Installing GCC-arm for use with Nordic nRF8122 nRF5_SDK_11.0.0_89a8197

nRF51822 BoardSo, this is really just my notes for installing it again next time.  If it helps, great.

Per Nordic’s documentation/release_notes.txt, the library is compiled using a slightly older version so we’ll stick to that here.

cd ~/Downloads
wget "http://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/5.0/5-2015-q1-major/+download/gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_9-2015q1-20150306-linux.tar.bz2"
sudo bash
cd /usr/local/
tar -xjvf /home/user/Downloads/gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_9-2015q1-20150306-linux.tar.bz2

That’s it.

Installing the Library is equally easy:

cd ~/Downloads
wget "http://developer.nordicsemi.com/nRF5_SDK/nRF5_SDK_v11.x.x/nRF5_SDK_11.0.0_89a8197.zip"
mkdir nRF5_SDK_11.0.0_89a8197
cd nRF5_SDK_11.0.0_89a8197
unzip ../nRF5_SDK_11.0.0_89a8197.zip

To compile the proximity example:

cd nRF5_SDK_11.0.0_89a8197/examples/ble_peripheral/ble_app_proximity/pca10028/s130/armgcc
make
