Build U-Boot for Atmel AT91RM9200 demo board using Greenhills?

Started by Dennis C March 31, 2004
Hello everyone:

I like to build U-Boot for the Atmel AT91RM9200 ARM9 demo board.
However the docs say that it is only buildable on Linux using GNU C.

I like to ask if U-Boot can be built using the Greenhills compiler
using their MULTI IDE on the Windows XP platform? Has anyone gotten it
to work using the Greenhills compiler? Any tips is much appreciated!

Thanks

Probably not. Your chances might be better using GCC under cygwin, if you think you must work under Windoze. Life would be easier if you used an operating system, though.

At the moment Keil have a good ARM GNU C on their eval CD.... the IDE/Sim is limited to 16K but the compiler is of course unrestricted. It has cygwin with it. This could be a good place to start as Keil have got a good M$ Win based GNU/cygwin package and there is no need to use the IDE.. Why are you using the GHS compiler? /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \/\/\/\/\ Chris Hills Staffs England /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/ chris@phaedsys.org www.phaedsys.org \/\/ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
