- macOS 10.13.5
- VM – VirtualBox
- Guest OS: Ubuntu 16.04
Setup Contiki on the local machine:
Install the following packages. you might need sudo right.
# sudo apt-get remove gcc-arm-none-eabi gdb-arm-none-eabi binutils-arm-none-eabi # sudo add-apt-repository http://ppa:team-gcc-arm-embedded/ppa # sudo apt-get update
Compile Contiki hello-world for Native:
Native means that your code will compile and run directly on your host PC.
for me, it will run on the Ubuntu 16.04 OS on the VM.
cd into your development folder.
# git clone https://github.com/contiki-os/contiki # cd contiki/examples/hello-world # make TARGET=native
mkdir obj_native CC ../../core/ctk/ctk-conio.c CC ../../platform/native/./contiki-main.c CC ../../platform/native/./clock.c CC ../../core/dev/leds.c ### output truncated ### AR contiki-native.a CC hello-world.c LD hello-world.native rm hello-world.co
The target command tells the compiler to compile for the current system.
This is what is later changed for cross compiling to our target platform.
Type the following command to run the hello-world program.
# ./hello-world.native Contiki-3.x-3343-gbc2e445 started with IPV6, RPL Rime started with address 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52 MAC nullmac RDC nullrdc NETWORK sicslowpan Tentative link-local IPv6 address fe80:0000:0000:0000:0302:0304:0506:0708 Hello, world
if this is how it worked! your compilation worked!
Compiling Contiki-OS for CC13xx
The only thing to be changed is the target. make clean is an important step.
make clean make TARGET=srf06-cc26xx BOARD=sensortag/cc1350
this says the compilation works if you see the following:
CC ../../cpu/cc26xx-cc13xx/lib/cc13xxware/startup_files/ccfg.c CC ../../cpu/cc26xx-cc13xx/./ieee-addr.c AR contiki-srf06-cc26xx.a CC ../../cpu/cc26xx-cc13xx/./fault-handlers.c CC ../../cpu/cc26xx-cc13xx/lib/cc13xxware/startup_files/startup_gcc.c CC hello-world.c LD hello-world.elf arm-none-eabi-objcopy -O ihex hello-world.elf hello-world.i16hex srec_cat hello-world.i16hex -intel -o hello-world.hex -intel arm-none-eabi-objcopy -O binary --gap-fill 0xff hello-world.elf hello-world.bin cp hello-world.elf hello-world.srf06-cc26xx rm hello-world.i16hex hello-world.co obj_srf06-cc26xx/fault-handlers.o obj_srf06-cc26xx/startup_gcc.o
This error absolutely means that the installation of the compiler for cross-compilation wasn’t successful.
/bin/sh: 1: arm-none-eabi-gcc: not found
Next step would be to compile with contiki-ng since, there is active development is happening there and to base all developments to that repo.
# git clone https://github.com/contiki-ng/contiki-ng # cd contiki-ng # git submodule update --init --recursive
navigate to the hello-world example and hit the following
# make clean make TARGET=srf06-cc26xx BOARD=sensortag/cc1350
