Didj Build Environment
Buildcross is able to build a working toolchain that supports C and C++.
Since it can be a pain to build the cross compiler on Windows, I'm providing a prebuilt toolchain. 32 bit Ubuntu 9.10 does some incorrect things during GCC's build that causes the built to fail. So I've provide that one too.
Extract to C:\ (full path to bin is C:\winarm\didj\bin) It should work in the root of any partition.
Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic, but also known to work fine on 10.4-Lucid)
Extract to /usr/local
Extract to /usr/local
Additional mirrors would be welcomed.
- git (In deb based distros, it's in the git-core package)
- gmp (In deb based distros it's often called libgmp-dev or libgmp3-dev)
- mpfr (In deb based distros it's often called libmpfr-dev)
- GCC & Binutils
- Makeinfo (In deb based distros it's in the texinfo package)
- And a Unix environment (Only really tested on Linux)
- git clone git://github.com/losinggeneration/buildcross.git
- cd buildcross
- sudo mkdir /usr/local/didj
- sudo chown [your username]:[any group] /usr/local/didj
- MAKE="make -j3" ./buildcross.sh didj -bl
- Replace -j3 with however many processors/cores you have +1
After that, the cross compiler should be built. You should now be able to build binaries for the Didj. I'd suggest adding /usr/local/didj/bin to your PATH. This is often in $HOME/.profile. Depending on your shell, Bash compatible shells can use:
The following all assumes the PATH has been correctly setup.
Typical usage for compiling and linking a single file:
arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-gcc -o hello hello.c
Typical usage for cross compiling a project that uses autotools
./configure --host=arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi make
CMake cross compiler rules
Save this file as ~/didj/didj.cmake
# this one is important SET(CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME Linux) #this one not so much SET(CMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION 1) # specify the cross compiler SET(CMAKE_C_COMPILER /usr/local/didj/bin/arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-gcc) SET(CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER /usr/local/didj/bin/arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-g++) # where is the target environment SET(CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH /usr/local/didj /home/harley/didj/rootfs /home/harley/didj/custom/rootfs) # search for programs in the build host directories SET(CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH_MODE_PROGRAM NEVER) # for libraries and headers in the target directories SET(CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH_MODE_LIBRARY ONLY) SET(CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH_MODE_INCLUDE ONLY)
Then use this command to build it. It's better to build in a clean subdirectory in CMake projects.
mkdir build && cd build cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=~/didj/didj .. make
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-
To be written.
Any others you run into please document here.
You will find it useful to create a file named 'crosscompile' with the contents below (edit accordingly for your directory structure). Whenever you want to compile anything for the device, enter 'source crosscompile' first to set the environment variables.
