nix-shell
cd src
gateware/zc706.py -g ../build/gateware -v <variant> # build gateware
make GWARGS="-v <variant>" <runtime/satman> # build firmware
make GWARGS="-V <variant>" <runtime/satman> # build firmware
cd ..
./remote_run.sh -i
```
Notes:
- This is developed with Nixpkgs 21.05, and the ``nixbld.m-labs.hk`` binary substituter can also be used here (see the ARTIQ manual for the public key and instructions).
- This is developed with Nixpkgs 21.05[^1], and the ``nixbld.m-labs.hk`` binary substituter can also be used here (see the ARTIQ manual for the public key and instructions).
- The impure build process is also compatible with non-Nix systems.
- When calling make, you need to specify both the variant and firmware type.
- Firmware type must be either ``runtime`` for DRTIO-less or DRTIO master variants, or ``satman`` for DRTIO satellite.
- If the board is connected to the local machine, use the ``local_run.sh`` script.
- To update ``zynq-rs``, update the cargo files as per usual for Rust projects, but also keep ``zynq-rs.nix`` in sync.
