Being miles away in New Zealand it is kind of hard to know who is
I wasn't far from there last week ;-) (for those who do not know I
gave two talks in Manchester England last week)
I have been playing around with cross compiling userland binaries.
But before I get carried away here are some questions:
1. Is anyone already doing this?
Not that I know of.
2. Should we set up a repository so we don't all spend our time
doing the same
3. I have used the the cross compiler from ftp.fnet.fr. The libc I
have used is
the gnu one that has just appeared on ftp.fnet.fr in the last
week. Are these the right ones to be using (they only allow
This should be correct. That libc snapshot probably only does static
binaries, the developers have initial 'hello world' type shared
binaries working from what I hear so expect some more about this
soon. I'll update the list on any progress on shared libraries I hear
4. If several people are doing this maybe we should coordinate the
we don't all do the same packages.
Another good idea. ;-)
