This is a page created for those who are interested in running an IDE for developing NIOS II uClinux code. Eclipse is based on java, initially developed by IBM, and now open source.
There 2 pieces of software you need in order to run Eclipse IDE: Java runtime and Eclipse-SDK.
They can be downloaded at Sun java and Eclipse.org. The example I give is based on the 3 files I downloaded at the time.
The following command does it
mv jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin ./
chmod 744 jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bincd /usr/java
Follow the instruction on your terminalComplete instruction can be found in java's website.
Note: It is important to install CDT before Eclipse-SDk (it shouldn't matter, but somehow I find that Eclipse did not register the later plug-in if CDT is post installed)
Download CDT 3.1 (org.eclipse.cdt.sdk-3.1.0-linux.x86.tar.gz) from here
Place the file in /usr.
cp org.eclipse.cdt.sdk-3.1.0-linux.x86.tar.gz /usr
tar xvzf org.eclipse.cdt.sdk-3.1.0-linux.x86.tar.gz
Place eclipse-SDK-3.2-linux-gtk.tar.gz file in /usr
tar xvzf eclipse-SDK-3.2-linux-gtk.tar.gz
rm eclipse-SDK-3.2-linux-gtk.tar.gz (optional)
/usr/eclipse/eclipse -vm /usr/java/jre1.5.0_06/bin/java &
You can follow the blackfin uClinux wiki for further stuff. Please add to this page if anyone has gone further.
