Cross compile program for alpha architecture on i686-pc-linux-gnu


Hi all ,,

I try to cross compile a program for alpha architecture on i686-pc-linux-gnu...

Below is the output in my terminal when i run ./configure

root@ongwenjian-VPCCW25FG:~/Desktop/glide/glide3x# ./configure --prefix=/home/ongwenjian/Desktop/glide/build --enable-fx-glide-hw=h3 --enable-shared --enable-static --host=alphaev67-unknown-linux-gnu --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu

configure: WARNING: using cross tools not prefixed with host triplet
configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash ./config.sub

I was wondering ,, how does the last two lines above could happen

configure: WARNING: using cross tools not prefixed with host triplet
configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash ./config.sub

Problem with automake ??

The program above required automake version 1.5 & below,,
so , i install the automake version 1.5 & below in $HOME/automake-temp and the existing automake stays at /usr/share/automake

the configure script was generated by using aclocal && automake && autoconf

I try to run /bin/bash , it has no problem at all

Pls advice ...

No, I wouldn't worry about dlltool. alphaev67-unknown-linux-gnu-cp is a different matter. It should be referenced in where you have all the other cross compile tools. check if you can use gnu cp as installed and then put in the symlink. You may have to do that for many things.

I attach a config.log file for your reference ,, I really cant find out where I missed

Same comment from my lecturer (supervisor) that dlltool is not the matter and same goes to cp ...

Here is the config.log file

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.67. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure --prefix=/home/ongwenjian/Desktop/glide/build --enable-fx-glide-hw=h3 --enable-shared --enable-static --enable-build-architecture=alpha --host=alphaev67-unknown-linux-gnu --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=alphaev67-unknown-linux-gnu

There's really no need to post all of everything. Post the snippets, wrapped in tags. I don't have cross compile tools to hand, but I do have compile tools. In /usr/i486-slackware-linux/bin there are symlinks to all the required tools. It is looking for a symlink there called cp to a program that functions as a copy in yopur environment. In the fictional words of Luc Picard, "Make it so."
