Unable to regenerate BSP in Eclipse NIOS II EDS

Hello, 

 

I recently made a project in the NIOS II EDS version 11.1. 

 

In eclipse I made a BSP and an application to run with the BSP. 

 

Everything worked fine many times, but for some unknown reason, when i want to build, I get this error: 

 

**** Build of configuration Nios II for project rts_experiment **** make all Info: Building ../rts_experiment_bsp/ make --no-print-directory -C ../rts_experiment_bsp/ Makefile not up to date. ../../swsched.sopcinfo has been modified since the BSP was generated. Generate the BSP to update the Makefile, and then build again. To generate from Eclipse: 1. Right-click the BSP project. 2. In the Nios II Menu, click Generate BSP. To generate from the command line: nios2-bsp-generate-files --settings=<settings file> --bsp-dir=<target bsp files directory> make: *** Error 1 make: *** Error 2  

 

However, the BSP project seems to be broken, since if i right-click it, I dont get the generate BSP option in the menu :((((  

 

I made a picture but I can't upload it since i first need 5 posts :S. Its truly not in the right-click menu anymore while it used to be there all the time :(. 

 

This is really annoying me for a few days now, since I have to do the whole create new BSP wizards EVERY TIME i make an adjustment to my system. 

 

I also can't use the command line command in windows, dunno if its supposed to work under windows at all. 

 

 

I'd be much obliged if someone could help me! 

 

Thanks.

I had the same issue, but only reinstall of Eclipse helped then.

I have found out that the nios2-bsp-generate-files executable is in (for default location): 

 

C:\altera\11.1sp1\nios2eds\sdk2\bin 

 

If you go there on the command line in windows, you can type: 

 

nios2-bsp-generate-files.exe --settings=<path to bsp folder>\settings.bsp --bsp-dir=<path to bsp folder>  

 

For me it was for example: 

 

C:\altera\11.1sp1\nios2eds\sdk2\bin>nios2-bsp-generate-files.exe --settings=C:\rts\rts_jwp_2011\hw\software\rts_experiment_bsp\set tings.bsp --bsp-dir=C:\rts\rts_jwp_2011\hw\software\rts_experiment_bsp  

 

Then it will indeed generate the bsp manually again like it says in the help text of the error. 

 

Won't have to reinstall eclipse!

in my case, I did something similar, the difference is that I have version 18.1

and then you can build without problem

Hi, could someone maybe clarify the solution above for me. I don't fully understand what do with the path-specification mentioned. In my simple mindedness I tried typing the entire thing in the windows command line ("run"-box), using the path to my own project directory of course... A black console appeared doing its thing briefly, so maybe I did it right... just don't know because it did not work... 

 

I'm working on a restricted faculty computer though, so maybe that's the problem. Reinstalling the program is really not possible either... A truly frustrating annoyance that the program simply can't remember where it created the project, when it all seems rather spelled out for it...

regenerate a new BSP by right clicking on the bsp project and then go to nios II and generate bsp and then run your program as a hardware.
