installing GNU ARM TOOL Chain on Eclipse on a Linux Machine

Started by aquibf September 30, 2009
Hi,

I am trying to use Eclipse on a Linux machine for ARM development, but can'
get to understand how to install the arm tool chain on to Eclipse.

I am looking for docs, tutorials or direct help that will allow me
configure Eclipse to compile c code for the arm processor.

You should manually install a "command line" tool chain and then configure your 
eclise setup the directories.

I have been looking for the same thing, you may find this link useful http://carrierwave.wordpress.com/ I ended up using a Windows platform instead using the Yagarto setup, a lot of the config is probably similar though. Hth

Try www.codesourcery.com. They will sell you a package with Eclipse and gcc integrated for $400. You get the most up-to-date ARM gcc and support from the people who maintain the ARM port, some useful libraries, and Eclipse and gdb integration. Since you are asking such a "getting started" question in a newsgroup, it's a fair assumption that CodeSourcery will save you at least $400 worth of time.

Try typing into Google "eclipse arm toolchain". -- // This is my opinion.
