7.1 / 6.3 / 6.2 EDK - powerpc-eabi-gcc: "powerpc-eabi/bin/ld: cannot find boot.o"

Description


General Description:

After I select VxWorks as my Operating System in the software settings in XPS, the following error occurs when I compile program sources:



"powerpc-eabi-gcc -O2 code/web.c -o ppc405_i/code/executable.elf \

-Wl,-defsym -Wl,_HEAP_SIZE=0 -Wl,-T -Wl,code/linker_script -I./ppc405_i/include/ -I./ppc405_i/include/ -I./code/ -L./ppc405_i/lib/ -L./ppc405_i/lib/ \



/xygdrive/c/EDK/gnu/powerpc-eabi/nt/bin/../lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-eabi/2.95.3-4/../../../../powerpc-eabi/bin/ld: cannot find boot.o"

Solution

This problem occurs because source files should not be included to an XPS where VxWorks has been selected as the OS. In this situation, only LibGen should be run to generate the VxWorks BSP.
