Tizen RT Getting Started

Installing the GNU ARM Toolchain

※ Only the 4.9.2 and 4.9.3 versions are currently supported and tested.

  1. Get the built-in binaries and libraries (gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_9-2015q3-20150921-linux.tar) from https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/4.9/4.9-2015-q3-update.
  2. Untar the gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_9-2015q3-20150921-linux.tar file and export the path:

    export PATH=/home/xyz/currentwork/workcommon/toolchain/armgcc492/bin:$PATH

    ※ The above command is an example only - do not copy-paste it directly. If you have multiple toolchains, place the new path in front of $PATH.

In Ubuntu 13.10 and higher, if you cannot execute 32-bit packages, use the following command:

sudo apt-get install -y lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

Getting Source Codes from Git

Run the following commands:

$ git clone ssh://<Your ID>@review.tizen.org:29418/rtos/tinyara

$ cd tinyara



The TINYARA_BASEDIR environment variable is meant for reference and is used later.

※ To get the source codes from GitHub, use the following command instead of git clone ssh://...:

$ git clone https://github.com/Samsung/TinyAra.git

Building Tizen RT

  1. Configure the build from the $TINYARA_BASEDIR/os/tools directory:

    $ ./configure.sh <board>/<configuration_set>

    For list of supported boards and configuration sets, see Appendix A.

    For example: ./configure.sh sidk_s5jt200/hello_with_tash

    The command copies the configuration set for the particular board into the $TINYARA_BASEDIR/os directory. The configuration can be modified through the make menuconfig command from the $TINYARA_BASEDIR/os directory.

  2. Initiate the build from the $TINYARA_BASEDIR/os directory:

    $ make

    The built binaries are located in the $TINYARA_BASEDIR/build/output/bin directory.

Appendix A


Tizen RT currently supports 1 board, called sidk_s5jt200 (Samsung IoT Development Kit for S5JT200 chipset).
This board is not yet available in public markets. sidk_s5jt200 and other boards for Tizen RT will be coming soon.

Configuration Sets

There are 3 configuration sets for sidk_s5jt200:

  • tc for running unit test cases
  • kernel_sample for running kernel functions
  • hello_with_tash for running a hello example
You can modify the configuration by using the menuconfig tool on the os folder, but all configuration combinations are not fully tested yet.
The IPv4 network stack based on LWIP is included, but Wi-Fi-related code, such as wpa_supplicant, is not included.
Wi-Fi will be added in 2017.
