Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 7
Component/s: Toolchain
Host OS: Windows 7
Architecture: PowerPC


When loading the environment-setup-powerpc-nf-linux.bat or environment-setup-ppc476-nf-linux.bat file, an error may occur similar to:


export CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH="\sysroots\ppc476-nf-linux\usr\include\c++\4.9.1\powerpc-windriverppc476nf-linux"

'export' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.


Edit the environment-setup-*.bat file, and change the line:

export CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH="\sysroots\powerpc-nf-linux\usr\include\c++\4.9.1\powerpc-windrivernf-linux"


Apply attached patch to wr-sdk-toolchain layer.

set CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH=%SDKROOT%sysroots\powerpc-nf-linux\usr\include\c++\4.9.1\powerpc-windrivernf-linux

(be sure the path after the 'sysroots' remains the same before and after the workaround)

Steps to Reproduce

Build a Windows (mingw32) SDK for power-nf or ppc476-nf.

Install the SDK, and then run the environment batch file.
