Does anyone know if compiling with the Live CD creates arm programs by default or do we have to do something special?
omro
Which LiveCD?

I can run it on a P4 and a P3 (both laptops)

I was hoping that the live CD would be an easy cross compiler. I had tried to setup one on my Linux box without much sucess. Compiling was filled with errors and as a linux programing novice I didn't understand how to deal with them. Live CD seems to compile without any errors, creating programs. When I copy these to my C760 they will NOT run (cannot execute errors). Live CD sets itself up in computer memory as read only. I can't get Live CD to even try to run the programs because of the read only status of its path directories. Any ideas how to solve which cpu these should run on. blink.gif

I am eager to give this liveCD a go. I hope it works.

Am I right though that this is for compiling a comlete rom? I think more of us would help the effort if we could reasonably easily (ie without too much techie) compile our own programs. But not sure that a whole rom is what I would wish to try.

Why don't you try rc10 downloads and download zgcc-3.3.6.img.

If you put it in your "/home/root", it's mounted automatically and you can compile programs on your Z.
(just untar, ./configure, make and make install like a linux PC)

"make" can take quite long

"make install" is better replaced by "make DESTDIR=.... install", so you've got a chance to see what it does and to strip.

More info is in the forums (or PM me)

I can be a bit thick when Linux is involved.

I have a Mac so no way to use this Live CD, but am curious about it anyway, as I've an old desktop I could be tempted to drag out of a cupboard.

This CD does what exactly? Allows you to but your PC into a linux environment that will allow you to compile apps for pdaXrom?

Or does it allow you to run an emulated version of pdaXrom on your PC?

sorry if this is me being dumb
Sna
it's like a knoppix, it's a linux on a CD, no need of a hard disk at all, only a cdrom
and as display, it's like the pdaxrom .... on a bigger screen, it's fun smile.gif
and it's not an emulation, it's only the pdaxrom for another processor with a lot of things installed on it (a lot of packages + gcc)
so you can theorically compile programs or the whole rom with this CD, but i can't say how smile.gif

The next version of the live cd will have better "end-developer" support.

Got the CD running on one of my PCs. Really nippy!

Not sure about the wallpaper... but the rom is great fun. I'll look for a thread somewhere about how to get the most out of it. Perhaps I can mount a usb attached CF or SD card and also use the same on my Z... just what are the possibilities here? aka the likes of MandrakeMove using a USB pen as /home or similar?

And are the packages installed all available for the Z?

Anyway, it's a gem and shouldn't be allowed to languish in obscurity.

Well, I'm making the effort!! I've borrowed a PC laptop from work for the weekend, I've got the liveCD working on it, there's lots of stuff on it.

Can someone now either:

Give me an idiots guide to compiling a apps for pdaXrom on my Z, say the latest Firefox for example, or something smaller and faster

or

Can they tell me where they found out how to do it.

Remember I've never done this before, I'm making the effort. I don't know where to look and any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I can hardly wait for a "end-developer" LiveCD if it is already set up with a complete cross compiling enviroment! I think that this would open the ability to compile programs for many of us novice linux "programers". Personally I would like this MORE than a new release of the rom (however I won't complain which ever comes first if the CD doesn't take too long).

A small PC with a 2 or 3 gig hd. setup like I have seems to compile VERY fast. If cross compiling is even close to what the current CD can do I suspect almost everyone will be happy with it.

PS Thanks for all the work you guys have done and are planning for as NO other rom has worked as well on my C760 (Including the orginal as it came new).

Once a liveCD is available, that would make a QEMU implementation a no-brainer, yes?
