A standalone toolchain is available for users who would like to do development outside of OpenEmbedded. This is particularly useful for kernel development, or for building very simple C programs. The toolchain installs itself to /usr/local/angstrom/ so it's very easy to remove. To determine if you need the 64-bit or 32-bit toolchain, run "uname -a". If it says i386 or i686, you need the 32-bit version. If it says x86_64, you need the 64-bit version.
- Download the toolchain from Kosagi's build system: 64-bit 32-bit
- Extract it
- sudo tar xvjf angstrom-v20110703-*-linux-armv5te-linux-gnueabi-toolchain.tar.bz2 -C /
To use the toolchain, you must set several environment variables, including the PATH. Run these commands in your terminal, or add them to a script:
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/angstrom/arm/bin export CROSS_COMPILE=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi- export ARCH=arm
