Unable to compile Custom Core Sketch

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to compile the Custom Core Sketch from the tutorial here.

(refer 1st video at about 4:30)

 

The error I am getting is:

      0 [main] cp 1536 find_fast_cwd: WARNING: Couldn't compute FAST_CWD pointer.  Please report this problem to

Under boards I have selected the Papilio Custom Bit File and I am using the ZAP IDE. I've been stuck because of this since yesterday. Any advice would be helpful.

Are you running Windows 8?

 

If so then the problem you are running into is that Windows 8 broke the cygwin tools... Will need to upgrade the cygwin tools to the latest version as is used in DesignLab.

 

Jack.
