Best cross compile kit for building glib-2 for PowerPC?


I'm trying to cross-compile glib-2.24.0 for Linux running on a Freescale PPC CPU and running into one problem after another.

My host is running Fedora 13, and there I can compile the same source for the host machine with no problems. For the cross compilation, I'm currently using LTIB (provided already configured from Freescale for my board/CPU).

Has anyone had any better luck with a different cross compile kit? Scratchbox, Crosstool, etc?

So it turns out that Freescale has done some customization to LTIB (or to LTIB's profile for this board). As a result, we are not able to build an embedded Linux image for the MPC8572DS board using any other utility.

We still might be able to cross compile certain other libraries or programs in another environment, but given that we must use LTIB to build the rootfs we have decided to stick with it for everything the foreseeable future.

mmh.. i'm an happy CRUX PPC user but i don't see a cross toolcahin ports from long time because, now, it is quite simple and cheap to buy a second hand apple G5 to build everythings.

Anyway, ask them as they are really a smart devel team.

No experience with it, but the usually suggested cross tool is
crosstool-ng. Is said to be the best maintained tool chain.
