The release notes on XDCTools v3.30 are clear on the fact that '*.targets.*' packages have been moved out of the XDCTools distribution. The various microcontroller targets (e.g. ARM, MSP430) are all in respective bundles of TI-RTOS. But, where is the x86 targets package? So far I've only seen it in the legacy distribution of XDCTools (either the standalone or bundled inside the TI-RTOS v1 distributive). But, using legacy sounds wrong.

What non-legacy distribution contains the x86 targets package ('gnu.targets.rts86U', etc.)? Or, is there a 'full' non-legacy distribution that contains all target packages? I would get that plus XDCTools Core. Thank you.

UPDATE: Hm, looks like this is more subtle. The package I ought to have been looking for is 'gnu.targets.Linux86', which does exist in in 'bios' product bundled with TIRTOS TivaC distribution. This answers the above question. However, this package references 'gnu.targets.rts86U' (see 'rts' property in Linux86.xdc), which is not in the TI-RTOS distribution. My revised question is now similar to the above except specifically for 'gnu.targets.rts86U': which non-legacy distribution is it shipped in?

Alexei,
we found out recently that we dropped the ball on the host targets when we moved targets to TI_RTOS. We may have a separate product that delivers only targets and platforms, but that's not available yet.
The only immediate solution is to stick to 3.30.01.25, which still offers all targets adn platforms and you can get it here:

I should have used XDCTools v3.30 non-core distribution for everything, instead of going the following roundabout way. Here's what I actually ended up doing shortly after posting the question.

I ended up getting the gnu. targets.Linux86 from SYSBIOS distribution bundled inside TI-RTOS v2.00.01.23 for Tiva C (i.e. its newest undeprecated place) and gnu.targets.rts86U from the XDCTools v3.25.05.94, but copied the latter using repoman and rebuilt using XDCTools v3.30.04.52 Core, because the one (pre-)built using the prior version v3.25 failed to link with the application. I should have tried XDCTools v3.30 (Tiva C) instead of going back to v3.25, but I had the latter installed already, so I went the route of pulling rts86U out of it..

xs xdc.tools.repoman -c -p xdctools_v3.25/packages -r rts/packages gnu.targets.rts86U
cd rts/packages/gnu/rts/rts86U
xdc clean
xdc XDCPATH=bios/packages all

Sidenote: using XDCTools v3.25 for everything hit the 'internal compiler error problem': h t t p s://www . eclipse . org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=833329&goto=1449635&#msg_1449635
