Problem with GNUARM plugin for Eclipse

Started by MAYURESH M March 3, 2012
Hi all,

I am facing a strange issue with Eclipse GNUARM plugin. In office we use Windows XP 32 and have set up Eclipse + CodeSourcery toolchain for ARM development.

But today when I tried to install the same toolchain on my laptop it doesn't get installed. I have downloaded eclipse helios for windows 64-bit (because I am using Windows 7 64). When I try to install the GNUARM plugin from http://gnuarmeclipse.sourceforge.net/updates I get an error saying it cannot be installed because some required component is missing. I have tried the alternate method by downloading the [lugin zip file from sourceforge and then manually pointing eclipse to it for installation. But I get the same error.

I have code sourcery lite already installed.

Is there any work around for this problem? Is it that this toolchain is not compatible with 64-bit windows?

The YAGARTO package includes Eclipse and GNUARM and it runs on a Win7 x64 machine. It really doesn't matter what toolchain is used with Eclipse. I have some code written in JAL and as long as the Makefile knows how to invoke the compiler, everything works as it should.

Hi,

I had problems with the GNUARM plugin in Eclipse Indigo. So I removed the
plugin. You can still use your toolchain without GNUARM.

1. Download Eclipse CDT distribution Indigo release from eclipse web site
2. Install GNUARM plugin for Indigo from their website
3. It doesn't matter what GCC toolchain you will use but if you have
more then one could be better create a folder (i.e. tools) under eclipse
cdt path and use that toolchain.

I have installed Gnuarm, embsys, egit/jgit, svn, doxygen and atlassian
plugins in a specific eclipse-arm-embedded installation and it works
pretty well on Win7-64.

Hi,

The issue has been resolved. Looks like we have to update the CDT to its latest version 8. After doing this the gnuarm plugin installed correctly.

Thanks,
Mayuresh
