Why do my make files fail in Altera ARM DS-5 on Windows?

Environment

  • Quartus® II Subscription Edition
  • Linux*

    BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    If the ARM Development Studio™ 5 (DS-5™) Altera Edition Toolkit eclipse is launched from the Windows Start Menu, any scripts or Makefiles will run in a DOS command shell, causing Linux based scripts to fail.

     

    Resolution

    To resolve this issue launch the ARM Development Studio™ 5 (DS-5™) Altera Edition Toolkit from an Altera Embedded Command Shell window,  this will ensure Makefiles run in a Cygwin Linux shell.

    Altera Embedded Command Shell can be launched from:

    • Windows
      • <Quartus II Installation>/embedded/Embedded_Command_Shell.bat 
    • Linux
      • <Quartus II Installation>/embedded/Embedded_Command_Shell.sh 

    Altera reccommends launching Eclipse from an Altera Embedded Command Shell.  

    A link to the Altera Embedded Command Shell is due to be added to the Windows Start menu group for the next major release of the Altera SoC Embedded Command Suite.
