Hi genesiscircle,

hi ahoffmann
the cris compiler is in /usr/local/cris/bin
the s/w distribution is in /etc/devboard-R2_01
and i ve created a folder in apps as hello and i ve a sample file hello.c in it.
so the path is like /etc/devboard-R2_01/apps/hello/hello.c
the makefile is also inside the folder hello
to create the object file i issued the command make cris-axis-linux-gnu
it worked well for the first time and the object file was also created the second time is says error

in the make file the target i ve used is
include $(AXIS_TOP_DIR)/tools/buid/Rules.axis
the result of id && ls -l /tools/build/Rules.axis  is

[root@localhost hello]# id && ls -l /tools/build/Rules.axis
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel)
ls: /tools/build/Rules.axis: No such file or directory
waiting for ur reply

sounds like you need to set $(AXIS_TOP_DIR)
either as environment variable in your shell (and export it), or in the Makefile itself. I guess the latter.
