Generic Linux cross toolchain for tests

Some time ago we agreed that not everyone here uses Ubuntu distribution and decided to provide so called ‘generic linux’ cross toolchain. Recently I managed to get it done and now need brave testers to tell is it working or not.

Get it here: (64bit only)

Needed files are toolchain-11.07.tar.xz and script. Unpack tarball from / so /opt/linaro/11.07/ will be populated and put anywhere you want (it will be integrated into tarball later).

How to use:

$ source

this will add cross toolchain into PATH and also set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to two directories:

Feel free to experiment with second dir by removing files from there and checking are system provided libs are fine too.

So far I checked this toolchain under few distributions:

It failed only under CentOS (which was expected due to it’s age).

How did I checked? So far compilation of ‘gpm’ and ‘zlib’ were tested.
