Is there any way to omit the time stamp from the elf image generation every time so we can match the image for every compile? is the nios-elf limited in the functionality then gcc elf.

Hi, do you mean "match the software to the hardware ?"  

 

Are you using QSYS/SOPC ? 

It is not a good idea to omit timestamp. But you can, either by unticking the option in nios2 programmer GUI or by omitting the option in nios2-programmer command line. 

 

I had troubles like you (you are not precise) when the QSYS component was not at the root project directory. If so Rebuild your QSYS and save it to the root project directory
