Even if I change only one file, make rebuilds the whole project which takes forever. Could there be a date format incompatibility of which I am unaware?
Using KMS so cannot change environment. I must use KDS3.2 and KDSK 1.3
I seem to have solved it, have no idea why but this worked - but I used some hints from previous posts.
Instead of using external build I used eclipse's internal build. This did a full compile the first time, as expected, but did not create the elf file.
So, I reverted to the external build option, and voila! it is correctly doing incremental builds now. 20sec versus 5 or so minutes.
Can you check your project settings? Maybe the refresh policy is not set correctly, see Eclipse Project ‘Refresh Policy’: Broken Incremental Build with External Make? | MCU on Eclipse
