Hi all,

Recently, I try to build ARM7_LPC2368_Eclipse project using Eclipse+Yagarto and

found this error message :

error: no memory region specified for loadable section `.eh_frame’

In Yagarto’s site, it’s said that I have to add following part to linker file

lpc2368.ld :

. = ALIGN(4);
.eh_frame :
     KEEP (*(.eh_frame))
} > ram

but the problem is, I’m not really sure where exactly should I put it in my

lpc2368.ld file. So, I take my chances by put it somewhere in SECTIONS { } part

of the file and got this error messages :

c:/program files/yagarto/bin/…/lib/gcc/arm-elf/4.4.1/…/…/…/…/arm-

elf/bin/ld.exe: RTOSDemo.elf section .eh_frame will not fit in region ram
c:/program files/yagarto/bin/…/lib/gcc/arm-elf/4.4.1/…/…/…/…/arm-

elf/bin/ld.exe: region ram overflowed by 7200 bytes
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: ***  Error 1

Can anyone help me? Thank you.

The problem is the new version of GCC that the latest version of Yagarto uses.  Take the makefile and linker script out of the SVN repository (FreeRTOS V6.0.0) and you should find it compiles fine, although I have not tried actually running with the changes.

Also be aware that the version of binutils used has problems with ARM/THUMB interworking.  I would stick to ARM mode until it is fixed in GCC.
