This is probably way too big a question to ask here, but I'm hoping
someone can help me. I have inherited a gcc 2.95.3 cross development
tool chain, which has been working fine to build for my powerpc-linux
target machine. I'm building the kernel and user programs fine. I'm
beginning to find as I add things in that I'm missing libraries. Today
its libresolv which I need for pump. Some questions:
1. Do I really need to go back and build my own tool chain? I've tried
grabbing 2.95.3 sources and building by running configure with
--target=powerpc-linux, but I get some missing include file errors
building libgcc2.a. I'm on a 405GP (no fp). Should I even bother doing
2. On my intel development machine I see that libresolv.a comes from
glibc-devel-2.2.5-34. I have gcc-2.96-110 for my compiler. Should I go
find a version of glibc-devel that matches up with my existing 2.95.3
tools? How will I know if its the right version?
3. Better yet, is there somewhere I can just obtain a reasonable tool
chain that's ready-built for my target machine? Complete with libraries?
Sorry for the newbie type questions. I have the "Using and Porting GNU
CC" book, but am finding it a little too Stallman-esque to follow. Anyone?
