Cross compiler packages

Postby solskogen » Thu Feb 11, 2021 7:45 pm

I've created and uploaded a hand full of PKGBUILDs to AUR to use on Arch Linux for cross compiling to Arch Linux ARM. My motivation was to use a fast x86_64 machine as a distcc worker for Pi4/Pi400. You will still need to create the symlinks in /usr/lib/distcc manually.

Code: Select all
ln -s /usr/bin/distcc /usr/lib/distcc/aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu-g++
ln -s /usr/bin/distcc /usr/lib/distcc/aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc
ln -s /usr/bin/distcc /usr/lib/distcc/armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-g++
ln -s /usr/bin/distcc /usr/lib/distcc/armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-gcc


Comments are welcome :)

If you want to use an x86_64 machine as a distcc volunteer, the recommended method is to put Arch ARM's official toolchain on your x86_64 box. The distcc host is your Arch ARM box (all flavors supported). Recommend you install these with distccd-arch-arm available in the AUR.

My thought behind this was to replace the existing aarch64/armv7 cross packages in Arch Linux, and use them instead of the official ones that uses the cross-tool. I have now tested with your PKGBUILD for the raspi4 kernel and it compiles and works with and without distcc :)

Can you post the PKGBUILD after you modified it to use the toolchain?
