Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

I am trying to load a project from the Terasic DE2 CD from Eclipse IDE in NIOS 10. 

 

When I select the workspace the following message shows: 

 

"project conversion failed for project hello_led_0 with the following error: Error loading Managed Make project information for project hello_led_0. The tools definitions used to create the project are not available". 

 

Any way to fix this?

Hi InakiC, 

 

I am trying to load a project from the Terasic DE2 CD from Eclipse IDE in NIOS 10.1. 

 

I have the same problem that you said. Did you already solve it? 

 

Best Regards

Re: Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

You need to convert the IDE project which is _syslib to Eclipse format which is _bsp in command line, after that import the project to Nios II SBT for Eclipse.

Re: Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

Hi, 

 

Here is the command you need 

nios2-convert-ide2sbt --input-dir=<source directory>  

--output-dir=<target directory>  

--build-config=<configuration> 

 

where 

<source directory>—directory containing the original Nios II IDE project. 

<target directory>—directory where nios2-convert-ide2sbt places the 

converted SBT project. If <target directory> does not exist, nios2-convert-ide2sbt 

creates it. 

<configuration>—Debug or Release, designating the Nios II IDE project 

configuration. 

 

For more information, you might need to refer here 

Porting Nios II IDE Projects to the SBT

Re: Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

Well, we tried that but since we can't even build the project (we are using the DE2_NET example), we don't have a Build or Release folder so the console outputs the error "Not a valid input directory" after trying to convert it using that console command. 

 

What is the problem and what can we do now??

Re: Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

So, just to se what error we got we created an empty Release folder, it asked for a makefile, we created an empty makefile and then this.

By building the project on Eclipse, nothing happens at all...

Re: Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

Hi, sorry was busy for projects. You need to build at least once to have the either 'Release' or 'Debug' folder. Create a blank project in Nios II IDE and then copy those .c and .h files to application project. Build one time so that you have makefile and .etc ready for conversion. 

 

In fact, why did you want to convert since the project was not built before? You could actually directly create a BSP project in Nios II SBT for Eclipse from scratch.

Re: Eclipse: Project Conversion Failed

I can't get build and execute this project in my PC (with the NIOS2 SBT 10.1). I installed the Quartus 7.1 and NIOS2 IDE 7.1 to run the project (like indicated for Terasic http://www.terasic.com/downloads/cd-rom/de2/) and convert it. 

It didn't run. 

 

Look this note of Altera: 

http://www.altera.com/support/kdb/solutions/rd02122007_738.html 

So, I believe I need of this path 0.02 to can execute. Do you??? 

 

What do you think about it??? 

 

thnks!!!
