I have the MPC8544DS with
o CW Dev Studio, Power Arch v8.8 - SP1 for 837x, build 90107
o Windows CW IDE 5.9.0 build 2521
I would like to create a project using the latest denx.de U-boot source. I built the U-boot ELF image and flashed the DS eeprom. It comes up just fine on the MPC8544DS, (although the U-boot Flattened Device Tree needed some hand tweaking). I would like to create a project to debug the U-boot source in preparation for our target board. It seems the 'Makefile Importer Wizard' would be ideal for this purpose. However I do not see the option is available in the 'File->New' drop down menu.
I enabled the 'All Info' level for 'Plugin Diagnostics' in 'Edit->IDE Preferences->IDE Startup' and checked for a DLL startup in the output file. Nothing is reporting any errors. It seems the application is missing. Is this option not available for the Power architecture?
Any other resource information/caveats/hints, etc., for this type of project would be appreciated.
