[ECOS] target.ld error

Hello

Unfortunately nothing seems to solve my problem.
Let me tell you exactly what I am doing.
As specified in the eCos user guide, I am using the ConfigTool for Windows.
I choose the PowerPC simulator target and build it.
My installation or build directory is c:\eCos-Work\PPC_install.
After doing this and following the user guide, I try to compile the hello.c example.
When I use the powerpc-eabi-gcc command, I get this error: bash: powerpc-eabi-gcc: command not found.
I don't know how to resolve this error. So I just try gcc, it works but gives the target.ld error as mentioned in my earlier emails.
I don't know if I am following the right procedure, all I want is to run the example programs on the PowerPC simulator using eCos.
Can anyone of you help me and tell me how to proceed. How to edit the makefile, etc. Am I doing the right stuff as I am absolutely new to eCos.


Thanks in anticipation.
dranne
