Toolchain for SDK and examples (96TOF-EBZ)

I would like to build and experiment with the examples provided in the 96TOF1-EBZ dev kit.  I initially tried this by building on the embedded target (SDK and then examples), but was getting stalled while trying to build the SDK (embedded O/S stalls during the build...guessing it's out of resources or such).  

What have others found to be effective? Are you using a desktop-based toolchain and pushing binaries to the target or are you running the client-server mode and compiling for the desktop, or something else?  Or perhaps I should be able to build the SDK and examples all on the embedded processor after all?

I welcome your input on this.

    Normally there shouldn't be any issues building the SDK on the embedded platform, that's what we do all the time. Did you follow the steps from here?


  • Thanks,  Andrei. 

    Yes, that's exactly what I've been attempting.  It updates, grabs sources, and begins to execute the build script just fine, but appears to hit a core stall somewhere in the build of one of the libraries.  Maybe my hardware/board has some weaknesses.  I reloaded the O/S a time or two, grabbed the latest build, etc.  

    Thanks for confirming the routine use of build-on-target.  It helps to know that I wasn't attempting something outside of the design/intent.
