Eclipse - Cannot create a C project

I don't have the option to create a new C project  I tried the following:

The recommended way to install this plug-in is to use the Eclipse standard install/update mechanism:

Eclipse menu: Help → Install New Software

in the Install window, click the Add... button (on future updates, just select the URL)

fill in Location: with http://gnuarmeclipse.sourceforge.net/updates

click the OK button

the main window will list There are no categorized items

disable the Group items by category option

in the main window, select the GNU ARM C/C++ Development Support

click the Next button

accept the unsigned plug-in

Once you define the update site URL, further updates are greatly simplified (Help -> Check For Updates).

Still no luck, When I choose New Project I get two choices 1)general or 2)CVS.

Please use special "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers"( download, unpack it and run).
There Cross GCC option should be selected and then - configured : it is needed to provide

path for cross compiler (/opt/freescale/ .... ) and so on...

I'd like to get HelloWorld working on the imx53 before digging deeper.

I installed QT but I'm sure I didn;t install the SDK which is what I

think I need. Attached is a piece of code I was trying to compile and I

get a few errors. GTK cannot be found along with crypto and ssl. I

believe i have to add something in the make file to find these? I'm not

really sure, I'll do some work tomorrow to get a better undertanding of

how this make file is working. I will put a few hours in tomorrow

night, should be your Monday. I would like to start with getting the

hello world working on the imx53.

I have eclipse creating a c project, thanks. I need to tell it where

the gcc and the tool chain is located.

In the make file is the "#" comments?

Talk to you soon

Leonard
