thanks for answering me,
i still have some quetion...
1. i have got l4linux-2.6-env, fiasco and l4linux-2.6 from svn.
my directory contains following sub-directory now :
l4linux-2.6/ l4/ dice/ tools/ kernel/
after reading http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/L4/LinuxOnL4/build-2.6.shtml
i know the sequence of building L4Linux now.
but...if i want to cross compile L4Linux for ARM, can i just add
every "make" step in
if not, can you show me how to do that more lucid
( i can't find many information about cross-compile
L4Linux or any documents from Internet )
2. as you metioned above, i should adapt the configuration of fiasco
to my target platform,
but... (1) when do i do this? before make anything?
(2) how to config fiasco? i know there is a step "make config
but i am not sure. are there any documents or tutorial web page?
thank you for answering me again
