I'm trying to compile some world-hailing test program on my zaurus. I installed gcc and, as far as I know, everything needed. But when I'm trying to

arm-linux-gcc hello.c  -o hello

I got an ugly

/usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux/3.4.3/../../../../arm-linux/bin/ld:/usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux/3.4.3/../../../libc.so: file format not recognized; treating as linker script
/usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux/3.4.3/../../../../arm-linux/bin/ld:/usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux/3.4.3/../../../libc.so:4: syntax error
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Would anyone understand this? And, better, explain me why?

Thanks alot.

I downloaded the OZ SDK from the 3.5.3/sdk directory, and uncompressed it. I followed the OE GettingStarted page. The only thing I'm not so sure about it is the version of Bitbake. I'm using 1.3.2, which may be a little too new for our "old" OE tree. Anyway...

I modified local.conf accordingly, setting my MACHINE as "collie" and my DISTRO as "openzaurus". I also set temp and cache dirs to something that makes sense.

I then export BBPATH to the root of my "sdk", and try to run a simple "bitbake nano". Sadly, I got the following output:

NOTE: Using cache in '/goinfre/openembedded-oz3.5.3/cache'
NOTE: Parsing finished. 2216 cached, 0 parsed, 47 skipped, 0 masked.
NOTE: build 200601271454: started

TARGET_OS     = "linux"
MACHINE       = "collie"
DISTRO        = "openzaurus"
TARGET_FPU    = "soft"

If anybody has an idea on what went wrong, or maybe knows which version of Bitbake I should use? Thanks alot.

I bought a refurbished Collie a couple of months ago, and it mostly works like a charm. But whenever I remove the battery or switch the battery lock, the whole RAM is cleared. I realized it isn't normal when I read a "check backup battery" kernel message in my dmesg.

This is not a big problem since I have my root on an SD card, but I'd like to know if there is a way to change the aforementionned battery, where I can buy a new one, maybe some schematics on how to access the old on on my Zaurus... all this.

If anyone already performed the trick, any advice would be welcomed. Thanks alot.
