I asked this question yesterday and one of the users pointed out to me that this question may be better for Stack Overflow. I feel that my question involves configuring Netbeans to run assembly code so it is on-topic here.

Additionally, please point out any flaws in my question. I don't understand why it has been down-voted twice.

While there might not strictly be any programming happening in the question, it is definitely about a software tool used primarily by programmers. Stack Overflow's on-topic page includes this guidance, emphasis mine:

...if your question generally covers…

  • a specific programming problem, or
  • a software algorithm,
  • or software tools commonly used by programmers; and is
  • a practical, answerable problem that is unique to software development

… then you’re in the right place to ask your question!

Therefore, I believe it should make a good Stack Overflow question.

I suspect the downvotes are from people who deemed the question off-topic for Super User. From a quick scan, it looks well written to me. You might consider putting the build output in monospace/code formatting for better readability, though.

    The first revision of the question only had images, of errors, which were extremely hard to read. The original errors were also caused by the user attempting to compile Linux code on Windows.
