Building a cross-compiler for sparc
[ i'm not subscribed to this list, i would greatly appreciate it if you
could CC your reply to me. thanks! ]
Recently I bought a second-hand Sun JavaStation NC. I would like to run
a custom 2.4 kernel on it so I need to compile a sparc kernel on my
Athlon workstation. For that I need (correct me if i'm wrong) a gcc
compiler that can compile for sparc platforms.
To do this I've download the deb-source of gcc and followed the
instructions in README.cross. But I haven't succeeded in compiling a gcc
cross-compiler. It stops with multiple errors about 'No such
instruction'. A little search on google learnt that it probably tries to
use the wrong binutils.
I've tried compiling with binutils-multiarch and binutils-sparc both or
each one alone installed but with no luck. Further searches about this
problem didn't gave me any clue so I hope you can help me get my
JavaStation and therefore gcc running :)
Thanks in advance!
