Osmocom provides binary packages for several flavors of Debian and Ubuntu GNU/Linux on a variety of architectures (i586, x86_64, armhf, armv7l). Unless you are a software developer interested in developing on Osmocom, it is recommended you use those packages instead of building from source.
For more details see Binary_Packages
Osmocom maintains a set of user manuals and VTY reference manuals whose latest versions can be found at http://ftp.osmocom.org/docs/latest/
If the manual for the program of your particular interest area is missing or you find it incomplete, we kindly ask you for your contribution in form of patches against http://git.osmocom.org/osmo-gsm-manuals/ (or, alternatively Funding)
