gem5 ARM Bare-Metal Example

This git repository shows a simple example for an ARM Bare-Metal implementation with gem5. It can be used as a starting point for bare metal projects with this simulator. For more information on gem5 please look at: gem5.org.

To install the toolchain on Mac OSX you can yous macports:

    sudo port install arm-none-eabi-gcc
    sudo port install arm-none-eabi-gdb

or Homebrew:

    brew tap PX4/homebrew-px4
    brew update
    brew install gcc-arm-none-eabi

on Linux based systems (e.g. Debian):

    apt-get install gcc-arm-none-eabi

To compile the example software set a proper path to you bare metal toolchain in the Makefile.

    make

To run the software in gem5 do the following steps:

    export M5_PATH="/path/to/gem5.bare-metal/"

For the simple example:

    ./build/ARM/gem5.opt \
    ./configs/example/fs.py \
    --bare-metal \
    --disk-image=/path/to/gem5.bare-metal/common/fake.iso \
    --kernel=/path/to/gem5.bare-metal/simple/main.elf \
    --machine-type=RealView_PBX \
    --dtb-filename=none \
    --mem-size=256MB

For the interrupt example:

    ./build/ARM/gem5.opt \
    ./configs/example/fs.py \
    --bare-metal \
    --disk-image=/path/to/gem5.bare-metal/common/fake.iso \
    --kernel=/path/to/gem5.bare-metal/interrupt/main.elf \
    --machine-type=RealView_PBX \
    --dtb-filename=none \
    --mem-size=256MB
