Dear all,

I want ask to the community how can create a crosscompiling environment for the m68k target architecture (with a host arch amd64/x86). In the specific I need to develop an execution enviroment for an embedded system based on a Freescale ColdFire chip.

Do you have any experiences on this architecture? Any suggestion?

I tried to use crossdev to generate the cross-evironment, but I have too trouble with gcc or glibc compilation. I tried many versions of gcc and glibc without success (always with different errors...).

My final target is to develop a complete running environment based on the Coldfire architeture to implement a domain specific application. I want to use gentoo (if possible) but any linux distribution iis also ok.

Thanks for any information, links, help that you will give me!

Some of the log output would help. What target name are you using?

I had success with the target m68k-unknown-linux-gnu with the following versions:

Code:

glibc:2.3.6-r5
gcc 4.20
binutils 2.17-r1
linux kernel 2.6.11


In the specific, I'm searching for howto/survey/any other documentation to create and implement a very small gnetoo on coldfire.

thanks.

luigi

If size/RAM is an issue, you might want to consider uClibc.
