Since you are new to eCos, I would suggest downloading the latest
snapshot build of the eCos Configuration Tool for Linux hosts. Ref:


You might also download the arm-eabi test release toolchain. Ref:


In the eCos Configuration Tool, set the eCos repository location (Build
>> Repository) as follows:


(this is the folder containing the "packages" folder)

You should then see the eCos configuration tree.

Select the STM32F4-Discovery hardware template (Build >> Templates).

Select the location of your arm-eabi toolchain "bin" folder containing
arm-eabi-gcc (Tools >> Paths >> Build Tools).

You should then be able to build eCos.

I hope this helps...

Hi all,

I am trying to play a bit with eCos on STM32F4 Discovery board. I am
working under Ubuntu 12.04 (32bit). I know that in downloaded binaries
there is no support for this platform. I have to download source files from
CVS repository and compile them myself. OK. I have downloaded them:

cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anoncvs@ecos.sourceware.org:/cvs/ecos co -P ecos
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anoncvs@ecos.sourceware.org:/cvs/ecos co -P host

System variable $ECOS_REPOSITORY has been set up to my downloaded files:

Now after multiple approaches I can't get this thing fully compiled and
installed. In main source folder I have created folder 'build' and run
configure script and make and install:

--prefix=/home/kalbar/CVS_repo/ecos_host/build --with-tcl=/usr/lib/tcl8.4
sudo make install

Some files are getting compiled/build but not all of them. There is still
lack of GUI for eCos configuration and package for for my board does not
seem to build. I would really appreciate some help on this matter as I have
spend quite a lot of time on this and got stuck in dead end with no help
from README files nor google.
