Building static library with NIOS II Software Build Tools for Eclipse 13.0

Hello, 

I has started to work with the NIOS II Software Build Tools for Eclipse in version 13.0sp1 since two weeks.  

There I am going to build a static library. Therefore, I used the guidance of the NIOS II Software Developer’s Handbook (page 2-25, May 2011).  

I followed the example creating a software package for the BSP (which contains building a static library).  

The problem is that the library is always empty and the build process does not include any source files/object files. 

 

The generated makefile of the nios ii library project calls: 

 

make all  

info: archiving obj/default/libexample_sw_package_library.a 

rm -f -f obj/default/libexample_sw_package_library.a 

mkdir -p obj/default 

nios2-elf-ar -src obj/default/libexample_sw_package_library.a  

cp -f obj/default/libexample_sw_package_library.a libexample_sw_package_library.a 

 

If I go to console myself and compile the lib as following, I am able to generate a lib with content: 

 

nios2-elf-g++ -c *.cpp 

ar rvs libname.a *.o 

 

I tried also the NIOS II Software Build Tools for Eclipse in version 13.0 and 11.0, but they perform equal. 

For me it seems so as if the Nios II Library project or the documentation has a bug.  

Perhaps some can help me to find a way to build the lib in eclipse, in the best case without changing manually the eclipse generated makefile? 

 

Thank you very much in advance.

Did either of you guys have an success with this? Seems to be a common problem

I realize this is an old post, but this might help others. 

 

You need to call these command from the Nios II Command Shell: 

To clear the sources from the makefile: 

nios2-lib-update-makefile --lib-dir /path/to/your/lib --no-src 

To insert all source files in the folder to the makefile: 

nios2-lib-update-makefile --lib-dir /path/to/your/lib --add-src-rdir /path/to/your/sources 

 

You can read the NIOS-II manual for more info on this.
