Dear Colleagues,


I’m trying to compile a snapgear Linux version by using ARM's cross compiler and tool chain, under Cygwin.

The order of building is this:

1) unzip the tar package of ARM and snapgear.

2) compile and link

make xconfig

choosing: a) Linux kernel version 2.6.x

cool.gif platform: Intet for network processor IXDP465

3) make

The problem (as you can see below) is with make, could you please advise what’s the problem and how I can solve it.

Every help is higly appreciated.

I check the intl libraries and they are found (and installed by Cygwin setup.exe).

Thanks in advance and best regards;
