Dev toolchain
« on: November 11, 2012, 07:45:54 am »
Is there a linux/cygwin/mac os toolchain available for download yet? While we're waiting for our units, maybe the some of us might want to dabble in doing some ports or homebrew. I know I'd start porting some linux games!

If you want to build your own toolchain for Linux, you can find instructions here.

Another option is to use the OpenDingux toolchain for the Dingoo A320: although the GCW Zero is not binary compatible with the A320, the toolchains are very similar, so something that compiles for the A320 is likely to work on the Zero as well, so all you have to do when the GCW Zero toolchain is released is recompile.

Hope there will be a toolchain for windows too.

Cygwin-based toolchain IS for windows.

I'm trying to build the dev toolchain + rootfs from source but the build is failing about 10 hours into the build (slow machine)

what are the pre-reqs for it? So far I have this, please correct me if I have the wrong version or if there is anything else that needs added.

This is based off a fresh up to date ubuntu 12.10 image x86 nothing else installed, did a make clean and tried agian and it fails in the same spot

sudo apt-get install git bison flex g++ texinfo mercurial subversion


git clone git://github.com/gcwnow/buildroot.git
cd buildroot
make gcw0_defconfig
make


attached is what is erroring out

Your compilation issue seems to be related to a missing ncurses.h include file (provided by libncurses5-dev package afaik)

Why not using the toolchain already compiled for linux and available here  ?

looking specifically for the rootfs, but I want to build the entire package toolchain + rootfs + kernel from source

Tried installing libncurses5-dev and no change

does it fail with the same error ?

Code: [Select]
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/snesfan/buildroot/output/build/host-cmake-2.8.9'
In file included from /home/snesfan/buildroot/output/build/host-cmake-2.8.9/Source/CursesDialog/cmCursesWidget.h:16:0,
                 from /home/snesfan/buildroot/output/build/host-cmake-2.8.9/Source/CursesDialog/cmCursesBoolWidget.h:15,
                 from /home/snesfan/buildroot/output/build/host-cmake-2.8.9/Source/CursesDialog/cmCursesBoolWidget.cxx:12:
/home/snesfan/buildroot/output/build/host-cmake-2.8.9/Source/CursesDialog/cmCursesStandardIncludes.h:32:31: fatal error: ncurses/ncurses.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

I gave it a try, and it works just fine for me on ubuntu 10.10 (32 bits), with all ncurses related packages installed.

I did a make clean and rebuilt, it works now. Thanks!

EDIT:

there's a typo on the kernel source wiki
https://github.com/gcwnow/linux/wiki

is
git clone [email protected]:gcwnow/linux.git
should be
git clone git://github.com/gcwnow/linux.git

Not really. The former works for me.

With [email protected] it says denied due to anon download. You are a contributer so it will probably let you in with your RSA key

At least that's my guess, it denied me till i changed it
