Part Number: TMDXSK437X
Tool/software: TI C/C++ Compiler
We have bought a device AM437x Starter Kit. We are going to use the GUI matrix and make some new program. I have several questions for this device. Could somebody helps me?
1) Do we have a method to debug the board? there is a USB cable to connect the device with the host Computer, it seems there is no instructions about how to use it to debug
2) In the program we need to call some 3rd device drivers which are written under general Linux OS. When creating new project by CCS6, do we use CCS project or general C++ project?
2.1) if using CCS project, should we choose Crosss GCC or Linux GCC?
2.2) if using general C++ project, do we choose TI V15.12.1.LTS compiler or GNU V4.9.3 (Linaro) compiler?
3) I noticed there is no g++ compiler in the list, I suppose those GCC or TI V15.12.1.LTS or GNU V4.9.3 compilers are all right to handle the C++ project and 3rd party c++ device driver?
Thank you very much for the help!

Hi Yordan, Thank you very much for the reply! Generally I have understood the idea, but I am still not sure about some details. 1) I can connect the device and host computer with USB, is there a method to enter the OS of the device from the host computer? for example: how can I copy a file from host to the device; how can I use GDB (or other tool) to debug the device?; how can I change the IP address of the device? 2) I cannot use Linux driver under CCS project or RTOS environment, but I can directly use Linux driver with a general C++ project using GNU compiler in environment PROCESSOR-SDK-LINUX-AM437X. Is my understanding correct? I have built the environment Ubuntu 12.04. I can install some drivers with "sudo apt-get install". Can I use this type of drivers on the device? if yes, is it possible to enter the device portal remotely and run command "sudo apt-get install"? Please forgive me that some questions may sound naive. I am still in the early stage and try to get familiar to the the environment . Best regards Zong
