Using Gentoo Wiki and edoceo page to install/setup mingw.
I installed the latest crossdev version (marked unstable) dated yesterday.
After emerge'ing the crossdev ebuild, the next instruction on both pages is to set the target using crossdev.
Regardless of target set, I receive the error message:
Code:
 ERROR: Invalid atom "/"

crossdev will spawn thousands of PIDs until memory is exhausted or I pkill all crossdev processes.

I repeated the above with the stable version. Same result.
I must be missing some minuscule but crucial setup step somewhere.

Help?

Exactly the same here trying to make an AVR target. Looks like a mask is in order, use last version. Yep, just downgraded, now running normally on 20140729.
Thanks digifuzzy, you led me in the right direction, hours dinking with this. The problem version I have is crossdev-20140917.
A bug should be filed, but I use Funtoo and last time I posted a bug I was told not to post bugs here. I am always careful to only post generic bugs that affect both distros.
I really don't comprehend statements such as this:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7634912.html#7634912
Is there a competition, or is this a better way for us all to solve problems? More often than not I am posting answers not problems, so this petty bickering seems counter-productive to me.

Glad my post helped someone else. :-)
Same here - just installed funtoo (had to ditch arch and my debian fileserver is next)
I'll try the earlier release and see if that solves the issue for me.

Right...I'm further along than before. At least I get a reporting from crossdev about what it is doing.
Its crunching stage 1 as I type. I had to go to the forum post cross gcc fails to resolve making folders for package.keywords et al. (see post#7).

Thanks for the suggestion yuyuyak.

How do you know they also affect Gentoo, given that you are the one posting the bug, and use Funtoo?

It's called intelligence.

@cwr Kindly keep your crap to yourself. It was a legitimate question leading to another one, depending on the reply from the person it was put to, not someone behaving like an asshat, for whatever irrelevant reason.

I found out this morning on the funtoo IRC that there is an issue with their crossdev package.
Apologies to the gentoo folks for the noise.
