I am using Cortex A7 for my application. I have a system with Workstation Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 with x86_64. I followed the steps mentioned in installation page of ARM DS - 5 but failed while opening the Eclipse IDE. I am in need of complete installation steps for ARM DS5 for Linux platform.
Sorry to hear that you are having problems to open the Eclipse IDE.
Please try launching Eclipse on the command-line witheclipse -clean
(that's eclipse space minus clean)
Which version of DS-5, exactly, are you using? Please note that DS-5 has been superseded by Arm Development Studio.
I'd strongly recommend that you upgrade to Arm Development Studio. A free 30-day evaluation is available.
Hope this helps
Thanks for the Answer.
I tried to run the command you mentioned but failed. Its mentioning "Command not found"
I would like to provide some information you asked :
Version of DS - 5 using : 5.29.3
I started to reinstall, but stuck at one issue regarding the "No Default Toolkit Set"
I am attaching the screenshot for your reference. Kindly guide me on this
Can you run the suite_exec utility? It is described belowhttps://developer.arm.com/documentation/dui0478/u/arm-ds-5-tutorials/configuring-a-compiler-toolchain-for-the-ds-5-command-prompt
I followed up with your suggestions and I am able to Configure the Environment - "Arm Compiler 5 "
Would like to know what are the further steps of installation of DS - 5 after setting up the Environment
The current terminal status screenshot I am attaching here
I would recommend using Arm Compiler 6 (armclang) rather than Arm Compiler 5 (armcc), though the version of armclang provided with DS-5 is rather immature (it is now ~3 years old). Armcc is no longer maintained, and is not recommended for any new projects.
Either way, you should now be able to build an example (try any from //DS-5 install dir/examples folder).
You started this thread reporting that you could not launch the Eclipse IDE? After reinstalling are you now able to do this?
Not sure what you wish to do, but there are a number of tutorials here:https://developer.arm.com/tools-and-software/embedded/legacy-tools/ds-5-development-studio/resources/get-started
I am able to launch the Eclipse IDE successfully.
The reason for choosing the ARM Compiler 5 is because I am using ARM Cortex A7.
Will it support ARM Cortex A7 if I use ARM Compiler 6?
Now I got a clear picture of the tool and following up with examples given
Yes, Cortex-A7 (indeed all "Cortex" processors) are supported by Arm Compiler 6.Use "armclang --target=arm-arm-none-eabi -mcpu=list" for a full list (or "--target=aarch64-arm-none-eabi" for the 64-bit cores)
I changed it but while running Hello World program I got the following errors
Can you please guide me on fixing these issues
I am attaching the screenshot for your reference
Thanks & Regards
I've never experienced such errors, so not sure what the cause could be...
Do you have the necessary libs installed? See the below (though they don't refer to precisely your issue).
Are you using a supported host OS?
I will look into these
Hi again Manjunath, it seems these are benign warning messages from the Eclipse CDT - they should not affect functionality in any way.
