SAM7X Debugging / Development

Joerg Wiegelmann
Hi folks,

a few years ago I left my company to work as a freelancer and to have
much more freetime :-). Now my old company asked me for help, because
they have network problems that appear not very often. I don't know now
if the problems are on the application or the network layer. The Nut Os
Version is 4.10.2.1
They are using a board design, based on the AT91SAM7SE-EK. In the past
there was a setup to work with yagarto and using the debugging function
with eclipse. But this is outdated now. Nower days there are a plenty of
tools. Do anyone now which tool is recommended today and where I can
find a "how to compile and debug the Ethernut stuff" today? Is the
actual ethernut 5 supporting the old SAM7X Cpu?

Thank you for your help

Jörg

Hello,

SAM7X support was not active thrown out, but some bitrot may have
happened as most of the changes are STM32 related and not ethernet
related.
On my system, I can compile  e.g. the httpd_upnp example for a
nucleo_f767zo board and for the sam7eth. When compiling for the
at91sam7se_ek, at first
<command-line>:0:7: fatal error: arch/arm/board/at91sam7se_ek.h: No such file or directory
happend, but simple creating an empty board file made the compile
succeed.

I use
https://developer.arm.com/tools-and-software/open-source-software/developer-tools/gnu-toolchain/gnu-rm.

There is not much traffic on this list. Harald is busy with other
task. But some ethernet related issues and solutions have been
discussed. Check first the mailing list archive.

Git log on the ethernet related files may also show what happened. Look
at http://ethernut.de/en/download/index.html how to get and update a
git svn repo.

Hope this helps

Uwe
