Cross Compile GNU make for Alpha Architecture on i686 PC
Hi everyone ,,
I'm trying to cross compile the GNU make for Alpha Architecture on my i686 PC and the GNU make i compiled would be placed in my virtual hard disk which is a Alpha based linux simulated system.
My question is now , I'm able to cross compile the GNU make on my i686 real PC machine , but when i let the make program run in my virtual machine , it pops out the error ..
make: /lib/libc.so.6.1: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by make)
After that, I try another alternative , and I read through the file "INSTALL" on the GNU make directory that I downloaded from the internet . In this case , I downloaded make-3.81.
On the sub section "Compiling For Multiple Architectures"
It says that
"You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the
same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their
own directory. To do this, you must use a version of `make' that
supports the `VPATH' variable, such as GNU `make'. `cd' to the
directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run
the `configure' script. `configure' automatically checks for the
source code in the directory that `configure' is in and in `..'.
If you have to use a `make' that does not support the `VPATH'
variable, you have to compile the package for one architecture at a
time in the source code directory. After you have installed the
package for one architecture, use `make distclean' before reconfiguring
for another architecture."
And I do not understand the line "by placing the object files for each architecture in their own directory" . What object files that I should put ??
And in addition to that , what is the VPATH variable ?
