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.
You can get more information from the ac6-tools website and download two short videos (registration required) highlighting:

Re: workspace woes how to add a project



For the JPEG and SDIO libraries, these are third party libraries provided by ST. We are working on a way to provide some support but currently you have to manually configure them for correct compilation.

If you look at the project explorer, you’ll see that the errors when compiling them are located in a “library” project for your board (should be named something like stm32f411-disco_stdperiph_lib or nucleo-f411_re_hal_lib depending on your board and firmware version). These projects hold the ST firmware with the options you have selected and are referenced by all projects using the same board.

To correct the errors you may either

  1. Delete the JPEG and SDIO sub-directories in the Utilities folder of this project, thus effectively removing these components from your build
  2. Look at the errors and correct them (this is usually not so complicated)

To navigate to an error you can either:

  • notice a red cross on folders and files where there is errors
  • double click error messages in the console output
  • click error messages in the Problems view at screen bottom

As any IDE, Eclipse has its own tricks but, once used to them, you’ll see that is is overall quite convenient.
