As I've said, such type gets duplicated when compiling a project. From the info that the compiler spits out it seems to be a problem with board.h and chip.h inclusion files. This is the error output:

../src/project1.cpp:36:2: error: 'uint8_t' redeclared as different kind of symbol
  uint8_t val,
In file included from /usr/local/lpcxpresso_7.2.0_153/lpcxpresso/tools/lib/gcc/arm-none-eabi/4.8.3/include/stdint.h:9:0,
                 from /home/xavier76/LPC1549_WS/lpc_chip_15xx/inc/lpc_types.h:35,
                 from /home/xavier76/LPC1549_WS/lpc_chip_15xx/inc/chip.h:32,

                 from ../src/project1.cpp:21:
/usr/local/lpcxpresso_7.2.0_153/lpcxpresso/tools/arm-none-eabi/include/stdint.h:42:19: error: previous declaration of 'typedef __uint8_t uint8_t'
typedef __uint8_t uint8_t ;

And this is the source code that fails to compile:

*  project1.cpp cropped source code

#include "board.h" /***** Line (21) *****/
#include <cr_section_macros.h>

typedef enum
Err_OK = 0,
} Error_E;

typedef enum
uint8_t val, /***** Line (36) *****/
Error_E error,
} RetVal_Type;

// And from here there are a lot of errors because uint8_t type duplication

Any ideas? Thank you in advanced :)
