Arm Elf Toolchain



Paul Wise drew my attention to this post, I'm not subscribed to mentors
anymore but please DO NOT CC: me - take the entire thread to
debian-embedded@lists.debian.org instead (where I am subscribed along
with all of those Debian people who are routinely building and using
cross-building toolchains in Debian.)

By ELF, I'm assuming you mean the ELF binary format but that then
doesn't describe which ABI or even endianness. Please clarify.

ARM is the Debian name for the old StrongARM port
armel is the Debian name for ARMv5 EABI
armhf is the proposed Debian name for an ARM8 port to run on devices
like the Efika Genesis.
ARM9 chips like OMAP4 will use armel.

As they should be.

Try looking at the Emdebian cross-building toolchain stuff which is
likely to be more useful.

The correct list for these enquiries is the debian-embedded list:
