Re: crosscompiler tool chain from i386-linux to powerpc-apple andothers


Excellent! Beware, though: I have only run and passed the regression tests
for ppc750 and ppc405. I have not yet tested sparc-linux
(though I do have an old Sparcstation earmarked for the purpose someday).
You will need to *test* your binaries on the target platforms,
I'm afraid.

Yes, I sure will test them. I'll let you know.

The only problem I found was when the crosstool tried to download the source tarbals from This server seems not to be very responsive lately. So I had to download the tarbal myself from a mirror and restart the whole process for each missing tarbal. Later on I changed the ftp server on the scripts. I had no problems with the other ftp sites at all.

What OS are you building on?  I've heard reports that
red hat 9's wget can't fetch from
If that's what's going on, does adding
to the wget commandline help?

I'm using RedHat 8.

Thanks for your tips :)
