# (Replace n.n.n.n by the actual IP address that you read)
ssh pi@n.n.n.n / password : raspberry
sudo apt-get update # (Need to update the Raspbian update caches to get git)
sudo apt-get install git uuid uuid-dev libssl-dev
git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/tcf/org.eclipse.tcf.agent.git
cd org.eclipse.tcf.agent/agent
cp -R machine/arm machine/armv6l

I need to verify the above procedure IF IT IS VALID to install TCF on Raspberry Pi Zero.



This procedure appears to be a copy of one which was published by YAKINDU (?) and NEVER actually specifies the BCM processor TCF Agent is being installed on - just uses generic "Raspberry".

It is published here https://wiki.eclipse.org/TCF/Raspberry_Pin by Eclipse so I am posting it here and NOT in dead TCF forum

Other than the output showing up at obj/GNU/Linux/arm/Debug/agent, yes it compiles fine. I don't
know if the GPIO ports map any differently, but for most software the Pi Zero is identical to the
original Pi.

The "raspberry" above is the default password for the default user, "pi", in the Raspbian Linux
distribution.

From what I can tell, the TCF team prefers to you ask questions using their mailing list.
https://www.eclipse.org/tcf/support.php does not even mention the forum.

Thanks for reply.
I am actually y just trying to implement "hello world" on RPi Zero.
No GPIO , not yet.
The "developer" site did not want to communicate with me - they limit themselves only to "developers ".,
I am running full blown C++ program on RPi 3B via TCF , no problem whatsoever.

The issue is - how to make TCF work on Zero.
I can change the compiler / linker options , compile / link without any errors, but it just wont run on Zero.

I need to find where / what is missing.

TCF installation or crosscompiler results?

It seems to me there is a fair bit of activity in TCF:

https://git.eclipse.org/c/tcf/org.eclipse.tcf.git/log/
https://git.eclipse.org/c/tcf/org.eclipse.tcf.agent.git/log/

Thanks
Interesting activities - managed by whom?
I shall look if I can get on "the list" .

Perhaps I am not the only victim using TCF,
but it does not make me feel any better.

Cheers

You'll have to ask the developers who manage them; perhaps there are no managers, only inmates. :-)

Short update in case anybody else is foolish to try to crosscompile TCF C++ code ,using Eclipse , to actually run on Raspberry Pi Zero armv6 hardware.
Do not do it - "resistance is futile " you will be forced to use arm7 hardware !

CASE CLOSED.
