I am coming from a Windows background and M4/A5 (Vybrid) usage. I anticipate using the iMX8X when everything is ready. I am new to Linux so working through that. I will be developing code on a Ubuntu (18.04) platform and hoping to use Torizon when it’s ready for the Colibri iMX8X platform. Meanwhile I’m trying to build a functional toolchain based on Eclipse (which is also new to me - I used the IAR IDE). I got Eclipse installed using SNAP and it appears functional. The next task is to connect it to the ARM toolchain. I realize that there are multiple tutorials in the Toradex Developer Center, however most of there are dated and don’t really work. It appears that the ARM binaries have moved to the xPack project. The instructions (DEPRECATED > How to install the ARM toolchain? ) state the way to install the latest version is:
$ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/arm-none-eabi-gcc
This worked to install the binaries into root/opt/xPacks. The question is how do I get Eclipse to recognize the compiler (and select the correct one for ARMv8)?
What is the latest on getting a version of Torizon to run on the iMX8X?
