I’m downloading a toolchain from the Angstrom site. It is downloading at less than 20kb/s. To confirm it’s not my connection speed, I started a DL from TI’s SDK area. 1.5gb download at 1.5mb/s and its almost done.
Is there anywhere else to get the angstrom toolchains? Is this stuff hosted on someones 56k modem connected 386?
If you'd provide the link to the download I'll see what kind of speeds I get...

I can confirm that the download speed is below 20 KB/sec for me as well.

Thanks for the confirmation Jim. I noticed the dl speeds are better here…
but unfortunatly the toolchains are not hosted there.
To anyone with control over the toolchains location, can they be hosted somewhere else? Mabey on Git?
It's on a shared server, the remaning 99.99MBit/s of bandwidth are getting used for some popular android download.
You can generated a custom SDK with http://narcissus.angstrom-distribution.org/ or have a look at http://dominion.thruhere.net/koen/angstrom/toolchains/
are only toolchains for 64 Bit Linux , right?
I don't think they will run in my 32-Bit Ubuntu?
Could you please point to some link with instructions on how to extract this 64 bit and instructions to build angstrom for DevKit8000?

It's right there at http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/toolchains/
and instructions to build angstrom for DevKit8000?
The devkit people never bothered to push devkit support into angstrom, so no go. It would be really easy to add, though.
I have finally build the angstrom console-image with this 64 bit tools, and it is working.
Bitbake seems to download the files, apply the patches, build the packages and remove the sources for some reason leaven only the patches.
I could not find the sources, and i would like to add my application to the rootfs and run it during init, how could i build and keep the sources and how could i add or find a basic recipe to add my app?

Where should the sources be stored?
