Hello All!

I've begun a new project to get the EABI toolchain for GCC working on ARM. Since Gentoo doesn't provide anything out of the box for this, I've been playing around with crossdev. I seem to have successfully installed a cross toolchain for arm-softfloat-linux-gnueabi. I have gone through only minor troubles installing everything up to GCC (4.2.3) when using the -nls USE flag. When configuring GCC, it fails here:

Code:
checking for suffix of objects... configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile


I find this interesting since compiling everything else so far hasn't caused any problems.

Does anyone have any ideas on this one?

Better yet, does anyone have a better idea for going about this? I basically want to create a complete build environment using GNU EABI so that my ARM board can chroot in via NFS and build things such as Xorg natively (since many such packages don't like cross-compiling). Perhaps bootstrapping or creating a new ARM stage image?

Looks like you are doing little-endian arm? I have a friend who is using crossdev to build big-endian arm eabi stages to run on NSLU2 http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/GentooSlug/HomePage. Last I heard they had stage 1 built using catalyst and were building either stage 2 or stage 3.
