15-410 Project 1 Hand-in

  1. Your files should be placed in your p1 directory, not somewhere else, such as hw1. If you haven't stored files in your AFS volume yet, please refer to About your 15-410 AFS Space for help if you run into trouble. We are not responsible if you wait until 23:50 to try out your AFS volume and run into trouble.

  2. Please do not add levels of indirection when turning in your files. For example, do not place your kernel.c in p1/proj1/kernel.c or turn in p1/my_project_one.tar. Please use the most straightforward arrangement, i.e., p1/kernel.c.

  3. When the deadline arrives, we will write-lock your hand-in directory. You will continue to be able to view the contents.

  4. To grade your work, we will overwrite 410test.c with our console-exerciser program and install a fresh disk image file. We will then do the moral equivalent of make clean and make afs-dual and grade your dual-boot image. You should make sure that make afs-dual builds kernel and 410test properly and installs them into the disk image (we may deduct points if your assignment doesn't build "out of the box"). See Grading Makefile and Dual Images for more information. Recall that, no matter what flavor of machine you used to prepare your assignment, it must build and run on Andrew cluster Linux machines.

  5. You must also make sure that make html_doc and make print do the right thing.

  6. Your deliverables are:

    • Various .c and .s files (yes, including kernel.c).
    • .h files (located in inc/).
    • README.dox
    • Makefile
    • Any *.mk files -- since you needed to configure them for your project to build/print/etc., if you don't turn them in, your project won't build/print/etc....

    Please do not include:

    • .o files
    • executable files such as kernel, 410test
    • .img files

    Things not mentioned on either list above (the lib/ directory,, etc.) are at your discretion. You can assume that if we gave them to you once we won't mind giving them to you again.

  7. If you need to take a late day for Project 1 (you shouldn't!), use the Late Day Registration Page, by roughly 00:30. Assuming your message is received, the next morning somebody will unlock your hand-in directory so you can again save your work. Please note that the auto-response may appear like a delivery failure notice to some mail user agents; you will need to look at the "error details" inside. Of course, your request must be in accordance with the policy published in the syllabus.
