I was wondering if it would be possible to package this up in a way that
would be easy to install.
For e.g., a cross-toolchain package, which requires all the other
packages -- gcc, binutils, etc. (not sure how to deal with glibc in that
context). So, you can just do:
yum install cross-toolchain-arm
and, you have everything you need.
We have been experimenting with packaging our GNUPro tools as one big RPM. We're
currently holding the One-Big-RPM vs. Multiple-Not-So-Big-RPMS debate, but we
actually have built a cross toolchain and packaged it as an RPM, since you can do
that in an SRPM; if you have multiple SRPMS you have to have some synchronization
logic for the bootstrapping and we don't have that currently.
It's not aligned with the Fedora toolchain, but it's close. It's currently
package with gcc-4.2.1, binutils-2.17 and glibc-2.6. I'm also pretty sure it's
been built using a mock chroot, so getting all this going in koji is going to be an
"interesting" exercise. But I'm willing to give it a shot. Well, me and
