How to cross compile?
 
Hi~ Have a good day~
I need your help.
I'm tring to "cross compile".

My computer's environment :
CPU : Pentium III (Katmai)

Debian version: 2.4.27 (i386)

GCC : i486-linux
Thread model: posix
version: 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)

I have a program that is made on debian (i386 type) O/S.
The program is execute with booting.
I can modify a kernel using below commands
"make menuconfig/oldconfig/bzImage" ...etc.
so I can make kernel adding some functions I wanted.

but I want this program to execute on other CPU environments.
in particular 'sparc' type.
and I found that is can be by cross compile.
but I can't find the methods. and I don't know what will be cross compiled.

And welcome to LQ :D

Why don't you simply compile/install your program and kernel modifications on the target machine? It is much easier to do that than to set up a cross compiler for the kernel.

Because I just have a machine that has i386 CPU type.
and I'll have some test with this programs next Tuesday.
but we don't have some machines to test, so we'll go to other company.
