“make all” terminated with exit code 2. Build might be incomplete.

I am sorry you are having trouble programming the Wixel using Eclipse.

The error you are getting makes me think that Eclipse is running Make in the wrong directory. It needs to run Make in the directory containing your copy of the Wixel SDK. If it does that, then Make should find the file named Makefile that comes with the Wixel SDK, and this file defines the target named all that Make is currently failing to find. I recommend double checking that you have configured Eclipse to use the correct project location, as described in the Wixel user’s guide.

What operating system are you using?

Were you able to successfully follow the instructions in the “Compiling an Example App” section of the user’s guide? I recommend doing this first so that you can verify that the main parts of your development environment are set up correctly. Also, once you get that working, you will be able to program the Wixel without using Eclipse.
