New compiler tools release: cris-dist-1.20
There's a new release of the compiler tools. For GNU/Linux,
this release is expected to be used together with linux-headers
for linux-2.4.14 (included in cris-dist-linux-headers-1.20.tar.gz),
but there should be no issues using this release together with
older kernels. It has been tested together with deboard_lx-R2_1_0.
No compatibility issues are expected from cris-dist-1.19 to
cris-dist-1.20; you do not have to re-build anything.
Upgrading is definitely recommended.
- A bug fixed related to the linker option --export-dynamics
(alias -E, alias gcc option -rdynamic), which caused pppd to
be mislinked (getting a SEGV on startup) and "hello, world"
linked with -E crashed the linker.
The compiler tools are available in five forms: as a source
SRPM, as a binary RPM, as a binary .deb package, Debian source
description and as "pure" sources; gzipped tar-balls. The
binary RPM is suitable for i386-type host machines
(i86-pc-linux-gnu) running Red Hat Linux release 6.2 to
(at least) 7.2. The Debian binary package is similarly suitable
for PC:s running releases starting with Potato to (at least)
The SRPM and RPM are available at:
The Debian binary package is at:
The Debian source package files (which require the source
tarballs below to be retrieved separately) is at:
The corresponding source tar-balls are in three parts at:
If you need to install from the tar-ball sources (though the
binary or source packages are strongly recommended), first
unpack the cris-dist-1.20.tar.gz tar-ball, then "cd cris-dist-1.20"
and unpack the latter two tar-balls in that directory.
Further installation instructions are available in the file
README in the cris-dist-1.20.tar.gz tar-ball.
Older releases are moved to the subdirectory "old"
("old/debian-dsc" for old Debian build description files) with
every new release.
