GCC: SELECTING DIFFERENT GNU VERSIONS
Information in this article applies to:
Is there a way to select a different version of a GNU ARM toolchain? What are the steps required? When I try to translate with the GNU ARM toolchain I get the following error messages:
--- Error: can't execute 'as' --- Error: can't execute 'gcc'
What causes this error?
To use GNU toolchain variants, µVision V3.21 allows you to specify a GNU-Tool-Prefix. If this parameter is not configured properly, you may get the error message shown above.
To select the GNU toolchain open the dialog Project - Components, Environment, Books - Folders/Extensions.
Use GNU Tools selects the GNU development tools for a project. The setting Cygnus Folder specifies the path to the GNU installation folder. The GNU-Tool-Prefix allows you to use GNU toolchain variants.
Examples for the various GNU versions:
GNU V3.22 with uclib:
CodeSourcery G++ with new-lib:
GNUARM V4 with standard library:
