I have my Zaurus 5500 running Opie, and I've been trying to get a working cross compiler for it. OE is far to complicated for me to set up because I keep getting into that... this software requires this software which requires this software which requires a software whose build script is broken.
All I need is GCC and/or G++. Having a GUI would be nice, but at this point, having Hello World is a miracle.
In any case, I'm also developing for another embedded system. I don't think the processors are the same. The other system has a PXA255 in it, and the cross compiler that I have working seems to make Hello World just fine for the Zaurus. So, if I built another compiler for the Zaurus (I'm doing a client-server app) what would be the differences? Is there a real need to build a second compiler when I already have one ARM cross-compiler working (albiet for a slightly different processor?)
