Raspberry-Pi Bare Metal Tutorial¶
The tutorial supports all RPi models, except:
- rpi3 (rpi3B+ is supported) because the ACT LED is not connected to an IO pin
The tutorial only supports a Linux host for compiling the tutorial code.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:BrianSidebotham/arm-tutorial-rpi.git cd arm-tutorial-rpi
In order to use the tutorial-supplied compiler:
Get the RPI Firmware that will be required for compiled SD Card images:
NOTE: This tutorial also used to be tested on Windows, but as I don't have any Windows installs available any more, or indeed the time available to test everything under Windows it's dropped off the list.
Get reading the tutorial. Have fun, and remember to experiment!
The tutorial has a few dependencies which you might want to install before you get started:
- cmake (Used for configuring Makefiles)
- mtools (Tools for dealing with file-based FAT32 systems)
