I did It!!
I successfully got a Blinky program to build and run on my ST32F429I-DIscovery board(the LCD version).
I have done this in linux and I am estatic becuase this was my last hurdle to be 100% windows free!!
I am using Ultimate Edition Linux 4.3.2 with Kernel 4.2.3, it is a Ubuntu 14.04 based distro with many DE’s installed, currently I am using XFCE4.12.
I started out with Ecilpse Mars and it seems to be giltchy so I switch back to Luna and after plugging around for a few hours I finally got it to work and verifed the program by changing the flashing speed of the LED.
I have had this board for almost 3 years now and I have been wanting to use it, I did get blinky to work in CoCox before not so long ago, but I wanted all of my Electronic Development to happen in linux now, and that day has now come!!!
Now when I look back on all of the steps this was a lot easier to do than it was making it work in CooCox.
I am not sure what was giving me trouble at first but it is working now and that is all that matters!!
