where you said this
/ (I'd like to be able to provide a link to a Cygwin-hosted
Linux-target gcc binary that people can simply download and use.
Please contact me if you can provide one. -- mbp)/
I made some tests, using the instructions of Mumit Khan,
and I was able to build a cross gcc for cygwin that creates
code for Linux. I tested this
cross gcc on 2 Windows machines - one NT and one XP, with the purpose of
run distcc on
them and on another 3 Linux machines, all using gcc 3.3.3.
Well, this whole thing worked too damn well, and I was able to
distribute the compilation
of a Gentoo Linux running on my notebook to these 5 machines - 3 Linux
and 2 Windows. I have
compiled the whole KDE 3.3.0, k3b and a lot of stuff, including the
So, I created a RAR file with this cross gcc 18.104.22.168 for
cygwin, whose size is about 19 Mb,
and I like to share it with other people who want to do the same thing.
Once you asked for a link
for such thing... :) But the problem is: I just can't put this file in
my company's server... Would you
like to get this file from me, to make it available in some other site ?
If you do, then pleae contact me, ok ?
