By now there is plenty of good information on getting Gentoo up and running on the ps3. However, setting up a development environment to target the spe's (on the ps3 itself or any other computer) still seems to be in flux and I have not seen any related threads as of yet. So I am starting this thread...

This is as far as I got:
Code:

gauss ~ # CFLAGS=-O2 crossdev --l 1.15.0 --b 2.17.50.0.15 --g 4.3.0_alpha20070406 -s0 spu

 * binutils failed :(
 * If you file a bug, please attach the following logfiles:
 * /var/log/portage/cross-spu-elf-info.log
 * /var/log/portage/cross-spu-elf-binutils.log



The error was "C compiler can not create executables... check config.log"

the offending lines from config.log:

Code:
conftest.c:2: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'me'
configure:3557: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| #ifndef __cplusplus
|   choke me
| #endif


and...

Code:
conftest.cc: In function 'int main()':
conftest.cc:13: error: 'exit' was not declared in this scope
configure:4009: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h.  */
|
| #define PACKAGE_NAME ""
| #define PACKAGE_TARNAME ""
| #define PACKAGE_VERSION ""

| #define PACKAGE_BUGREPORT ""
| /* end confdefs.h.  */
|
| int
| main ()
| {
| exit (42);
|   ;
|   return 0;
| }


Are there any success stories!?

If you are interested in this type of information, I suggest you join us on #gentoo-ppc64 on IRC. There are plenty of people working with the toolchain and applications based on that toolchain. I personally am trying to move towardsa a more optimized set of stages where we can eventually move to easy installs of the cell toolchains. We're getting there...

Hello, im try to set up the toolchain using the layman overlay. Im not sure what I have to do, this is what i have done:

Code:

  emerge layman
  echo "source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/make.conf
  layman -f
  layman -a toolchain
  layman -a cell
  echo "sys-devel/gcc -*" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  echo "sys-devel/binutils -*" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  echo "sys-libs/newlib -*" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
  echo "sys-libs/libspe2 ~ppc64 ~ppc" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords


my package.use:
Code:

=sys-devel/gcc-4.3.0_alpha20070629 -fortran


Next, I merged this pakcages(gcc not compile), but I noticed that I must use crossdev to merge the toolchain for spu.
I belive that I need two versions of toolchain, one for the ppu, another one for the spu. I suppose that the ppu toolchain can merge using portage(sys-devel/gcc etc...), but spu toolchain must merge with crossdev -t spu.

The error of sys-devel/gcc:

Code:

# emerge sys-devel/gcc

Knowing this, and knowing that sys-devel/gcc not compile, the next step I have done:
Code:

crossdev -t spu


But I get another error. The error of crossdev -t spu:

I am spanish, and this is the first time that I post in english, so sorry for my bad english. How are the state of the toolchain? It compile?

I'm having a weird problem -- I've had this working for ages, I even have a ray tracer running on the SPUs ( http://sf.net/projects/hdcellrt ) but, I recently tried updating. I am getting the following error:

Code:

checking for struct tms... yes
checking for clock_t... yes
checking for .preinit_array/.init_array/.fini_array support... yes
checking if mkdir takes one argument... no
*** Configuration spu-unknown-elf not supported

I was wondering if anyone else had a problem like this or knew what to do?

Hmm -- I guess it would help if I said where I found how to do all this:

http://www.daniel.jp/joomla/info/ps3/creating-ps3-toolchains-on-gentoo.html

shows how to get up and started.
