Is the ST NUCLEO F401RE board unsupported? Am I doing something wrong?

I followed this tutorial very closely, with no success. First, I installed gcc-arm-none-eabi from here: https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/4.7/4.7-2012-q4-major. Then, I did the following:

Initial setup:

$ git clone https://github.com/mbedmicro/mbed
$ cd mbed/workspace_tools
$ cp settings.py private_settings.py
$ vim private_settings.py

I only changed the ARM_PATH and GCC_ARM_PATH directories in the file, as shown in lines 7 and 18 below:

private_settings.py

# ARM
armcc = "standalone" # "keil", or "standalone", or "ds-5"

if armcc == "keil":
# [...]
elif armcc == "standalone":
    ARM_PATH = "/home/user/Downloads/gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_7-2012q4"
    ARM_BIN = join(ARM_PATH, "bin")
    ARM_INC = join(ARM_PATH, "include")
    ARM_LIB    = join(ARM_PATH, "lib")

elif armcc == "ds-5":
# [...]
ARM_CPPLIB = join(ARM_LIB, "cpplib")
MY_ARM_CLIB = join(ARM_PATH, "lib", "microlib")

# GCC ARM
GCC_ARM_PATH = "/home/user/Downloads/gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_7-2012q4"

Then I tried to build, but it failed.

$ python build.py -m NUCLEO_F401RE -t GCC_ARM | less

Since startup_STM32F40x.s wasn't found, I searched for it from the repository's root:

./libraries/mbed/targets/cmsis/TARGET_STM/TARGET_NUCLEO_F401RE/TOOLCHAIN_GCC_ARM/startup_STM32F40x.s
./libraries/mbed/targets/cmsis/TARGET_STM/TARGET_STM32F4XX/TOOLCHAIN_ARM_STD/startup_STM32F40x.s
./libraries/mbed/targets/cmsis/TARGET_STM/TARGET_STM32F4XX/TOOLCHAIN_GCC_ARM/startup_STM32F40x.s

Notice that the first result contains TARGET_NUCLEO_F401RE in the directory.

What can I do from here? I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit) in case that matters. Thanks in advance.

Question relating to:

Hi Matt, your gcc path should be GCC_ARM_PATH = "/home/user/Downloads/gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_7-2012q4/bin"

After changing the path, I got this output:

$ python build.py -m NUCLEO_F401RE -t GCC_ARM

Please help?

I'm having the same issue, did you find the solution?

I am using next

arm-none-eabi-gcc version arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe (GNU Tools for ARM Embedded Processors) 4.8.3 20131129 (release) [ARM/embedded-4_8-branch revision 205641]

and everything is OK for this board.
