Hi Marie Reine,

such questions should be posted to the ELDK mailing list which I added
on CC.

Isn't there a fix for the driver available?  The gcc version in ELDK up
to now worked pretty well..

Rebuilding the toolchain in ELDK is a non-trivial operation and very
likely requires you to setup a build environment which allows this.
There is an application note on our server[1] which describes an easy
way to do this.  From there it is rebuilding an eldt package[2].

Keep us posted if you are successful.

Best wishes
