You may want to switch to a recent binutils like 2.18 and gcc 4.2.2.
Ralf, are you or anybody else using that combination for mips?
With which versions of glibc and glibc-linuxthreads?
I have been having a joyous time trying to build more recent tools.
I keep getting errors like the following when building glibc of any
version (tried from 2.3.6 through 2.7):
sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/waitid.c:51: error: memory input 6 is not
I found a patch for that
(http://sourceware.org/ml/crossgcc/2005-04/msg00208.html), but, after
passing that file, it fails similarly on pread.c. It seems to be an
issue with INLINE_SYSCALL, rather than the call sites, that appears to
be related to later versions of gcc.
Later versions of glibc (2.7, 2.6...) fail at configure time with the
error: "The mipsel is not supported."
So, what are the lastest versions of the build tools that people are
using on mips?
