Emacs and Make have never looked so good!

Managed to get permission to download LPCExpresso, that was weeks ago. At the time it took a few days and by the time I got permission I'd just started using emacs, gcc-arm and make. So after weeks of coding, and with a lull, I decided that I might go back and try out this IDE. Got it installed but do you think I could get J-Link integrated into the IDE?


Now I know that NXP will point at Segger, and Segger will point at Eclipse, and Eclipse will point at the moon, but a full day later and I'm still no closer to having a working system. The subject line says it all. This has been a wasted day. Actually possibly not entirely wasted I think it might deserve a YouTube video to outline the ease of use, or lack there of.


I'm struggling to install anything because of LPCExpresso's unsatisfied dependencies. Any piece of Software that is smart enough to know that there is an unsatisfied dependency should be smart enough to just go and satisfy it. At present struggling with a missing filesystem 1.6.1 and others. Top google search for that throws up a forum question on eclipse back in 2009, so old it's not even worth looking at. Is LPCExpresso based on Eclipse 2009?
