Exclamation How can I cross-compile a program for my openwrt router?


Hi,

I am new to Linux and the whole programming world. I want to compile a program with the source I already have but I have to add an option.

When I run the command ./autogen.sh the terminal returns aclocal not found. Is it a package or something i have to install?

Please guide me through the process as many guides are confusing.

Any help would be very very much appreciated!

Hi -

"automake" is a good start, but not sufficient. Please look here:

thx for all the help. I solved the aclocal problem by installing libtools.

Does anyone know how to build a gcc 4.3.3 for target ar71xx?

Thx
