After you add your Catalog item to the OS design, you can verify that the Catalog item appears in your OS design and build the modified OS design.

To build the OS design

  1. From the Platform Builder Build OS menu, choose Set Active Configuration, select a configuration for your OS design, and then choose OK.
  2. From the Platform menu, choose Settings and make sure the configuration is selected in the Configuration list.
  3. Choose the Build Options tab and verify that the following check boxes are selected:
    • Enable CE Target Control Support (SYSGEN_SHELL=1)

      Enabling CE Target Control Support for your OS design enables target control support for your OS design and enables kernel independent transport layer (KITL). For more information, see Target Control Service.

    • Enable Eboot Space in Memory (IMGEBOOT=1)

      Selecting this reserves space in the Config.bib file for your OS design, enabling the boot loader to save data that your OS can read at boot time.

    • Enable Full Kernel Mode (no IMGNOTALLKMODE=1)

      Enabling full kernel-mode for your OS design increases system performance in the run-time image. For more information, see Full-Kernel Mode

    • Run-Time Image Can be Larger than 32 MB (IMGRAM64=1)

      Enabling the run-time image to be larger than 32 MB allows you to have larger run-time images. If your final run-time image requires more than 32 MB of space, the build process might not successfully complete.

  4. Save your changes and close the dialog box by choosing OK.
  5. From the Build OS menu, verify that the following are selected:
    • Copy Files to Release Directory After Build
    • Make Run-Time Image After Build
  6. From the Build OS menu, choose Build and Sysgen.

    It can take up to 20 minutes to build the run-time image.

    You can observe the build process in Platform Builder. The progress of the build process is displayed on the Build tab of the Output window.

    When the build is complete, you see the following message: MyOSDesign - 0 error(s), XX warning(s).

  7. After you build the run-time image, verify that the Catalog item appears in the OS design by doing the following:
    1. In the Workspace window, choose the OSDesignView tab.
    2. Navigate the tree view and verify that MyCatalogItem appears in your OS design.

You have completed this tutorial and successfully created a Catalog item and added the item to the OS design.
