Thanks for the bug report. That's a bug in the packaging indeed. That file ought to be in host-specific path like the native compiler does (/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/5/libcc1.so) and probably in a toolchain specific path (ie. gcc-arm-embedded should appear in the path). We'll look into that but that might have to wait for next release so that we can properly validate the change.

Best regards.

Changed in gcc-arm-embedded:

Hi ,

As of today, I faced the same issue. Is there any update?


Hi Nabil,

We are evaluating the extent of the changes needed and the risk associated with them Vs the impact of that bug. Depending on that analysis we might decide to wait for the next major release to fix it.

Best regards.
