This is yet another question I am not sure where to post it.
Feel free to redirect me.

I have made painful progress getting software from github to Eclipse workspace.

The issue is - the cloned software includes its OWN copy of makefile.
That makefile ties the actual application ( run) with embedded OS .

The Eclipse EGit plug-in created plain Eclipse C project for the application.
Running "Build" ( project) builds its own makefile and runs "make". Normal process.


When I make test changes in Eclipse project I have to save it and then run "make" in local repository - on my cloned copy of the original; code.
It works fine.
( nothing to do with git commit )

Then I have to do "Build" on Eclipse proejct - it compiles / links fine.
Then I can run as "local C/C++ code".
Works as expected.

Is there a way to make it work so I have to change / update ONE makefile only and have BOTH Eclipse project and repository makefiles updated?

It sounds like you're saying that CDT created a makefile for a C/C++ project and that this is a different makefile than the one you already have elsewhere in the file tree. It sounds like you want to somehow combine these two makefiles into a single file. All such questions about how to manage the makefile are best asked on the CDT forum because no one on this forum is likely to have such expertise...

SOLVED
When using EGit created protect by running "Build Project" the process is smart enough NOT to create another "makefile" but uses one cloned to local Git repository.
Found by attempting to change compiler options.
Since I may need to add another options to the makefile I need to find where they are set in orignal source.
