Hello and some toolchain questions
(Sorry for the spam if you all get this twice - I sent it earlier today
but from a different email address than the one I subscribed with,
something that often makes list servers cranky... As I haven't gotten
it back yet I'm hoping no one will ever get it!).
I've just started setting up and arm-linux development system and,
surprise surprise have a few questions! I'm pretty new to debian - last
time I did all of this it was under redhat and I just built the
toolchains directly from source.
To date, I've been getting the toolchain set up using the instructions
This has mostly worked quite well. However, I did hit a few problems:
- I was unable to get c++ to build
- We would rather use newlib than libc, but it was unclear as to what I
had to do to get this working.
For now I've just built gcc 3.3.3 using libc and c only. This seems to
work in that it can compile the linux kernel (2.6.7) - absolutely no
idea if it works though.
In perusing the archives for this list it looks like there's lots of
excellent work going on with regards to getting standard cross-dev
toolchains set up. What is the status with these regarding stability? I
would much rather use something that is known to be stable (and
configured by a professional)!
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
