There was one in the old cacko x11 rom. But there is none in the new rom? will a c compiler be released in the near future?

Do you mean an on-board C compiler?

I\'d switch to pdaXrom if I could compile code on it, I thought the only way to write stuff was on a desktop cross compiler. If I\'m wrong please let me know, I\'d love to switch.
Left Linux and Linux PDAs... sorry, got boring.  Switched to Mac.

we used to have a zGCC package for our old rom (X11 Rom.) It will still work. But its not available for download anymore. and its an image that you have to mount. I still have a copy of it on my big CF card.

Why is it not available anymore?  If you have a compiler and it works, post it my good man! pdaXrom NEEDS this badly, it\'s so neat having an X workstation in my hand but without some on-board development tools, I\'m put off, it\'s not enough to have a desktop SDK, I want to code on the toilet or in bed!!! LOL  ;-)

To be able to use pdaXrom for compiling would be so cool, I am experimenting and playing around with code under Cacko QT ROM 1.20/XQt with dev-img-1.5 and I love it.

Bah! I\'m from a procedural programming background still wrestling with the witchcraft and devilry of C++, Java is not even on the cards for me yet.

Just found out I still have the old zgcc file on my hard drive. I\'ll try to install it and see whether it will work. Thanks omin0us!

I tried to install the zgcc-3.3.1.img file. I copied the file to /home/root directory and rebooted. But nothing happened, so how to install it, omin0us?

You have to mount it manualy.... The compilers works... you can even install some needed devel package from old X11 distribution..... it\'ll work, but without any warranty

Was able to install the package, but when I tried to compile something, it gave an error info, something like \"ld could not find -lc\". Not sure about what that meant.

Just make sure you set up a correct environment. There is a setup script on the zgcc image.

I don\'t understand??? I thought you could compile your own applications on the C860 and i don\'t mean in Java.
