c++ eclipse plugin?

I have gotten netbeans to work with c/c++ using MinGw.

Now I want to enable c/c++ in eclipse.

I have downloaded the CDT plugin for eclipse.
and point the XL c/c++ compiler setting to the bin directory of my MinGw.

I can build some c/c++ projects but when I press the run button it doesn't do anything but say their is no binary ,...etc

Other times it gives this error.



And other times it complains about having no make file command...etc

What do I do to fix this ? Am I not suppose to use the internal builder and use gnu make builder instead? I tried that and I still get problems.

Thanks for any help

Have you setup all the tools required (Make tools, GCC, GDB)? Here's one guide.
