I'm working on setting up a XVME-661 (Pentium III 700 MHz;
256 MB RAM PC on a VME board) to run EPICS/RTEMS applications (and learning my
way around both of those at the same time). I'm using RTEMS-4.10 and EPICS
3.14.12 in a mingw32 environment on a Windows 7 machine to build apps. I'm then
copying the applications to the VME system hard drive and using GRUB to boot
From what I've read of various getting started documents, it
seems like the normal approach is to have an RTEMS-based system get networking
information from a BOOTP server and then load application files from a TFTP
server. However, I'm not able to run either of those servers, and since I have
plenty of hard drive space on the VME system, I would like to able to load
complete applications from the local filesystem.
I have tried booting the rtemsTestHarness app, as well a test
app (generated using makeBaseApp), GRUB seems to able to load the application
just fine but then get hung up on an infinitely looping "BOOTP call
So I'm wondering if there's a simple way of either bypassing
the BOOTP while loading the application, or somehow breaking out of that
infinite loop and continuing to load the application.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
