Fix a security hole in shell binaries:
[mirror_edk2.git] / EdkShellPkg / ReadMe.txt
1 This is EDK style package and the following steps can help to build the package:
2 1. Download the newly EDK Shell project from the following URL and unzip it to
3 a local directory in workspace, for example, $(WORKSPACE)\Shell:
6 Alternatively, the EDK Shell source directory can be retrieved from the following SVN address:
8 SVN Revision r33 corresponds to development snapshot.
10 2. Update EDK_SHELL_DIR macro in the [Defines] section in EdkShellPkg.dsc to point to
11 the directory containing the EDK Shell source directory, e.g. $(WORKSPACE)\Shell.
13 3. The EDK II style DSC file is used to validate build EDK Shell source & EDK compatibility package and can generate the binaries in EdkShellBinPkg.
14 To use this file, execute the following command under workspace to build EDK Shell source:
15 build -a IA32 -a X64 -a IPF -p EdkShellPkg\EdkShellPkg.dsc
17 4. If you need to compile for GCC or ARM you will need to apply ShellR33.patch.
18 cd $(WORKSPACE)/Shell and execute patch -p1 < $(WORKSPACE)/EdkShellPkg/ShellR33.patch.
19 If you are using a case sensative file system there are a few case bugs that patch
20 would not fix. Just fix the case of the file to match its usage and you should be
21 able to compile.
