Codesourcery Lite G++ ARM toolchain

Go to the following website:

And download the Linux installer of the GNU/Linux version. (I used arm-2010q1-202-arm-none-linux-gnueabi.bin)

IMPORTANT: If you want to build U-boot as well using the Codesourcery toolchain, you need to download the (older) 2010q1-202 version because otherwise U-boot will not find the RAM memory of the OK6410 Board and the kernel can't be loaded. You can see it on the bootscreen of U-boot if the RAM is properly loaded.

After downloading the package open a terminal and go to the directory where the file is saved and type:

$ chmod a+x arm-2010.......bin
$ sudo ./arm-2010.........bin

64-bit Linux users must make a few changes to their system. You can read them here on the Codesourcery website!

If you get an error message in the terminal, type:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -plow dash

And in the window that appears, choose No, and rerun the ./arm-2010.....bin command.

During the installation select the following options:

  • Typical installation
  • Install directory, change to: /usr/local/Codesourcery....
  • Do not Modify PATH
  • Binary Directory, change to: usr/local/Codesourcery....

After the installation is complete you need to add the new location to your PATH. In your home directory type:

$ gedit .bashrc

Add the bottom of the file add the following line:

  1. export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/CodeSourcery/Sourcery_G++_Lite/bin/

Reload your path by using the command (the command is WITH the dot and space!):

$ . .bashrc

Then you can try if the ARM toolchain works by typing:

$ arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc -v

Which results in

hacor@intel-i7:~$ arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc -v
