I know nothing about ARM chips, or really any embedded programming at all. I want to learn though, so I purchased a book that was recently released (this one if you are wondering), which teaches embedded programming on a NUCLEO F030R8 development board.
The book has instructed me to set up System Workbench for STM32 on Eclipse, which I have done successfully. I am now attempting to create a new project exactly as the book directs, and I have come to this dialog right here:
The book tells me to select the “Hardware Abstraction Layer (Cube HAL)” radio, and then click the “Download target firmware” button. When I do this, a new dialog appears asking me to accept the license agreement. When I do so, the “C Project” window as pictured above flashes for a single frame before reverting to how it is now. There is no indication that any download has started or is in progress. After waiting for a little while, I have determined no download has taken place.
While I’m sure it’s possible to proceed without the abstraction layer, I wish to follow as closely with the book as I can, because that is how I learn the best. I do not want to move on until I can get this HAL installed properly. Is there an alternative method of installing it? I haven’t found anything on Google.
My system information:
OS: Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS 64 bit
Board: STM NUCLEO F030R8
