From LinuxMIPS

Took the following part out of the article:

CHECK: One should be able to compile linux kernel using cross compiler running on a PC so it doesn't depend on gcc and binutils to be running on PS2. Independent of this even if GCC3.22 and Binutils 2.14 is already running on PS2, if I am not wrong the basic stuff should be sufficient to get the linux kernel to compile, so is there any specific issue which is stopping people from compiling the kernel using it.

Maybe that's the answer: The PS2's CPU, the R5900, is not supported as target from GCC, so a patched GCC is needed. There are a few patches available for GCC 3 and GCC 4, but it looks like none of them allows kernel compilation.
