L4 embedded + Wombat Linux in 3 simple steps, Magic?

No theres no magic, thank god I use debian, here I will describe how to get your wombat up&running within few commands:

First you have to get the required software + plus some other useful things:

apt-get remove --purge gcc g++
apt-get install gcc-3.3 g++-3.3
apt-get install python
apt-get install scons
apt-get install sudo
apt-get install qemu
apt-get install qemuctl
vgabios qemu-launcher kqemu-common
apt-get install kqemu-modules-
apt-get install bazaar

WARNING gcc-3.3 and g++-3.3 are required!

Now that we have what we need, we will get the last version of iguana-devel into some particular directory, check out this link for further explanation.

mkdir wombat-rep
cd wombat-rep
baz register-archive
baz get
cd iguana-project--devel--1.2--version-0/
baz build-config packages

Now go get your self something to eat!!

scons machine=pc99 simulate
tools/ machine=pc99 simulate

Results on the build folder, and if getting hands dirty is wanted, there's a doc folder with iguana framework information.

That's it!! Special thanks to the ERTOS NICTA group for making this as simple as it is!!!
