bsp-editor generated makefile is useless

Howdy,

 

I've configured my Quartus Prime project for the Cyclone V SOC. When I use the bsp-editor program to generate the preloader (which executes without complaint), the generated Makefile contains only the following:

 

.PHONY: all
all: 
	@echo "Please visit https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/BuildingBootloader for instructions on how to build the bootloader."

 

 

Which clearly doesn't actually build anything.

 

Before I wade through the documentation at this link, I would like to know what is going on, and why I get this useless makefile (which clearly blocks me from going further). Have I configured something wrong?

Hi,

The bsp-editor has been removed in the latest Quartus and SoC EDS version starting from 20.1:

By referring to the latest Rocketboards link you will be using the latest version of Uboot or any version as you wish, the bsp-editor will use old version of Uboot.
