Bug Description

The GNU C compiler targeted for the MSP430 architecture.

This package would be the GNU C compiler targeted for the MSP430 architecture, a fairly portable optimizing compiler which supports multiple languages. This package includes support for C. The programs in this package are used to compile object files that have been created for the Texas Instruments MSP430 architecture.

This package is primarily for MSP430 developers and cross-compilers and is not needed by normal users or developers.

http://mspgcc.sourceforge.net/

Note: This package would be created by taking the gcc-core-3.2.3 upstream source from GNU and applying patches from the mspgcc project to create a Cross Compiling version of GNU gcc for the MSP430 architecture. This would create a stable cross compiler.

Hi,

   I had changed the package name while I was reporting the ITP. First I
thought about "gcc-msp430", but since the package will contain gcc,
binutils and libc, I think "msp430-tools" would be a better name. I
changed the package name in the body of the message, but forgot to
change in the "subject" like.

   There was a bug in my bugreport. I need a BTS for myself!!! :-)

   In the future, if someuser would like splited packages, I could make
"gcc-msp430", "binutils-msp430" and "libc-msp430"; and "msp430-tools"
could be a fake package that depends on these three ones.

   Bye,
    Pedro

Maybe it's just me, but please don't package stuff until at least
Beta (unless it is _badly_ needed or something).. Alpha is too
early IMO considering the large number of packages already
avaialble.

Anyway, please make sure that it at least work :)

retitle 137712 RFP: gcc-msp430 -- gcc for Texas Instruments msp430 microcontrollers
thanks

Do not have enough time to do a good packaging work. Sorry.
Will retitle to RFP.

Hello,

This is an automatic mail sent to close the RFP you have reported or
are involved with.

Your RFP wnpp bug is being closed because of the following reasons:
- It is, as of today, older than 600 days.
- It haven't had any activity recently.
- The amount of ITPs on the Debian BTS is huge and we need to
  clean up a bit the place.

As this an automatic procedure, it could of course have something
wrong and probably it would be closing some bugs that are not
intended by owners and submitters (like you) to be closed, for
example if the RFP is still of your interest, or there has been
some kind of activity around it. In that case, please reopen the
bug, do it, DO IT NOW! (I don't want to be blamed because of
mass closing and not let people know that they can easily reopen
their bugs ;-).

To re-open it, you simply have to mail <email address hidden>
with a body text like this:

reopen 123456
thanks bts

Replacing '123456' for the number of your RFP bug. The subject of the
mail is ignored. Or if you have any kind of problems when dealing with
the BTS, feel free to contact me and I'd be more than happy to help
you on this: <email address hidden>.

This is the first mass wnpp closing that will be done. The next close
will be done on inactive RFPs older than 450 days and finally, the
ones older than 365 days (an automatic script will close *inactive*
RFPs when they reach one year old).

A similar process is being applied to the ITP wnpp bugs in these
days.

Thanks for your cooperation,

I have done some work on this and I have packages now at https://launchpad.net/~adamhorden/+archive/msp430 that have been built and alpha tested. These packages are built from either CVS sources or SVN sources via a custom mirror system. Work still needs to be done but I have working packages.

Have a look at this:

http://mspgcc4.sourceforge.net/

It is a new project developing on mspgccs sourcecode. The difference to "normal mspgcc" is that they take new gcc releases (4 and above).

A test compilation of their sourcecode returned no error.

I am going to build deb-pakages soon.
