Upgrade your glibc to a recent version.
And installing the binutils-mips-linux-2.8.1-1
to a specific path, may result in problems.
I would suggest to compile at the given default
location and then move the executables to
/usr/bin. U will be able to access them everywhere.
Give it a try.

Hi,
I am trying to install a mips-linux cross compiler on my linux box with
        target=mips-linux
        host=i686-linux

 I download the rpm files
        binutils-mips-linux-2.8.1-1-i386.rpm
        egcs-mips-linux-1.0.3a-2.i386.rpm
        glibc-2.1.95.1.mips.rpm
from ftp://oss.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips

When I use rpm comand to install binutils and egcs, they work fine.
        rpm -i binutils-mips-linux-2.8.1-1-i386.rpm
        rpm -i egcs-mips-linux-1.0.3a-2.i386.rpm

However, as I intsall the glibc with the rpm command:
        rpm -i glibc-2.1.95.1.mips.rpm

I got a confliction with glibc-common-2.2.4-13, since my native glibc is
2.2.4-13. Thus I cannot install glibc.

Can anybody show me how to install the cross-compiler correctly? (what is
the correct rpm command?)

More questions:
If I have native glibc, can I install another glibc for cross-compiler? Can I install the binutils-mips-linux-2.8.1-1 to a specific path? How? ( when I install them with rpm -i command, the executable files will go to
/usr/bin as default. Can I change that?)

Thanks for your help.
