Errors: b'arm-none-eabi-objcopy: .application.hex 64-bit address out of range for Intel Hex

Hi there,

I'm using mbed-cli to compile my source code, this is the link, https://os.mbed.com/users/krenbluetoothsig/code/BluetoothLEGap/ I can use mbed online compiler to compile it.

Recently, I would like to use mbed-cli to compile it. After setting up mbed-cli dev environment, I believe that I can compile my source code. After checking out the source code and I tried to compile, but there was an error as mentioned on Subject: "Errors: b'arm-none-eabi-objcopy: .
BUILD
NRF52_DK
GCC_ARM
BluetoothLEGap_application.hex 64-bit address 0x4b4fa300023000 out of range for Intel He"

How can I solve this problem? I think there is memory mapping configuration error, but I don't know how to re-configure it.

Full compiling console is here:

Hi Kai,

We've taken the liberty to edit your post to include the <<code>> and <</code>> tags to improve the legibility. You can check the "Editing tips" for ways to improve formatting.

We think the underlying problem is here:

[Warning] @,: Compiler version mismatch: Have 8.2.1; expected version >= 6.0.0 and < 7.0.0

Officially Mbed supports gcc v6. Could you try dropping down to version 6? It's not clear how 64-bit addresses are being formed - we really doubt a v8-A compiler could get this far building for Mbed, but perhaps.

Here is a link where you can find the v6 2017 Q2 update:

Ralph, Team Mbd

Thanks Ralph, the version of GCC compiler is the problem, following your suggestion, I just fixed it, thanks. I also close this issue on Github, https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os/issues/9265
