13.2 EDK - Cannot find boot.o

Description

When I build my design in SDK, even with an example application, I receive the following error message:

**** Build of configuration Debug for project hello_world_0 ****
make all

Solution

This happens when your system has the GCC_EXEC_PREFIX variable set, even if it points to the [powerpc-eabi]/[mb]-gcc directory in the Xilinx install directory. Unsetthis environment variable, re-source the settings[32]/[64].(c)sh, restart SDK, and clean your project to avoid this error.
