Build it with the pdaXrom cross toolchain. It's very easy and doesn't require any patches (when built with OE at least):
_It's_not_working_. Why is that nobody came up with an ipk so far, after those long treads?
Althought some of us cried about the g77 support
for the SDK, it's still not in the RC8.
sh-3.00# ./configure --host=arm-linux
checking for gfortran... no
checking whether we are using the GNU Fortran 77 compiler... no
checking whether accepts -g... no
checking for f2c... no
configure: WARNING: in order to build octave, you must have a compatible
configure: WARNING: Fortran compiler or f2c installed and in your path.
configure: error: See the file INSTALL for more information.
I compiled f2c but it's just not working, it compiles wrong code. And I don't want to recompile gcc.
I got octave working with a chrooted Debian
. This is the only thing what I need from Debian and now it uses 120 megabyte. And it would be much faster if it were compiled with VFP. So, as you see I really want to have octave compiled and packed in a nice ipk, but I can't do it.
Any help would be appreciated.
