Re: building cross tools for sparc

Maybe what I read was that Ubuntu had dropped support for sparc.

It seems like in a few short years that sparc has fallen off the face of the earth.

Sparc64 is listed on the debian ports but I seem to have read somewhere that it was being dropped.



Building a normal debian cross compiler for now would be okay.

Not without more information. sparc is available as an architecture in
Debian but not for Emdebian but that won't matter as the Emdebian
packages are binary-compatible with the Debian equivalents anyway.

If using Debian testing or unstable, use the -m option so that the
packages already converted for multiarch can be forced into the old
dpkg-cross paths.
