Full Version: help!! installing gcc
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

Would anyone recommend the 5600 over the 5500?
Anyway ..I'm fairly new to the Linux enviroment ..and I want to install gcc on my zaurus ..does anyone have easy to follow instructions? ..and I mean simple! I am new to this. Please e-mail me!
I'm running GCC on my Z, but as far as I was aware it's only for the C series.

You may find some pointers here. IF it works on a 5x00, you have to mount a disk image from a storage card (instructions given) and run a script to setup, then reboot. I hope it works for you too, I am really impressed being able to code in bed, on the bus, in a field or even on the toilet :-)

PS, welcome to the wonderful world of the Z, the more you put in, the more you get out - enjoy.
It should work on the 5500 though you may have to use the -mcpu=strongarm1100 switch (if it defaults to the xscale cpu, I don't know).
