I'm facing this compilation issue.

Arduino: 1.8.4 (Linux), Board: "Intel® Edison"

fork/exec /home/jimish/.arduino15/packages/Intel/tools/core2-32-poky-linux/1.6.2+1.0/i686/sysroots/pokysdk/usr/bin/i586-poky-linux/i586-poky-linux-g++: no such file or directory Error compiling for board Intel® Edison.

Arduino IDE: Arduino IDE

Web IDE: Web IDE

  • I've already pasted error there. The pictures are proof, that it's not a fault of my local machine or local ide. @jsotola Commented Apr 5, 2018 at 5:30
  • @JimishFotariya - Have you tried to access this file from the command line? Usually its just a path issue. Commented Apr 5, 2018 at 12:09
  • @code-gorilla No i haven't tried that. But web-editor compiles on their server so I think it is a bug in original source. Commented Apr 9, 2018 at 6:50
  • This sounds like something you need to pursue with the creators of this non-Arduino toolchain. Either you have a broken install (does the file even exist?) or (if it is there but won't run) an issue like a 32 bit executable that won't run on a 64 bit system unless you install the optional 32-bit system libraries package.

The problem here is that Intel, in their infinite wisdom* have lots of hard-coded paths to libraries in the binaries (why, heaven only knows) and then a set of scripts that munge those binaries to sort out where the libraries really are.

That script uses an option to find that was deprecated 13 years ago.

Way to keep up with the times, Intel...

So you need to make some fixes to get the toolchain to install properly.

I have created "fix" scripts for both the Edison and the Galileo that you can use to replace your broken toolchain.
