Cross development tools precompiled for SGI are now available on ftp.fnet.fr
in the linux-mips/crossdev/mips-sgi-irix5/ directory. Big endian and
little endian versions of binutils-2.6 and gcc 2.7.2 are provided, in both
AOUT and ELF versions. The documentation (man/info pages) is provided as two
separate tar files, one for gcc another one for binutils. If you already have
e.g. a native gcc and/or binutils installed somewhere you probably don't need
I hope there are no gotchas left (there were a couple to take care of even
*after* a successful make/make install), however I could do only minimal
testing of the big endian versions (only built libgcc.a with them).
The big-endian versions are the mips- files, the little-endian are the
mipsel- files, the aout versions are the -linux files, the elf versions are
the -linuxelf files. I believe this is the same convention as used for e.g.
the i486-linux tools.
README files are provided.
If someone tries the tools I would appreciate feedback on how well (or not)
