Eclipse plugin for mspdebug and msp430-gcc

Recommended Posts

Cannot complete the request.  See the error log for details.
Msp430eclipse will be ignored because it is already installed, and updates are not permitted.

Do I need to reinstall eclipse ?

 

I did and installed the new plugin but I can't select MCU and MSPDEBUG driver. :cry:

Hmm.. that does not look good. Which version of Eclipse are you using? And do you have Eclipse installed via your distribution or "manually"?

 

It should not be necessary to reinstall eclipse when upgrading the plugin.

Hi,

 

the first version of your plugin was installed already and it said "upgrading not supported".

Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers
Version: Indigo Service Release 1
Build id: 20110916-0149 

Downloaded from eclipse.org. The debian package didn't want the first version of your plugin, so I haven't tried that.

Got it :thumbup:

I was using the already installed tool chain. Now I've tried your precompiled binaries.

Ahh, seems like I should put in some better error handling to avoid confusing situations like the one you just experienced.

 

Debug does not really work but building and uploading does.

 

Very good to hear that you got something to work. May I ask in what way debugging does not work? With Indigo and the precompiled binaries it should work

 

Cheers,

Paul

I was trying to install this on my 2nd PC and could spot "retrieving mcu list" and "not found", this brought me back on track.

Well, not at all. When I hit the "bug" nothing happens, debug perspective does not open. I guess I have to set it up first ?

 

Thanks,

Stephan

 

Edit: This is in the console window when I hit run

/bin/bash: /home/oppa/workspace/test/Debug/test.elf: Kann die Datei nicht ausf

Please don't beat me, but will this work for windows as well?

 

I normally use CCS, but having an opensource alternative and using the mspgcc would be preferable. A easy to setup 100% opensource IDE for linux, windows and macos would be a big step into the right direction.

At this point this is a Linux only thing (probably won't work on any BSDs either), but if there is interest for it, I'm willing to try to make it work on Windows as well.

I'd love to have the plugin operate in OSX. The plugin installed without the compilers but doesn't work. I was hoping to use eclipse as the IDE for the mspgcc I previously installed.

 

I have probably added a couple of Linuxisms, which isn't the best idea. I'll try to see if I can get it up and running on a BSD system (as I have no macs around) in order to make the code a bit more portable.

 

Can you elaborate on how it does not work?

 

Cheers,

Paul

@xpg I used your instructions at http://www.43oh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&p=13656#p13656. The install worked fine by deselecting the toolchains. The next step of opening 'window -> preferences' is where the issue lies -there is no MSP430 tab. Looking at your screenshot, I assumed that if the install of the plugin worked, I could manually locate my mspgcc installs.
