WARNING: Not for regular users, developers and experienced users only. You may brick your box!!!

EDIT: I have now uploaded my first complete development environment for the ls-gl. The preAlpha version has been deleted. This version is an alpha version and thus may have many bugs. Those willing to test, please ping this posts with results.

For version 0.16-8, please uninstall any previous version as they will certain gcc files will conflict with the newer version. Currently, there is no uninstaller script. You can reflash the firmware and install the version or delete the devtools directory if devtools was not installed to / (i.e. /mnt/disk1/opt/tools). Sorry for the inconvenience.

You can download the package at: http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/DEVELOPMENT/arm9-LS_Pro/devtools/arm-tools-0_16-8.tgz

Version Release History:

Code:
version 0.12 
   --gcc-4.1.1
version 0.16-2
   --busybox and coreutils upgrade.
version 0.16-3
   --removed busybox due to error.
version 0.16-8
   --reworked gcc for armv5tejl.
   --fixed some ncurses bugs.
   --added gettext-0.16


Thanks,

jonli447

Hello,

I have compiled some things necessary for native compiling on the ls-gl. The package is far from complete (hence preAlpha) as most this won't work yet on most people's setups. Please don't consider this a "development tools for openlink" since a) we haven't completed an openlink yet; b) it's far from complete. More binaries/libs are needed (i.e. an updated binutils). This is basically a start. For those who want to test this package, please untar to root and test the binaries. Also, please list, and possibly update the package with any missing binaries. Thanks guys (hey...at least it's a start :)

The package can be downloaded at: http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/DEVELOPMENT/arm9-LS_Pro/devtools/arm-tools-0_16-8.tgz

I have added mine to the downloads link for the LS PRO. Maybe others should follow suit :)

@lb_worm, where did you put your upload? I can't find it in the downloads link. Also, did you upload your custom initrd yet?

I will upload my custom initrd (this version will not contain the kernel hack). I have actually replaced my old Buffalo copy now.

http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/uploads/LS_Pro_temporary/Tarballs/

PS: My Debian tar is 45M. I have switched over to Debian now and I am finialising the load so I can get a 'Freelink' out. That's if we are still sticking with these names?

it could be more obvious if we call it "DebianLink"...but then we would have a big amount of discussions about a non-existing image.....on the other side we could put "aka FreeLink" on the page if we rename it...

I have updated it. The kernel check will now just report a warning. It skips file updates if another distribution is located (Debian at the moment) plus a few other bits and bobs. Will upload it later.

I have updated some more stuff now, will post an update soon. I have upgraded openssl and openssh, binutils, bison, make, wget, automake, autoconf. Once the native toolchain is assimilated, people should have little problems compiling.:)

I have finished work with gcc-4.1.1 for this box. Using gcc-4.1.1 eliminates the need to use codesourcery patches since gcc-4.1.1 supports eabi version 4 /glibc-2.4. I'd rather not have to use patches if it's not necessary. The only problem I foresee is that I'll need to fix some libs that are linked to gcc-3.3.5. Native compiling should now be relatively simple. I need to stat some libs, but otherwise it should work. I'll post the package after I run a few more tests. Once I'm finished, is anyone interested in testing? Note that I'll still consider the package Alpha/developer version.

This is good going. I may push my Debian build to unstable (to match my Ubuntu system) and therefore stay just a few versions behind what is available.

Using the unstable feed would be good.

I unpacked this on my LS-Pro (not in / but in /opt which I put on /mnt/disk1).
The binaries work. How do I get system headers so I can compile something?

Thanks!

Oh, that package is sort of incomplete (just sort of some binaries, hence preAlpha).. I didn't release the "full" version yet...I've got to work out some perl bugs. I've been able to compile with success though. I'll post the full version soon when I'm satisfied that most things are working correctly.:)

Another note, the headers are in the GPL source. My full version will include the headers.:)

I have re-worked the ramdisk image (initrd) and it removes the hdd image from the /boot partition on successful reboot and installation. This will free up the space we then need to get the likes of Debian onto the box via the updater. What order does it update the box in? Maybe I need to ping this in the updater thread?
