I 've a module with a Cortex-M4 Vybrid VF61 processor and an installed linux.
The installed linux does not provide gcc and gdb for native compiling and debugging.
Please, can anybody tell me, where I can download a prebuilt gcc and a prebuilt gdb for native compiling and debugging ?
Thank you for yor answer.
I need compiling and debugging natively.
I use "Visual Studio" on a PC for remote compiling and remote debugging my projects.
So I can write code for several hardware platforms. It works with Windows, MCIMX6U5DM, Rasperry, Ubuntu PC and PowerPC.
It works, if gcc and gdb are installed on target. Switching the platforms is very convinient, entering the IP and platform type, that 's it.
Years ago I worked with Eclipse. The last version was Ganymed or Helios, I don´t remember exactly. It was not so convinient.
I never achieved breakponits on Memory Access on running aplications. May be I am to stupid for it.
But with Visual Studio I had no problem with it, because GDB provides this option.
It worked already with Cortex-M4, until I started "opkg dist-upgrade". That was a big mistake.
The upgraded version included a none-working gcc and no gdb.
I could install already a package including a gcc, also it included much software i don't need, but no gdb.
I tried to compile a toolchain for gdb, it took very long time and so I left. When i returned I could read "permission denied".
That 's my issue.
