15-410 Project 1 Hand-in
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.
Please do not add levels of indirection when
turning in your files. For example, do not place your
game_kern_main.c in p1/proj1/kern/game_kern_main.c or
turn in p1/my_project_one.tar. Please use the most
straightforward arrangement, i.e., p1/kern/game_kern_main.c.
When the deadline arrives, we will write-lock your hand-in directory.
You will continue to be able to view the contents.
When we grade your work, we will overwrite files which are not
in kern/ with a mixture of the files which update.sh installed
for you. We will then add and modify some files. This means
that you must confine your modifications to
files located in kern/, with the exception of config.mk.
You should make sure you have followed all the directions in
config.mk carefully, and that make clean followed
by make will build both the game and the tester
properly (we may deduct points if your assignment
doesn't build "out of the box"). Please make veryclean
in your handin directory after turning in your files--the
AFS space you save will be your own!
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
You must also make sure that make html_doc and
make print do the right thing.
Your deliverables are:
- Various .c and .S files (located in kern/).
- .h files (located in kern/inc/).
- 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 game, 410test
- .img files
Things not mentioned on either list above (the 410kern/ 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
You can roughly simulate how we will build your code as follows:
- % cd /afs/cs.cmu.edu/academic/class/15410-f14/usr/$USER/p1
- % make clean
- % make update
- % make
- % make html_doc
- % make veryclean
- % du -sk .
The "du" step reports the disk space usage of
the directory you're in, in kilobytes. Anything over 2048 kilobytes
for Project 1 probably means you're turning in something unnecessary.
The final "make veryclean" should leave things in a nice
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.
Of course, your request must be in accordance with the
policy published in the syllabus.
