Question ARM Cross Compiling Issues


Hey All,

First of I have been reading around and there is some great information available, however, I haven't been able to find quite what I'm looking for.

My target is a Cirrus Logic ARM processor and my host PC is a lappy using Ubuntu. I have tried to generate my own cross compiler following many of the widely available "how to's" but I haven't had much success. The Logic board did come with a cross compiler (gcc-glibc). It does work and I have tested it.

So my problem is that I am attempting to compile a C program using Sqlite3. I know the code itself is good but I can't cross compile without an array of errors. I was just wondering if there is some sound tutorials or if someone could please point me in the right direction. I have a compiled version of SQLite3 for ARM and that also works without issue. It is purely just the cross-compiling of the SQLite3 code I have written.

Any help of information would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
J

Current Objectives:

Achieve a compiled C program (SQLite3), compiled to run on the ARM system I have.

Secondary Objectives:

Achieve a self compiled Cross Compiler.

Can't help you with cross-compiling (and I didn't like it too much either :) but you have another option: use QEMU to install whole ARM system and make compilation native

It's difficult to help if you do not provide information about the triggered errors during compilation. Your programming skills can also not be judged by your posting.

Basically, you will need to build and run your code natively on your current development system to verify that it really compiles well. The next step is to provide all the needed header files and static/shared libraries for the ARM port of sqlite3 as well, otherwise you can't link an executable program for the target device.

I'm sure that the error messages do give some hints.
