[ECOS] ECOS: compiler builds.
Tue Aug 17 17:14:00 GMT 1999
I am contemplating using eCos on an embedded product using the MPC860
processor. It has three processor boards. 1 board requires TCP/IP and
SNMP as well as PCMCIA support. I don't think eCos can support these at
the moment (please correct me if I am wrong) so I was thought I'd use
Linux for that one. The other two boards have minimal peripherals
(RS232 and HDLC). This would be ideal for eCos.
I was reading the document and it says to download the ecos software
tools and to compile them. I already have built an egcs-1.1.2
cross-compiler that targets powerpc-eabi. Can I use this. I don't see
any reasons why not. Extra libraries and startup code for board support
packages can be placed in appropriate directories. Please advise on
whether I MUST use the eCos compilers (gcc variants I assume).
I'd like to use Insight as my debugger. I am in the process of building
this for a powerpc-eabi target and can see no reasons why this should
not work. Any comments ?
