I feel like such a pirate right now ;-)
Crossdev succeeds for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu to x86_64-pc-linux-bionic.
After this, I'll probably be working on a cross-armv7a version to
support e.g. the BeagleBoard. Next, will probably be the PandaBoard
once the Android developers release their SMP code with Honeycomb. I
also just read that Intel is pushing for an Android-based tablet to be
released . The article is speculative, but it isn't the only one
speculating. If this is true, it would mean Bionic (Honeycomb or
Iced-cream) will probably have better support for x86* from the
Currently ironing out a couple of bugs with cross-compiling busybox.
It's mainly just a few kernel headers missing, which I presume will be
the main source of 'bugs'. Adding missing kernel headers is a bit of a
process because it requires running them through the
bionic/libc/kernel/tools/clean_header.py script . I have actually
created a seperate ebuild for sys-kernel/bionic-kernel-headers due to
the recent kerfuffle about licensing . So rather than use the stock
sys-kernel/linux-headers, I'm using the 'cleansed' versions that come
with the bionic libc.
I figure that it will be safe to release an overlay once at least one
arch is ~, busybox compiles without too much complaining, and I have a
qemu image / build instructions to distribute.
Would love to have some people willing to try building for other
arches at that point. Currently, it looks like x86*, arm and sh will
work 'out of the box' (not really OOTB, but supported with bionic
kernel headers). However, there are libm headers for mips, ppc and
sparc64 as well.
