I need to rebuild my compiler tools for a set of BBB running a year old version of Angstrom. I have installed the latest version of the tools and discovered that there a number of changes that make it impossible to compile applications to run on the older Angstrom distribution including switching to hard floats and included libraries etc. I have tried using git to clone the source from the correct time period but can not get it to build correctly.
Is there any way to download a distribution from the July 2013 time period that includes the correct setup tools.
The Beaglebones are running:
Linux version 3.8.13 (koen@rrMBP) (gcc version 4.7.3 2030205 (prerelease) Linaro GCC 4.7.2013.02-01 )
The functioning compiler tools are gcc version 4.7.3 20130105 (prerelease) ( Linaro GCC 4-7-4013.02-01)
The non-functioning compiler tools are gcc version 4.8.3 20131202 (prerelease) (Linaro GCC 4.8-2013.12)
