first time user having problems with make and basic setup of GCC

Asked by Ray Grauberger on 2017-12-07

I am following an example for the Nordic nRF52832 SOC. is the web link to instructions and source. I keep getting file not found and the make command listed at the bottom of the instructions do not work. I have hacked my way thru the makefile but I believe I have environment variable issues. I also had to download a non GCC make executable.

Here is my output when I try to build

Compiling file: app_error.c

Im not sure if this is an arm-gcc issue or some issue with the build. A quick browse of the link above suggests app_error.c is not part of the dir tree.

If you could provide us a self-contained tarball of sources that we can use to quickly reproduce the error, it would be better than us trying to bring up the build from scratch. Thanks.

Can you help with this problem?
