I encounter this strange behaviour: I try to disable file generation of speciifc HAL driver file.
Yet, although I change it to "-" with "disable generation" and saves the settings
I verified that in xml there are addition lines:
<IgnoredFileInfo> <componentName>altera_generic_quad_spi_controller</componentName> <fileName>altera_generic_quad_spi_controller.c</fileName> </IgnoredFileInfo>
Yet, on clicking generate bsp, it regenerate the file, and also remove the xml lines from setting, and in gui it also appears as enabled generation.
Any idea why it ignores the setting ?
I'm using quartus 15.1.
This is a known bug that the option to disable BSP file generation in the Nios II BSP Editor not working properly in older version of Quartus.
The workaround is to manually edit, or script updates to the settings.bsp to re-disable the file generation (or to remove the file).
Have you try using a newer version of Quartus (17 and up)?
This bug is still present in Quartus 20.1
Are there plans to actually fix this? It's been years at this point. The only thing that's happened in the mean time is that rshal2's fix no longer seems to work.
We need to use version 15.1 by customer request.
Anyway, I did eventually solved the issue, by changing the driver tab from "default" to its number (I think 13.1 was the only other option except for default),
After doing this change, it all worked as should be.
