Building script

To build Phoenix-RTOS system image script is used. The simplest way to build the image is the following command.

TARGET=ia32-generic phoenix-rtos-build/ all

As you can see there can be other arguments like all.

You can also use the clean argument to clean last build artifacts.

TARGET=ia32-generic phoenix-rtos-build/ clean all

When you want to compile only the new changes and save time you don't have to use it.

The all argument specifies that all system components for a given target should be compiled (excluding tests). The available components are listed below:

  • fs - filesystem image,

  • core - Phoenix-RTOS core, i.e. kernel and other necessary components,

  • test - tests,

  • ports - phoenix-rtos-ports applications,

  • project - project specific part (user applications),

  • image - system image to be loaded to the target,

For example, in ia32-generic target all means core fs image project ports.
For the other targets all can be different components configurations.
You can also choose what components do you want to build, for example the following command will build a system image without test and ports components. The ports component compiling process can take a while. If you need to build the system image quickly, you can use the command above.

TARGET=ia32-generic phoenix-rtos-build/ core fs image project test

For ia32-generic target, running the system in a separate window isn't the only option. There is the possibility to run it in a terminal, in that case, you have to set a few other variables.

TARGET=ia32-generic CONSOLE=serial ./phoenix-rtos-build/ all

After the build completes, the disk image and all files needed to run it will be created and placed in the _boot directory.
