GNU GCC Compiler for Android
« on: October 29, 2018, 01:09:06 pm »
Hello,

I'm trying to compile my programs (unsing the SDL library) for another plateforms than Windows, like Android or iOS.

I set up the search directories  for the "GNU GCC Compiler for Android" as previously, i. e. for the "GNU GCC Compiler", that got no problems.

When I try to rebuild the entire project, I get the following message :

Tried to run compiler executable 'C:\ndk/bin/arm-linux-androideabi-gcc.exe', but failed!
Tried to run compiler executable 'C:\ndk/arm-linux-androideabi-gcc.exe', but failed!

I read it could be an error in the name or in the path, and I actually noticed there isn't any folder named "ndk" in "C:\" folder. So I looked for but the files explorer found nothing.

I just re-installed c::b 17.12 with mingw (the older version didn't included that compiler for Android), the older linking parameters had been kept. I didn't place it in the default folder ("program file (x86)"), perhaps should I ? In that case, why can I change the installation folder ?

Thanks for answer !

Where do you have installed the compiler?
What is the path to this compiler?
What have you set in the compiler settings and where?
What have you entered in Settings->Compiler->Select your android compiler from drop down menu->toolchain executables->path?

Codeblocks does not ship with the android compiler... You have to install it by yourself

Where do you keep your Android NDK?
To make it work again, select the appropriate compiler from the list (see Settings → Compiler → Global → Selected compiler) and correct its file paths (Settings → Compiler → Global → Toolchain executables) to the ones you actually have in your system.
Just simply reinstalling C::B won`t help, as it doesn`t ship equipped with an Android compiler.

Thanks for answering !

->  The compiler is installed in the default folder : C:\MinGW\mingw32-gcc.exe in Toolchain executable (for "GNU GCC Compiler") and for the other, C:\ndk\arm-linux-androideabi-gcc.exe is written

-> In Linker settings - Other link options: -lSDL2main -lSDL2 [and ttf, image and mixer]

-> Settings - Compiler - toolchain executables - path : C:\ndk

But I hadn't downloaded any android compiler, I saw there was "GNU GCC Compiler for android" on my friend's c::b newest version, then I tought I could compile my programs just using an updated c::b version (that compiler wasn't included on mine).

I'm going to loofk for an android compiler on the web, and then install it in the good folder...
