Has anybody tried the ESP8266 tool chain on the new version of the IDE ?
Using Version 0.10.5 on Linux Mint 18.2. on a 64 bit machine.
Have loaded correct version of Java (1.8.0_191).
IDE works with Arduino Mega 256 - no problems in compiling and downloading test program (Blink).
When attempting to compile test program for "Wemos R1 R2 & mini" fails at Linking sketch stage fails with the following error message :
• Converting binary files
• Compiling sketch...
• Compiling core...
• Compiling libraries...
• Linking sketch...
/home/xxxx/.uecide/compilers/xtensa-lx106-elf/bin/../lib/gcc/xtensa-lx106-elf/4.8.2/../../../../xtensa-lx106-elf/bin/ld: cannot open linker script file -Wl,--gc-sections: No such file or directory
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Does anyone have a explanation for the above ?
Is it something I have either done or neglected to do, such as
1. Not selected and downloaded the correct ESP8266 options.
2. Are there further compile / linker options to be specified.
Since first contemplating this post I have got the test sample program to compile and download using a). ESPressif tools and b). Arduino IDE (1.8.8) separately.
I now suspect that this is due to a linker script file of the form "eagle.app.v6.xxx.ld" not being found or not installed.
Where should this file (and other linker files) be located ?
Is there a specific configuration file that needs to be amended to solve this problem ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
