[Solved] ESP32 Error: error: expected initializer before ‘__result_use_check‘

report errors:

A higher version of esp-idf was used before, but now a lower version of esp-idf should be used. There is an error in compiling after switching versions.

Execute make or make all

Run make -j16

a lot of errors



ESP idf expected initializer before ‘__ result_ use_ Check ‘error repair
the first part of the compilation information is as follows:

App "get-started" version: 237cc099-dirty
WARNING: Toolchain version is not supported: esp-2020r3
Expected to see version: crosstool-ng-1.22.0-97-gc752ad5
Please check ESP-IDF setup instructions and update the toolchain, or proceed at your own risk.
WARNING: Compiler version is not supported: 8.2.0
Expected to see version(s): 5.2.0
Please check ESP-IDF setup instructions and update the toolchain, or proceed at your own risk.

From the information point of view, the version of the compiled tool chain is incorrect
the esp-2020r3 version of tool chain is not supported. Use the crosstool-ng-1.22.0-97-gc752ad5 version
the 8.2.0 compiler is not supported. Use the 5.2.0 version.



After executing . Install. Sh in ESP IDF , the tool chain and compiler have been downloaded to ~ /. Espressif/tools/xtensa-esp32-elf .

So just modify the environment variables
the original export path = ~ /. Espressif/tools/xtensa-esp32-elf/esp-2020r3-8.4.0/xtensa-esp32-elf/bin: $path

vim ~/.bashrc

# Delete the previous compilation chain environment variables
#export PATH=~/.espressif/tools/xtensa-esp32-elf/esp-2020r3-8.4.0/xtensa-esp32-elf/bin:$PATH

# Add environment variables
export PATH=~/.espressif/tools/xtensa-esp32-elf/1.22.0-97-gc752ad5-5.2.0/xtensa-esp32-elf/bin:$PATH
source ~/.bashrc

ESP-IDF release/v3.3 use 1.22.0-97-gc752ad5-5.2.0 version
ESP-IDF release/v4.0 use esp-2019r2-8.2.0 version
ESP-IDF release/v4.2 use esp-2020r3-8.4.0 version
ESP-IDF release/v4.3 use esp-2021r1-8.4.0 version
