Quick start guide

To start using Miosix you need a patched version of the GCC compiler to support the Miosix thread model and git to download the kernel sources. Optionally you can also use an IDE to simplify code development, and an in-circuit debugger to speed up bug fixing.

Changes with respect to Miosix 1.x

A word of warning if you are a long-time user of Miosix: please note that in Miosix 2.0 there were significant changes. First of all, Miosix 2.0 uses GCC 4.7.3 and is no longer compatible with the old GCC 4.5.2 used in Miosix 1.x, so you need to upgrade your compiler. Second, the preferred way to install the compiler is through a precompiled installer available for both Linux and Windows. If you want, though, you can still build the compiler from sources. Last, keep in mind that the compiler patches are still a work in progress. When doing a 'git pull' you may need to upgrade the compiler too.
