ARM Tools

Das none-eabi ist für sogenannte bare-metal builds (statisch gelinkt,
monolithisches OS/App.) gedacht, während das elf-gcc davon ausgeht, dass
die übersetzte Applikation unter (Linux/)ELF läuft, d.h. von einem OS
geladen wird.

Building Yagarto under Linux

Yagarto builds a bare-metall compiler (everything is statically linked, no embedded OS is used), that is needed for compiling µracoli. The prefix of the cross compile tools is is arm-none-eabi-<tool>.

Troubleshooting GDB

The initial contact with GDB brought up the following error message:

(arm-gdb)target remote localhost:3333
Remote debugging using localhost:3333
Remote 'g' packet reply is too long: 1484000012008c....................

After googling a bit, the solution of this issue is to apply the patch from http://pastebin.com/rdFF2eZd referenced by Stackoverflow.com:arm-none-eabi-gdb and openocd: Malformed response to offset query, qOffsets?

This patch did help, but for version 0.6.1 it needed to be applied manually:

After a "make; sudo make install" the first debug session could be started.
