setting up a cross compile

I was curious if anyone has insight into the issue I am having.

I have setup LinuxMintDebian in a VMWare session on my Mac. I then went and installed gcc/g++ with an apt-get install build-essential

I then went here Robert’s kernel build and did the following:

dpkg --add-architecture i386

wget -c https:``//releases.linaro.org/14.03/components/toolchain/binaries/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8-2014.03_linux.tar.xz

tar xf gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8-2014.03_linux.tar.xz

export CC=`pwd`/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-``4.8``-``2014``.03_linux/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-

However, when I do the test

${CC}gcc --version

I get the following:

/root/toolchain/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8-2014.03_linux/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc: No such file or directory

Yes, I can do an ls and see the file at the location it specifies:
ls /root/toolchain/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8-2014.03_linux/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc

Gives this:
/root/toolchain/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8-2014.03_linux/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc

The wiki indicates an error is the libraries not loaded, but I got no error from the dpkg command that was indicated in the wiki

Is there something else I missed?

did you actually install the lib's listed?

sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386
libncurses5:i386 zlib1g:i386

wget -c

from the dpkg command that was indicated in the wiki

Regards,

I had interpreted the command listed in the table:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
as what was to install them. I realized now that was in error.

I did an apt-get install gcc-multilibs and it is now working.

Thank you
