Reddit: Running AdaCore's GNAT compiler after basic installation

Thursday 24th of November 2016 04:36:20 AM

I'm new to Linux, and have just installed Ubuntu on a VM, and it seems to be working well. I wanted to begin doing cross platform Ada development where Linux is the host, and the target is a Cortex M4 - based microcontroller. There are tutorials for getting this going right away, but I've elected to go the more discrete route as seen in the tutorial I am following:

http://www.inspirel.com/articles/Ada_On_Cortex_First_Program.html

I've got GNAT installed, but I can't call the arm-eabi-gcc compiler. Why would this be? I've even added the path variable to the .bashrc file. I even ran bash to check for syntax errors, and it didn't complain.

the path is: /home/Downloads/arm-elf-linux/adagpl-2016/gnatgpl/gnat-gpl-2016-arm-elf-linux-bin/bin/

Calling gnatmake from anywhere seems to work, but this runs the compiler and linker all at once and I don't want that yet. I want to learn about the build process more carefully by calling the compiler and linker separately to play with the flags and options. (See the inspirel link)

So gnatmake works as a command from anywhere, but why is "arm-eabi-gcc" still not callable?

Any suggestions on what to try next? I'm out of googling ideas, and there are no Linux people within 100 miles of me.

Let me know what I can try next, and I'll give it my best!

Thanks!

Reddit: Real world impact of Wayland for a regular user

Thursday 24th of November 2016 04:01:54 AM

Fedora just officially released Workstation 25 and as publicized, it comes with Wayland as the default windowing protocol over the old X11.

Confession: I have minimal understanding of the nuances of these two protocols. I managed to grasp the importance of why a shift to Wayland was necessary and a long time coming, thanks to this article.

However, as far as real world performance goes, I fail to see how this change benefits me as the average user.

As I understand it, X11 has some inherent problems because of the patch it up as we go along approach, while with Wayland the developers tried to address core issues that made X11 inefficienct.

Will I actually see a difference in performance if I make the switch or is it more of an under the hood optimization that won't be visible to the naked eye?

  • FUDCon Phnom Penh 2016 – day 0

    After a long trip through Venice, Dubai and Saigon I finally arrived to Phnom Penh and the first thought I had was: wow, so hot and humid, that will be fun! At the exit of the airport a Tuk Tuk driver was waiting for me with a nice Fedora banner. He took my luggage and ten seconds later were in the middle of Phnom Penh’s rush hour. I think there is not really a word for it, you need to see the traffic with your eyes to understand that. Although I’m italian and I was several times to Naples and other cities of South Italy, it is nothing compared to Phnom Penh.

TuxMachines: Jolla and Tizen

Thursday 24th of November 2016 03:45:03 AM
  • microG on Jolla

    I am a incorrigibly in picking non-mainstream, open smartphones, and then struggling hard. Back then in 2008, I tried to use the OpenMoko FreeRunner, but eventually gave up because of hardware glitches and reverted to my good old Siemens S35. It was not that I would not be willing to put up with inconveniences, but as soon as it makes live more difficult for the people I communicate with, it becomes hard to sustain.

    Two years ago I tried again, and got myself a Jolla phone, running Sailfish OS. Things are much nicer now: The hardware is mature, battery live is good, and the Android compatibility layer enables me to run many important apps that are hard to replace, especially the Deutsche Bahn Navigator and various messengers, namely Telegram, Facebook Messenger, Threema and GroupMe.

  • New Photo Editor Apps Instatags and Monograph added to the Tizen Store

    A couple of the most wanted apps by Tizen users is a photo editor app has been added to the Tizen store last month. The apps named Instatags and Monograph are created by Arrie Affanto. Both apps are easy to use, have some good features, and don’t take much storage space.

TuxMachines: Android Leftovers

Thursday 24th of November 2016 03:44:09 AM
  • OnePlus 3T review: Picking up where the Google Nexus left off

    Startup phone maker OnePlus has a new flagship Android smartphone. Well, tweaked phone might be more accurate.

    Less than six months after it released the $400 OnePlus 3 to critical acclaim (Mashable's included), OnePlus is back with the OnePlus 3T — a faster and longer-lasting OnePlus 3.

  • The OnePlus 3T makes one of Android’s best bets even better

    OnePlus has always been a people pleaser. It’s an impulse grown, in part, from the hardware startups close connection to a tight-knit fanbase. As other new entrants like Le Eco on the smartphone scene push to be the biggest and flashiest, the company has been producing excellent handsets from the very beginning, devices capable of taking on the top flagships at a fraction of the price.

    But the 3T is a bit of conundrum. It’s certainly in keeping with OnePlus’s focus on quality, but for those who went all in with the company’s last flagship a few months back, the phone may feel like a small-scale betrayal, upping the specs and entirely replacing the phone half-a-year after its introduction.

  • 10 Ways to Trick Out Your Android Home Screen

    One of the advantages of choosing a shiny new Android phone over those Apple handsets is the extra scope for home screen customization. If you’re stuck for inspiration or wondering how to get started, here are 10 ways of tricking out your home screen and other parts of the Android OS.

  • Huawei Leapfrogs Samsung to Become World’s Most Profitable Android Device Maker

    The explosive woes of Samsung’s defective Galaxy Note 7 franchise have helped catapult China’s Huawei past the South Korean conglomerate as the most profitable Android smartphone manufacturer in the world. Apple aapl continues to remain the most profitable of all smartphone makers with a staggering 91% operating profit market share.

  • This is the 'Glossy Black' Galaxy S7 Edge, coming soon

    A couple of days ago we told you about the possibility of a “Glossy Black” Galaxy S7 Edge in the works. Just 48 hours later and the first images of that upcoming device have now appeared on Chinese microblogging site, Weibo. The photos show a very shiny, very sexy S7 Edge that’s quite similar to the Olympics Games edition, but without the accents.

    The baby blue version of the Galaxy S7 Edge is now available across all U.S. carriers, but the new shiny black version is expected to arrive in December sometime. We would expect it to arrive as early as possible though, to give it the best chance of being snapped up in time for the holiday buying frenzy.

Ubuntu Core has the keys to IoT security

In October, a DDoS attack on Dyn's infrastructure took down a big chunk of the internet, making sites like Amazon and Twitter inaccessible. It was the first major attack involving IoT (internet of things) devices. Fortunately, it was also a benign attack: no one got hurt, no one died. However, the next attack could be catastrophic. No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
