Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i wanted to use glibc-gcc to cross compile from a ubuntu machine (2.6.35) to a mips32r2 platform. While checking the man pages for gcc I can see that there are options like -march which can be set to mips32r2. Does that mean that I dont need to download and build a cross compiler? Can I use the one installed in my machine to cross compile for mips. If this is possible can some one please type out the entire command to compile a simple hello world program for mips
Versions of my utilities are:
kernel : 2.6.35

I have heard of crosstool-ng, but that was not my doubt. What I wanted to know was if I want to cross compile for mips, using glibc-gcc do I need to build a cross compiler or can I use the one installed in my PC.
