168 Installation script has an option for advanced or resumed installation.
Advanced mode:
the script only downloads and installs the required tools. Dependency libraries and tools are checked during individual tool compilation. Furthermore, the install directory is not added to the system PATH. You have to do it yourself. Libusb, libftdi and Icarus Verilog are supposed to be installed by the user.
Resumed mode:
the script checks if the dependency libraries and tools are installed before doing anything. It also adds the installation directory to the system PATH variable for bash shells on HOME/.bashrc. Libusb, libftdi and Icarus Verilog are automatically installed for you.

Non standard configuration scripts that require or1200_defines.v to be tweaked will ask before doing so and backup the correspondent files.

158 Adding de2_115_board port, thanks to Richard Hasha.

Support to JSP (JTAG Serial Port) working well. Also provided by Richard Hasha.

Different interconnect configurations per board are not straightforward on MinSoC. New added modules or definitions for addresses have to be carried over to other boards. Furthermore, extra modules can be shared among all projects. Thus, it is better to have this centralized:
-Removing interconnect configuration from minsoc_defines.v. There is an interconnect_defines.v file on rtl/verilog. The software counterpart is interconnect.h on sw/drivers.

Including a jsp firmware. It is basically the uart firmware but using JSP instead. Added to all board configure scripts to be compiled on configuration.

prj/srcs extended to include jsp and interconnec_defines.v.

spartan3e_starter_kit_eth lost UART (does not fit) and uses JSP instead now.

149 Merging differences of release candidate 1.0 revision 140:148 with trunk. rfajardo 3378d 20h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
144 Updating configure scripts. Calling make into the right directories now. rfajardo 3384d 19h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
142 Updating
1) we don't patch the trunk version.
2) it is better to re-compile the firmwares on reconfiguration. So compiling firmwares went to configure scripts instead.

backend/xxx/configure: compiling firmwares here now.
rfajardo 3384d 19h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
141 Merging with rc-1.0 revision 140. I doubt rc-1.0 will still change much in the last days. rfajardo 3384d 19h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
105 Updating configure scripts to copy Windows synthesis launch script setup.bat from either minsoc/syn/altera or minsoc/syn/xilinx to minsoc/syn. rfajardo 3411d 21h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
97 As proposed by Javier Almansa automatically generated project files for simulation and synthesis are out of revision control. Instead, the backend configure scripts run the prj/Makefile now to generate the project files prior to configuration of SoC for a specific board. rfajardo 3455d 21h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
92 backend/spartan3e_starter_kit*: or1200_defines.v file was outdated and hindering synthesis. Probably it would be best if we used a patching system here. But for now, I copied the new files and made the necessary changes to fit the system into the target boards. rfajardo 3460d 20h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
88 Project structure, Xilinx Makefiles and simulation working. rfajardo 3461d 13h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
87 Synchronizing scripts to behave exactly the same. rfajardo 3461d 14h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
86 Updating configure script messages. rfajardo 3461d 14h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
85 Central project definition under prj. Synthesis and simulation take their project files from here. rfajardo 3461d 14h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
80 Establishing a better Makefile system for firmwares. rfajardo 3479d 19h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
70 Including a global timescale under minsoc/rtl/verilog to control simulation. It is under the implementation because the implementation files include it.

Removing timescale definition of minsoc_bench_defines.v files.

Creating a modelsim simulation directory. Everything is working under Linux. For Windows, has to be changed:
-pli ../../bench/verilog/vpi/
-pli ../../bench/verilog/vpi/jp-io-vpi.dll

These files have to be compiled/copied from minsoc/rtl/verilog/adv_debug_sys/Software/adv_jtag_bridge/sim_lib/modelsim_platform to minsoc/bench/verilog/vpi.
rfajardo 3580d 20h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
69 backend update:
Both files should now be under minsoc/backend to proper system functionality.
backend subdirectories have been given those files. Configure script updated accordingly.

They are searched there from system scripts and Makefiles.
-sim/bin/minsoc_verilog_files.txt has the files for Icarus Verilog, minsoc_bench_defines.v is now referenced from backend directory.
-sw/support/ now references to inside backend.

-It is the system configuration for Spartan 3E Starter Kit with Ethernet.
rfajardo 3585d 12h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
66 spartan3e_starter_kit requires special configuration of or1200_r3.

For that, configure script was specially adapted and that is reported on script execution.

For release-1.0 of MinSoC this should not be required, because or1200_r1 already has the
required configuration.
rfajardo 3587d 16h /minsoc/trunk/backend/spartan3e_starter_kit/
64 firmware makefiles:
-every firmware makefile has now complete dependency. This also includes dependency on files under minsoc/backend (target specific files). That means, that if some target specific header changes, the support library dependent on it will be compiled. That will always happen, even if you compile the uart firmware. In other words, if you want to use uart firmware, you can always simply compile uart by issuing make all. If anything has changed, backend files, support library, drivers, it will update everything for you.
-TODO: dependency can be automatic created by using make together with gcc. Use it instead of declaring all dependencies manually.

Makefile system for synthesis:
-the dependency for every implementation step has been checked and is working fine.
-Makefile plus support files have been moved to minsoc/syn/src
-make usage is still under syn through files generated by backend bashscripts
-files under backend are target specific files used for the system to work
-firmware compilation
-system simulation
-system implementation
-This directory is populated by visiting one of its subdirectories and typing ./configure

-working on FPGA

-has to be tested

-missing files have to be copied and adapted, configure script has to be copied and adapted

-include files necessary for firmware compilation and system configuration
-it does not include files for synthesis and is not synthesizable
