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:

Linux eclipse oxygen - Build configuration linker settings reset to default after update

Dear OpenSTM32 support,

after I updated my eclipse Neon based framework, all my “build configurations” lost their “linker settings”.

Editing the .cproject file, it seems that the issue is due to the linker name which have changed from “GCC linker” to “G++ linker”.

Well, I will copy paste the GCC linker script configuration to G++ linker script one and pray everything comes back as before.

Anyway maybe at least a warning should be useful and at best a way to easily migrate from a linker configuration to the other one ?

Best regards,


Well I don’t know why I don’t have access to the “GCC linker” anymore. I am running an oxygen version of eclipse with last update of the openSTM32 framework and only “G++ linker” is avaialable. On a windows 10 configuration with my neon eclipse, “GCC linker” is the only available tool after updating the framework.

Anyway, here is a script which helped me to solve my issue: it converts the “GCC linker” entries to “G++ linker” ones.

> cat .cproject | awk -f awk-convert_gcc_g++.awk

Then, I edited the .cproject file and kept the “GCC linker” entries, removed the “empty “G++ linker” configuration and only left my generated “G++ linker configurations”.

Seems to work fine after refreshing my project :-)

Hope this helps,

PS: and btw, after solving my configuration issues, I d like to thank you a lot for including C++ in the openSTM32 framework !!!
