HI,

I got the eclipse platform ver 3.4.1 from the yagarto website. This was
a zipped file, so i unzipped it into D:\Data\eclipse\. before this i
downloaded the yagarto toolchain and installed the same (defualt
location, program files, C:).

Now my problem is, when i start eclipse, start a new project and try to
select a toolchain in the toolchain editor, i can only see a no
toolchain setting over there. How do i configure it to the yagarto
toolchain.

AKAIK there is no out-of-the-box support in Eclipse for a
Cross-Toolchain as in Yagarto. At least I have not found it in the
current Eclipse (Ganymede). Did you read Jim Lynch's Tutorial available
i.e. from atmel.com? Use a makefile-project and set the compiler for the
parser to arm-elf-gcc and configure the search-pathes for include-files.
There is at least one 3rd party Eclipse-plugin for arm-*-gcc (see
sf.net) but I don't know much about it. For debugging configure a
debug-setup using the GDB hardware-debugging plugin (from the "official"
Eclipse repository) or the 3rd party plugin from Zylin plugin that comes
with Yagarto.

If you are using Windows, setting up an ARM toolchain is simple.Since
you have already downloaded Eclipse and installed Yagarto, just use the
GNUARM Eclipse plugin found at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnuarmeclipse/. It has out of the box
support for Yagarto. Just download the '.jar' file into the Eclipse
plugin folder.

use codesourcery toolchain in eclipse.

Eclipse, the gnuarm plugin, and codesourcery all run under Linux. Just 
install, and be happy ;)

I did folow a tutorial here:
" http://mbed.org/cookbook/Using-mbed-with-gcc-and-eclipse ".
I ended up getting an error and a warning. Take a look at the picture to 
see my warning/error.

Double check if the PATH has been extended according to "Edit PATH and 
add..." in the mentioned tutorial

I managed to install it allover again and i dont get warnings about : 
"cannot find arm-none-eabi-gcc". Instead when compiling i get 2 other 
errors saying "cant find startup.o" and "make: *** [test_balau.elf] 
Error 1"

Hi,

I think it is ok to don't see yagarto toolchain in Eclipse, I mean, you 
can use it but you won't see it there. In fact, as the tutorial says, 
you have to select Neew Project->MakeFile Project [Other Tool chain].

No. If the gnu-arm-plugin for Eclipse is installed properly, you will 
see arm-toolchain projects, and you can select the yagarto-toolchain.

Well, the linker might want to tell you, that something called startup.o 
is missing. If you have a "startup.s" in your source file folder, rename 
is to "startup.S". For some unknown reason Eclipse recognizes only files 
with .S (capital S) as assembler source files.

Wow, this is really nice info. Thank you.
