Bug Description

Over at: https://answers.launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/+question/665673

a developer requested a ping when 18.04 Bio Beaver is released. It was released on April 26, 2018 (at least for Ubuntu Studio). I believe this is the proper time for the ping!

I've just gone to try to install it, command line is below.

Thank you very much.

diydsp@Zillini:~/$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-gcc-arm-embedded/ppa
 This PPA is an alternative to toolchain released at https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded. The source codes for both are same. Currently supports Ubuntu 10.04/12.04/14.04/14.10 32 and 64 bit.

Detailed explanations to Launchpad PPA can be found at https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/. That website explains how a PPA is set up and how to add existing PPA and install software from it.

Here are quick steps to install toolchain from this PPA on Ubuntu before 14.04:

Step1: Inside Ubuntu, open a terminal and input
       "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-gcc-arm-embedded/ppa"

Step2: Continue to input
       "sudo apt-get update"

Step3: Continue to input to install toolchain
       "sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-embedded"

To remove installed toolchain, just input "sudo apt-get remove gnu-arm-embedded".
To update the toolchain, just repeat above step2 and step3.

If it reports error message of conflict to gcc-arm-none-eabi, which is likely if upgrading from 4.x to 5+, please uninstall it first with:
       "sudo apt-get remove gcc-arm-none-eabi"

This bug report seems to have gone unnoticed. Is there a tentative release date for the toolchain? My project depends on it, and it would be great, if I didn't have to use hackish workarounds.


We need this too. I'm not even sure what the hackish workarounds are. The problem is conflated by


so the default

sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-none-eabi

doesn't result in a working compiler/linker either.

I've just uploaded it. Give it 2 hours to build and it should be available.
