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.
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:
- <Quartus II Installation>/embedded/Embedded_Command_Shell.bat
- <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.
