Tested with ti-cgt-arm and ti-ble-sdk, with example project cc2650lp/simple_broadcaster: import, build, and flash onto launchpad works (note: flash tested only with ti-cgt-arm 5.9.4, build succeeds with 18.1.1). Also, tested the basics with ti-cgt-msp430 and MSP430FR5994 launchpad.

Tip: CCS keeps state in ~/.ti (and /root/.ti if you run it via sudo ever) and it adds files to /opt/ti/ccstudio/ccsv7, so if you remove the package to reinstall, then please clear all this state. Tip: CCS fails to startup with a permissions error, when run as a normal user after having run as root (even with different workspace): delete /tmp/browsercore-*/. The reported error is: Permission denied ... com.teamdev.jxbrowser.chromium.internal.FileUtil ...

Known issue: updates from within CCS: some work some don't:

One problem is a permissions issue (CCS attempts to do stuff in /build): this can be worked around by running CCS as root to do the install.

Second problem is that the installer puts the files into ccstudio/ccsv7/eclipse/features instead of into ccstudio/ccsv7/tools/compiler, and CCS doesn't detect the compiler there (so, it lists the compiler as installed, but it's not available when creating projects, etc.). So, use the ti-cgt-* packages from AUR. Install the packages while CCS is shut down, and then run CCS as root for the first time.

@dwzg: doesn't seem to be related to the package itself: the package doesn't ever run chmod on the top-level directory. Can you tell yay to build fresh? I don't use yay, but if it keeps state for the package, something went wrong with that state. Perhaps: sudo rm ~/.cache/yay/ccstudio, and try installing fresh.

While trying to update ccstudio from 9.1. to 9.2 with yay I get the following error message, which also stops the update process:

"chmod: changing permissions of '/home/dwzg/.cache/yay/ccstudio/src': Operation not permitted"

Apparently chmod lacks the required permission, but running yay as sudo is not possible. Any recommendation how to resolve this problem?

@mchwalisz: pushed rename workaround. Thanks.

There is a file conflict with jlink-software-and-documentation

/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/99-jlink.rules exists in both packages and block an upgrade.

The issue with full unattended (no GUI) installation is now fixed by adding a dep.

v8.0.0.00016: installers for some components (C6000 at least) still hang (likely due to the glibc version incompatibility, since those installers are older than the main CCS installer). To work around, had to switch to GUI installer in order to let the user select which components to install. MSP430, TM4C, CC installed fine for me.

The glibc 2.27 is available for a while, so CCSv8 should work already.

alaxei, update the PKGBUILD, please.

For v8, will have to wait until Arch updates to glibc 2.27. The installer hangs again (and the TI wiki does say that it's not compatible with 2.26). One really needs to try hard to end up depending on specific versions of glibc in a tool that just needs to copy some files from an archive into the system, but they did it.

Installs fine, works fine as of today.

However, there is a CCS 8.0 available since Mar 09, 2018.

alexei, would it be possible to update the PKGBUILD to install that one? There are issues in 7.x importing 6.x projects which 8.x fixes so that would make sense for some people.

Thank you!

Version 7.4 solves glibc dependency.
