Release Notes

Installing the cross compiler

1. First install cygwin ( bash, make and nasm are also required to compile the kernel but not required to use this cross compiler).
2. Create a directory called cross in c:\cygwin\usr\
3. Copy the extracted files to this directory
4. Open the file called c:\cygwin\etc\profile using your favorite text editor. I would recommend open with Visual Studio.
5. Search for PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:$PATH and add /usr/cross/bin
It should look somewhat like PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/cross/bin/:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:$PATH
This allows to use i586-elf-gcc or i586-elf-g++ from anywhere in the bash shell.

Note: I'm using c:\cygwin as the default install directory.
