Installation instructions for Icarus Verilog

Setting up new debootstrap and chroot into it

Run the following if you wish to isolate the iverilog build from other software (reproducible builds) or use the schroot auto-preparation script here:;a=blob;f=mk-deb-chroot;hb=HEAD

export MY_CHROOT=/opt/chroot/iverilog
mkdir $MY_CHROOT
debootstrap stable $MY_CHROOT
mount -t proc proc $MY_CHROOT/proc
mount -t sysfs sysfs $MY_CHROOT/sys
mount -t devpts devpts $MY_CHROOT/dev/pts/
chroot $MY_CHROOT /bin/bash

The dev-env-setup chroot script is a little more sophisticated than the above
