@ilg-ul ilg-ul released this Sep 27, 2019

The ARM GCC toolchain has a new home in the xPack project:

To install the new versions, use:

$ xpm uninstall --global @xpack-dev-tools/arm-none-eabi-gcc

The GNU MCU Eclipse plug-ins were updated and since Sep. 2019 (v4.6.1) this name is also recognised. For older versions of the plug-ins, adjust the path manually.

Since there are xPacks referring to its binaries, this project will be preserved, at least for a while, but there will be no further changes, and the project will be archived.

Known problems

Windows paths with spaces

Installing the toolchain in locations which use spaces in the path is still problematic.

Temporarily move the toolchain to paths which do not use spaces, or, even better, install it via xpm, which uses safe paths.

Easy install

The toolchain is also available as an xPack and can be conveniently installed with xpm:

$ npm update --global xpm
$ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/arm-none-eabi-gcc 

To install exactly this version, use:

$ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/arm-none-eabi-gcc@8.2.1-1.5.1

Known problems

LTO & debugging on Windows

The Arm 8-2018-q4-major release introduced a problem on Windows: enabling debugging information (-g/-g3) prevents -flto to properly link. For Release configurations it is not a problem to remove the debug
options, but for Debug configurations this is unusable.

The workaround is to revert to the previous 7-2018-q2-update release, or to temporarily disable -flto.

libwinpthread-1.dll

The attempt to fix the LTO plug-in affected the Windows binaries, which in certain configurations may fail with an error claiming the dll is not available. It is, but not in all required folders.

A new release which fixes this bug will be available soon.

The current workaround is to copy the libwinpthread-1.dll from bin to libexec.

Easy install

The toolchain is also available as an xPack and can be conveniently installed with xpm:

$ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/arm-none-eabi-gcc 

To install exactly this version, use:

$ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/arm-none-eabi-gcc@8.2.1-1.3.1

Known problems

GDB

The GDB binary supplied with this release has problems loading the symbols from applications compiled with -flto, it will either crash with segmentation fault or throw an assert.

The bug reports:

The current workaround is to use the GDB binary provided in the previous v7.x release.

liblto_plugin

The tools from binutils, like the archiver, require a plugin in order to process files compiled with -flto (for example to create a static library). The GNU/Linux and macOS distributions include the liblto_plugin.so file, it just needs to be linked to the lib/bfd-plugins folder. The Windows distribution does not include the liblto_plugin-0.dll file, and it must be copied from the ARM distribution.

Easy install

The toolchain is also available as an xPack and can be conveniently installed with xpm:

$ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/arm-none-eabi-gcc 

To install exactly this version, use:

Known problems

objcopy

The latest GNU binutils, also used in Arm Embedded GCC, have a problem when running on 32-bit machines, and objdump fails to generate .hex files. The bug affects both Windows and GNU/Linux machines. 64-bit builds are not affected. The bug is documented as 1810274.

The current solution is to upgrade to 8.2.1-1.2; the workaround is to override arm-none-eabi-objdump with an older binary.

GDB

The GDB binary supplied with this release has problems loading the symbols from applications compiled with -flto, it will either crash with segmentation fault or throw an assert.

The bug reports:

The current workaround is to use the GDB binary provided in the previous v7.x release.
