OpenBMC Starting Point

I have a supermicro X9 with ast2400 BMC chip. How would we go about
installing it? openBMC onto it? We currently have a fresh install of Ubuntu
LTS on it, and nothing else.
In terms of the development virtual machine. I keep running into an issue
when trying to wget the sdk.
Specifically, this line: wget
After running that inside the romulus emulator, it runs out of space and
won't complete the download. Does this mean I need to either increase the
storage for the romulus, or am I simply installing it in the wrong place,
and instead need to wget that into the regular VM?
Apologies for all the questions, I am doing as much research as I can, and
this mailing list seems to be the largest wealth of knowledge I have
