Hi All

I now can create a cross devel environment for the mipsel-linux platform. This means that every one could have one with not many surprises :) from
or for a newer version (binutils and gcc)

with that, you need a glibc
get glibc, glibc-libs, glibc-devel and any other packages you want
This packages are mipsel native code
to extract the files you need to convert them to cpio then use cpio
> rpm2cpio  file >outfile
> cpio -i --make-directories <outfile

install the files in the directory /usr/local/mipsel-linux/ ( bin, lib, include)
edit $()/mipsel-linux/lib/   yes a text file
add the prefix /usr/local/mipsel-linux to the paths, you will see what I mean when you see the file

test compile hello world

I still need to test the execution on the "eb"

This will now allow us to document the tool chain. to create consistent development program.

To get NFS working, "portmap" and "mount" need to support nfs. I am checking busybox-1.0rc3 to see how to configure it to support nfs.
