SW4STM32 and SW4Linux fully supports the STM32MP1 asymmetric multicore Cortex/A7+M4 MPUs

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world.
And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4.

System Workbench for STM32

(Linux version) Opening « Properties > Builder Settings » makes Workbench hang

I have a project compiled with gcc under Linux, based on my own custom Makefile - and I have little Eclipse experience.
I want to import this project into the STM32 Workbench with as few changes as possible, re-using the Makefile.
For that, I create an empty Makefile project and import my original directories and files.
Then I right-click on the project and open the Properties menu, and I try to open tab “Builder Settings” (to specify that I want to use my own makefile). However when I do this the Workbench hangs indefinitely, all I can do is close the window and quit.
Any suggestion ?
My STM32 Workbench installation is v1.0.0.201410081102, with Eclipse Luna 4.4.2, under LINUX Mint.
Thanks -


Firstly, can you update System Workbench ? It might fix some issues.

Did System Workbench freeze when you open the C/C++ Build > Builder Settings page or when you are validating the changes ?

If your Makefile is in the project root directory, you don’t need to do any change. I suppose you only modified the build location. Can you attach a screenshot for me to reproduce your problem ?

By the way, if your project contains a lot of files, the indexer might be scanning all the files to enable the auto-completion and indexing (which could freeze the GUI). Try disabling the indexer (select your project > Properties > C/C++ General > Indexer, uncheck “Enable indexer”, then Apply).
