compile OPEN-R toolchain with recent distros
Lately nobody seems to be able to compile the OPEN-R toolchain with ease
because gcc <= 3.4 is required and most distros bundle gcc 4.
So, I've patched the Sony script to build the toolchain so that it is
compilable on any platform. It makes use of gentoo's gcc patchset (this does
not mean you need gentoo to use it). This release also upgrades from gcc
3.3.2 to gcc 3.3.6.
All required files are available from:
(this sourceforge project has other stuff, I just reused it to redistribute
If you find any problem with this script, please let me know.
- Oops, I should have announced, since the OPEN-R BBS has gone offline,
we are also now mirroring the OPEN-R SDK files from our installation
I've also rewritten the installation script to make things a bit more
streamlined than the original Sony script :) I've tested this so far
in Mac OS X, FC3, FC5, and cygwin, haven't seen any oddities with it
Nuno: I've also been working on a 3.4.6 based toolchain, and have
things *almost* working. I can actually get Sony sample code to
build and run, but something in Tekkotsu's screwing up, which I
haven't been able to track down yet (and probably won't be getting
around to anytime soon) But I have a feeling once we get 3.4
working, we might be able to move up to 4.x pretty smoothly ;) I'll
send you some of the build scripts I've been working on.
(for reference, the 3.4.6 script I speak of builds on work Nuno did a
while back when he and I both made a previous attempt to update the
