Don't feel like doing all the compiler testing your self? Well in that case, let's install the Sourcery CodeBench Lite Edition for ARM EABI (used to be known as CodeSourcery g++).
The short version is, download the installer and read the getting started guide.
And in this guide I am using release1802 also know as Sourcery G++ Lite 2011.03-42 for ARM EABI, https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/release1802.
First download the docs so we can read them when we need some help.
# First create a work dir mkdir -p ~/stm32/CodeBench/ cd ~/stm32/CodeBench/ wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11457/as.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11456/binutils.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11464/libc.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11460/gcc.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11462/gdb.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11463/getting-started.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11458/ld.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11465/libm.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11461/cpp.pdf & wget -nv https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/doc11459/gprof.pdf & wait
Then start the installation by doing some cut and paste into your terminal.
cd ~/stm32/CodeBench/ # Open the installation manual, so you can read it if you need to... evince getting-started.pdf & # Get the installer wget https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/package8736/public/arm-none-eabi/arm-2011.03-42-arm-none-eabi.bin # CodeBench has a problem with dash, so make sure you don't use it. sudo dpkg-reconfigure -plow dash #And then answer No # Now bash is the default /bin/sh and not dash! ls -lh /bin/sh # Create the install dir. sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/CodeBench_1802_EABI sudo chown $USER.users /usr/local/CodeBench_1802_EABI # And create a add to path script echo "export PATH=/usr/local/CodeBench_1802_EABI/bin:\$PATH" > ~/stm32/bin/CodeBench_setup.sh
Then we start the installer.
Then when you need this compiler you run this script.
