x-toolchain for 14.2


Hi All,

I'm trying to compile some software for Slackware Arm 14.2, but am unable to find the x-toolchain devtools for it. The x-toolchain_oldversions has tarballs for 12.2 through 14.1 and the mail x-toolchain folder has stuff for -current, but there is nothing for 14.2.

Can someone tell me where to find the x-build script (and any needed patches for gcc-5.5.0 and glibc-2.23) for 14.2?

TIA

Hi,

Have you tried this with gcc-5.5.0?

ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-devtools-soft-float-EOL/x-toolchain/x-build

Thanks for the reply.

That link doesn't work for me - I get "no such file or directory". Visiting ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/ produces a directory list that does not have anything resembling "slackwarearm-devtools-soft-float-EOL", either in the root or in the devtools folder. (I also checked in the "loft" and "people" folders with no luck.)

Ah!

It does seem to have disappeared!

I took the address from my local mirror which hasn't tried to update it since it went EOL, so can't even say when it went

Perhaps drmozes ( the creator & maintainer of Slackwarearm ) has good reason for pulling it offline, it might in that case be best that we wait for his input.

That doesn't look like something I'd have done - not at that directory level.

I forgot to archive the 14.2's tool chain before the hard float began, so there isn't one.
It's probably reasonably easy to take the x-toolchain directory and retro fit the older components though - I don't think that the script changed much.

The 14.2 tool chain is at http://slackware.uk/slackwarearm/sla...lk-14.1.tar.xz

It says 14.1 on the outside, but it's 14.2 on the inside

Thanks, I'll rename that and delete the "14.1" archive.

On the subject of a cross tool chain - has anybody built a bare bones llvm? I wanted to build the latest LLVM on 64bit 14.2 installation , but the dependencies are too old, and I don't fancy including independent versions just to satisfy llvm. I'm hoping that it can be trimmed down to just support c/c++ for ARM.

OK, thank you. Perhaps using Github or Sourceforge to host the scripts might avoid things like that?

Looks like it's neither 14.1 nor 14.2 - glibc version is the same, but GCC is 5.3.1. (14.1 uses GCC 4.8, while 14.2 uses 5.5) I'll give it a try and see.

The original 14.2 gcc was 5.3.0, which you see in that x-toolchain archive.
gcc-5.3.1 is a subsequent patch, just like gcc-5.5.0 is a subsequent patch.

Also, check the dates in the x-toolchain archive and compare them to the 14.2 release date.

14.2 was shipped with gcc-5.3.1, and 5.5 was released in patches.
