To install the development chain under GNU/Linux from the RPM packages, you must use the rpm tool and you must be root (super-user) for this. Then, type:

     rpm -i binutils-68hc1x-2.12.1-2.1.1.i586.rpm
     rpm -i gdb-68hc1x-5.2.1-2.1.1.i586.rpm
     rpm -i gcc-68hc1x-3.0.4-2.1.1.i586.rpm
     rpm -i newlib-68hc1x-1.10.0-2.1.1.i586.rpm

The development chain is installed in the /usr/bin and in /usr/m6811-elf directories. The installation does not conflict with your native compiler: binaries installed in /usr/bin are prefixed with m6811-elf-.

Note that if you have installed a previous version of these packages (1.9d, 1.0, 0.9c, 0.9b or 0.9a), you should remove them before installing a new version (2.1.1).

You can also use kpackage or gnorpm. For this, save the rpm packages in the following directory: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i586. Start your preferred package manager and select the Install options. You can view the installed packages by looking at the Packages->Development->68HC1x folder. Make sure to Uninstall the binutils, gcc and gdb before installing a new version.

The binary packages contain the complete HTML documentation about Gcc, the Binutils and Gdb. The following index file can be used as the entry point of all this documentation:
