Starting questions on CCS5, StarterWare project creation

Hello,

I am attempting to basically re-create one of the example StarterWare projects - the enetEcho example in CCS5.  I get to the point of linking, then a bunch of symbols are not found.  From Project Explorer, the projects look almost identical, Includes listed, paths etc.  I do notice that some basic settings are different  - the menu in Project>Properties lists ARM instead of TMS470 (I am targeting the Beaglebone).

Anyhow, I started to just link to all the source files necessary and have removed most of the link issues (unresolved symbols).  My question then is - is this the proper way to build a project that is not an example?  I am ending up with all the starterware source files listed in my project, and hence this looks nothing like the enetEcho example.  I have played around with all the path and project settings I can find to no avail.  Is there some common place to have the linker find the starterware object files or something?

thanks!

    Hi Edward,

    it sounds like you might be missing some libraries.  Have a look at this wiki topic

    http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Include_paths_and_options

    Typically when moving away from an example to start your own project you may inlcude some libraries or library projects. 

    Please keep us informed whether this helps you further.

    Best Regards,

    Lisa,

    Thanks for the fast reply!  If I was missing libraries would the project build?  It mostly works - I get debug messages on the USB serial port indicating that an IP was set from the DHCP server, so most of it is working.  I also am not changing a single setting or line of code and just doing a rebuild.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay.  I've been able to rebuild and get things mostly running on the beaglebone.  I was unable to get DHCP to work, though.

    Still slogging thru.
