Building the gnometris project from the command line

gnometris is an Arm® Linux application that you can run and debug on your target. The supplied project contains prebuilt image binaries. Use these instructions to rebuild the project from the command line.


  1. Download the DS-5 Linux distribution examples ( and extract it into the working directory.
  2. Extract the contents of the archive file located in DS-5_install_directory/examples/ into the working directory. This zip file includes the gnometris example project source.
  3. Open the DS-5 Command Prompt command-line console or a Unix bash shell.
  4. Navigate to ../<working-directory>/gnometris.
  5. At the prompt, enter make.

    The gnometris example contains a Makefile to build the project. The Makefile provides the usual make rules: clean, all, and rebuild.

When you build the gnometris project, it produces the following applications:

  • A stripped version of the application containing no debug information. This is for downloading to the target.
  • A larger sized version of the application containing full debug information for use by the debugger when debugging at the source level.
