DS-5: BUILDING APPLICATIONS USING GCC ON AN UBUNTU HOST FAILS


Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • ARM Development Studio 5

SYMPTOM

Building applications using gcc on an Ubuntu host fails.

CAUSE

DS-5 is supplied with pre-built copies of gcc and other GNU tools. The DS-5 bin directory contains wrapper scripts to launch these tools, and these are configured to run using the bash shell. Many Ubuntu systems have dash installed instead of bash. This problem happens whether you are building an image using Eclipse or on the command-line.

RESOLUTION

Ubuntu is not a supported host system for DS-5. However, this problem can be overcome by editing the wrapper scripts in the bin folder of your DS-5 installation and changing the line at the top from:

#!/bin/sh

to:

#!/bin/bash
