12.1 EDK - Why does SDK rerun Library Generator (libgen) after selecting clean?

Description

Why does SDK rerun Library Generator (libgen) after selecting clean?

Solution

This happens becauseSDK's default is to automatically compile the project when project files change. When the board support package (BSP) changes, SDK will rebuild the files. A change in this case is when a clean command happens. The clean will remove the BSP files and the automatic rebuild will recreate them. To disable automatic rebuild:

- De-select the Project > Build Automatically pull down menu in SDK.
