C/C++ GCC Cross Compiler support missing

Postby FXCoder » Mon Jun 01, 2020 11:23 am

Hi.
A work colleague installed the latest 2020-04 Windows Chibistudio and had trouble.
On inspection the C/C++ GCC Cross Compiler Support was not included.
Added that and it got him going.

Hi,

It was uploaded two times, have you downloaded the latest one? if so, what is missing exactly?

Hi.
Was re-downloaded today just to be sure.
Missing was: C/C++ GCC Cross Compiler Support (Build integration and new project wizard support for gcc cross compilers.)

Ah OK, never used that, we are makefile-based. Rocco needs to update his build list.

Actually I mostly use plain Eclipse now on Windows, Linux and MacOS and then add GNU MCU with XPACKs and a linked reference to a checkout of ChibiOS (or copy ChibiOS into a project if preferred rather than using linked reference).
GNU MCU allows setting of tools per project plus it eliminates the need for the External Tools configuration step as debug has setting for "launch openocd locally" with parameters (which debug probe .cfg etc.)
In the case where an XPACK is not available for the required GCC, build tools or openocd, then a specific path to a required tool can be set.
Food for thought...
