VF61 A5 Cortex Examples

Hello,

I set up my development environment with Ubuntu 18.04 and linaro toolchain. After compiling and executing a simple hello world app on the target, I want to compile and execute prepared examples. In this context, I follow the steps in the following link ;

https://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/freertos-on-the-cortex-m4-of-a-colibri-vf61#Examples

But I would like to ask something. Isn’t there custom embedded linux on A5 Cortex ? Is yes, compiler naming convention should be like “arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc” or “arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++”? But according to the tutorial, “arm-none-eabi-gcc” should be used for compiling. I am new on this platform and a bit confused. Could you please help me to clarify this ambitious points ?

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards

Hi @cranberriess,

Yes, there is.

You can either follow the guide for “How to setup environment for Embedded Linux application development” or follow the QuickStart for VF61, configured accordingly to your environment.

Please let me know if that helped.

Best regards,
André Curvello
