NAME
sb2-init - initialize a target for scratchbox2 SYNOPSIS
sb2-init [OPTION]... [TARGETNAME] [COMPILER[:SPECS]] [SECONDARY_COMPILER...] DESCRIPTION
sb2-init initializes a target for scratchbox2. If no options or other parameters are given, already initialized targets are listed. A scratchbox2 target is simply a light-weight, symbolic name for a configuration set. A target does not contain anything that is active, like running processes; hence a user never "works inside a target". Instead, sessions are used for all active operations. Sessions are created by the sb2 command. sb2-init is expected to be run in the directory you want to use as the target root filesystem. TARGETNAME is the name of the target to initialize. If it refers to an existing target, then the target is re-initialized. Otherwise a new one is created. COMPILER is full path to a cross-compiler (gcc), of the form $HOME/arm-2006q3/bin/arm-linux-gcc. An optional SPECS parameter is path to the compiler specs file. If more than one compiler is specified, additional compilers are available by version number (e.g. if the primary is known as "gcc" and "gcc-4.1", the secondary may be "gcc-3.4", etc) Note that the compiler is usually used during the target creation process to determine CPU architecture of the target system. OPTIONS
-c "command" specify cpu transparency command, for example: "qemu-arm", "sbrsh" or "qemu-arm -R 256M". CPU transparency method is the program which is used to execute foreign binaries, that the host computer can not execute directly. -p "command" specify cpu transparency command for staticly linked native binaries. -r [hostname] generate sbrsh config using remote device address -l [hostname] NFS server/localhost address seen by remote device -d set target as default scratchbox2 target (default target can also be set later with the sb2-config command) -m [mapping_mode] use mapping_mode as default. Default for this is "simple" -h Print help. -n don't build libtool for the target -N don't generate localization files for the target -s skip checks for target root's /usr/include etc. -t [tools_dir] set directory containing the build tools distribution -C "options" add extra options for the compiler, for example: -C "-fgnu89-inline" -A arch manually override target architecture -M arch manually override machine name (see uname(2)). This defaults to the target architecture (see option -A) -v display version EXAMPLES
mkdir $HOME/buildroot cd $HOME/buildroot [fetch a rootfs from somewhere and extract it here] sb2-init -c qemu-arm TARGET /path/to/cross-compiler/bin/arm-linux-gcc FILES

NAME
sb2-session - manage scratchbox2 sessions SYNOPSIS
sb2-session [COMMAND [PARAMS]] DESCRIPTION
sb2-session is used to create attachable scratchbox2 sessions. You can save session even when you haven't done '-S session' during sb2 startup. Note that you can give parameters to attach command which are passed verbatim to sb2. If there is only one session to attach, it is selected automatically. If no command is given, help text is printed. COMMANDS
help shows help text save saves current session list lists detached sb2 sessions delete SESSION deletes given session attach [SESSION [PARAMS]] attaches to a given session setenv VARIABLE VALUE store a value for an environment variable showenv show stored environment variables EXAMPLES
Basic usage is: [SB2 .. ] $ sb2-session save # save session [SB2 .. ] $ ^D # exit Later we can then attach to this session: % sb2-session attach If there are more than one saved session, then: % sb2-session list session.XXXX TARGET_ARM My Comment session.YYYY TARGET_ARM My Comment 2 session.ZZZZ TARGET_MIPS % sb2-session attach session.YYYY Here we pass '-eR' to sb2 and we only have one saved session: % sb2-session attach -- -eR '--' marks end of parameter list for sb2-session. setenv VARIABLE VALUE can be used to add environment variables, that will become active when a saved session is later taken into use (either by sb2-session attach or by sb2 -J). setenv VARIABLE VALUE does not change environment of sessions that are already active. showenv lists environment variable settings which have been stored with this tool. It does not show environment variables from other sources. SEE ALSO
