2015-06-15 TJI Initial revision

This file documents how to [re]build the SoC Camera project for your camera.
The project includes the FPGA, preloader, bootloader, linux kernel, drivers, application, libraries, and root filesystem for the camera.

PREREQUISITES
-------------
All required software tools (at the time of development) for this build are pre-installed on the virtual machine.

o Altera Quartus 14.1 with SocEDS 14.1 and DS-5 in /home/user/altera/14.1
o Ubuntu packages for development
- build-essential
- libtool
- rpm
- lib32z1
- lib32ncurses5
- lib32bz2-1.0
- lib32gcc1
- lib32stdc++6
- subversion
- git

o Additional packages
- vim-gtk
- nfs-kernel-server
- openssh-server
- minicom

o Configuration modifications
- default shell set to bash instead of dash

BUILDING
--------

1 - Retrieve the SocCamera source code from https://support.criticallink.com/redmine/projects/mityvision/files.
2 - untar the file in /home/user/projects/soc_camera.
- Assuming tar file is rel_0001.tgz
- cd /home/user/prjects/soc_camera
- tar xzf rel_0001.tgz
3 - cd to build directory
- cd rel_0001/build
4 - Run build script
- ./make_release.sh --config <config>
- Valid configs are CIS2521|CMV8000|CIS1910

The build script can take quite a while (up to an hour) to complete.
when complete, the newly built binaries will be in the output directory under the build directory.
- ubootenv.bin
- preloader-mkpimage.bin
- u-boot.img
- soc_camera...*.rpm (which contains the package to update the application, fpga, etc)
