12.1 EDK - Editing linker script manually does not cause a rebuild in SDK

Description


I can successfully compile my software using SDK. However, when I manually change the linker script file, I cannot recompile the code:
Make: nothing to be done
I have to clean up the project in order to recompile the C code and generate a new ELF file with the new linker script settings.
Is this an issue?

Solution


This is an issue with SDK 12.x.The generated makefiles do not have dependency from the linker script to the ELF.
This issue is to be resolved in SDK 13.1, due out Spring 2011.
