[ECOS] Trouble with eCos Config Tool

Hi Ray/Tom,

Another option is to get the latest CVS sources and apply the patches on our 
web site (www.xylanta.com), then compile with wxWidgets 2.6.3 rather than 
the older 2.4.2 and see if that improves matters. I can send my build 
scripts should you need them.

Alternatively there are binaries on the web site as well.

Thanks for your reply Tom.

I was able to download the same file as you: "configtool-060710.exe"

However, following the rest of the instructions on building wxwidget( in
order to ultimately rebuild eCos config) I am having a problem with.
I see some strange make errors. In fact they are the same errors found
by another:
http://sourceware.org/ml/ecos-discuss/2006-06/msg00061.html There was no
posted reply to this e-mail.

How where you able to rebuild the eCos config tool?

I too have recently started with eCos.  I tried running configtool on
cygwin but it did not work.  Like you, I looked into it and found that
this is apparently a problem with newer versions of cygwin.

In the end, I found the page that you referenced, and downloaded the
updated tool on this page.  I think this is called
"configtool-060710.exe".  This works for me.

I take it that, though the above web page says that configtool is a
wxWidgets app, it is only partially so and still relies on unix calls
for which it needs cygwin.
