This document demonstrates various techniques using the Mentor Embedded Sourcery CodeBench IDE to build a Linux kernel and kernel modules. This paper also demonstrates how to use Sourcery CodeBench to assist in board bring-up and navigate around a large, complex project such as the Linux kernel. The emphasis is on maximizing the time spent in a friendly desktop UI, making this an ideal environment for developers who are more comfortable using an IDE rather than low-level, command-line tools and kernel build procedures.
