Make error?

Posted by Leon Freimour on August 15, 2012

Got all the examples working but then the hard drive crashed so got to reinstall again! :( Seems like the makefile is adding a txt file?

c:/nxp/lpcxpresso_4.2.3_292/lpcxpresso/tools/bin/../lib/gcc/arm-none-eabi/4.5.1/../../../../arm-none-eabi/bin/ld.exe: Example01.axf section `.text' will not fit in region `MFlash512'
c:/nxp/lpcxpresso_4.2.3_292/lpcxpresso/tools/bin/../lib/gcc/arm-none-eabi/4.5.1/../../../../arm-none-eabi/bin/ld.exe: region `MFlash512' overflowed by 8128 bytes

Are you talking about the examples that come with the LPC17xx book?

"text" probably refers to the linker section that holds the executable code, it is not a text file.

Hi Richard ,

Yes compiling example1 , the make looks find. This is error message is strange thou "section `.text' will not fit in region `MFlash512' Also I did not have a lpc1769 connected just building?

It sounds like either the image being built is too large for the flash (which it shouldn't be, it is really, really tiny), or the linker script and GCC thinks there is a lot less flash memory than there is.

Are you sure the demos are exactly as originally delivered - with no modifications? If not, can you go back to an original copy and try with that.
