gcc missing on SAMA5D4Xplained demo?

Sun Feb 24, 2019 6:47 pm

Hi,
I am attempting to build FIM on my target SAMA5D4Xplained board directly.
The board has been loaded with the stock V6.0 video demo.
I have loaded the FIM source with WGET.
The make is failing, saying it can't find gcc or cc.
I see that the libgcc1 package is installed on the board.

How can I verify that gcc is or is not installed?
Is there something that I need to configure?
If gcc is not there, then is there a pre-compiled version of the gcc tools that I can install on the board, say using OPKG?

Thanks!

Learn how to use shell commands such as `which` and `find`.

Embedded devices rarely have an installed toolchain.
Developers (especially professionals) typically use a cross-toolchain on a PC or workstation host that has far more processor, memory and storage capacity than the target board.

IOW this board (with its demo software) is simply not intended to be a substitute for a desktop computer.

Ok, thanks. I was hoping to do some quick tests with FBI or FIM. So I'll get this working with a proper dev system.
