Re: OMAP4 - armel vs armhf



Hi,

Unfortunately I wasn't able to install libc6:armel on pandaboard with debian armhf. I've found some guides how to do it, eg:

sudo apt-get install libc6-armel-cross libc6-dev-armel-cross

, but every time apt-get couldn't find package. Any suggestions?

Thanks, regards
-Michal

Hi Steve,

After your reply it's more clear what's going on. Debian on pandaboard is "out of box", no additional stuff installed. BUT - I was able to run my app, because previously I needed to create additional symbolic  link "ld-linux.so" (there was only the one with armhf suffix) which was required to run applications compiled with armcc compiler. I'm not sure how to do that, but now I should install libc6 armel and change target of that additional link.
Thanks for hint.

Regards,
-Michal

What's surprising is that you're able to run this application at all on
armhf: the ELF PI for armel is different than the one for armhf, so you
*should* be getting a "no such file or directory" error when trying to run the binary.  How are you invoking the program?  Have you cross-installed libc6:armel for compatibility, or done something else here?

The key requirement for successfully running armel binaries on armhf is to have an ELF PI (ld.so) that can tell the difference between hard-float and soft-float libraries on the system.  If I'm not mistaken, Debian unstable should have this.
