I'm trying to select an RTSC platform in the New CCS Project window after selecting a "Typical Sys/Bios" template.
When I click on the pull down menu selection button, there is a tenth of a second popup window flashed then the button is grayed out.
This prevents me from going forward trying to get SYS/BIOS onto the BeagleBoard-xM, as I can't even select a platform.
I've also tried creating a new RTSC platform under Debug->Tools->RTSC Tools->Platform->New which creates a platform directory, but it's not openable in the Platform->Edit/View popup, or the above New CCS Project pulldown.
All other settings, target, gel file, linker cfg, etc. have been confirmed to work with a HelloWorld example under the CortexA8 on this same board.
I'm using a Blackhawk USB100v2 JTAG emulator, Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit workstation, CCS 5.1, and a Rev. C BeagleBoard-xM (DM3730).
John,grayed out button indicates there are no platforms available for the selected device. I am guessing you selected Generic Cortex-A8. Which XDCtools are you using? Platforms are delivered through XDCtools, therefore you may need to update XDCtools to get more platforms.
While creating a new platform, you also had to select a device first. Which one did you select?
If my reply answers your question please mark the thread as answered.
Yes, Generic Cortex-A8 under Arm is the only choice that comes close to the DM3730 on the BBxM, and it does work for Hello World.
The XDCtools came with CCS5.1 - 3.22.04.46.
The point I'd like to emphasize is that I can't create a new platform to get around this lack of platform problem.
The targets menu selected from the above choices turns up as ti.targets.arm.A8F
I'm currently sitting in the TI SYS/BIOS class and watching it work on the C6748.
John,when you tried to use your own custom platform in the project, have you added your repository to Product and Repositories in the RTSC tab. That's the same dialog box where you select the target and the platform. You have to click on the button Add, find your repository with the platform and add it. Then, your platform will show up in the drop-down list of platforms. By default, your repository is ~/myRepository/packages. The default platform name is myBoard.
When you want to edit the platform, the repository should automatically be set to your repository, so I am not sure why you weren't able to edit the platform. What exactly happened when you tried to edit the platform?
Finally, I don't think that SYS/BIOS supports COFF Arm targets. You should use the ELF Arm target in the project properties (select elf for General->Main->Output Format)
Thanks! That was enough to get this working...mostly.
Switched to ELF, this enabled the OMAP3530 templates, enough to create a cortexa8 board target, it builds SYS/BIOS, now has a hanging problem loading onto board.
Going to hit Blackhawk to try to figure out next step.
On Linux - there's a problem with cortex8A-xxx vs. Cortex8A case sensitivity in a few stock config files - easily fixed with a text editor.
