I am running Mint 13 which does have some differences in the default libraries than Ubuntu.
Since there's no obvious reason my system to not work as yours does, my guess is that there is some library that
I'm missing and which doesn't raise any exceptions....
Do you know of a way to compare the relevant packages...?
Thanks vloki for all your help...
UPDATE: It works...!! at least I was able to choose SDCC tool chain.....I was getting confused how the original setup was, so I uninstalled and started fresh.
I had to use the debugged version of the SDCC jar that vloki provides...I am very grateful for your time and energy.
I hope to be posting here with more interesting news and questions now....my uC adventure begins....
