 source code|
