    Making a cross-compiler for ARM

    Hi all,

    sorry if posting in a wrong area but this seemed like the sort of place to ask this kind of question.

    I'm interested in generating/building a cross-compiler for ARM.

    I want my target binaries to be for ARM, and for them to be compiled on a host x86_64 machine.

    I have read these links:
    http://www.ailis.de/~k/archives/19-A...ing-howto.html
    http://www.kegel.com/crosstool/
    http://linux.bytesex.org/cross-compiler.html
    http://frank.harvard.edu/~coldwell/toolchain/

    but I didn't get up-to-date information on building one. Then I found crosstool-ng script which seems to be what everyone's using but nobody really mentions it or how they're using it.

    I'm hoping to get some clarifications on how to build a crosscompiler that works just like the one I have right now but that can compile on a x86/x86_64 machine (because compiling natively takes hours). Preferably in a form of a executable script, but vague theoretical answers are also ok as long as they're useful and/or constructive.

    Can anyone help a fellow noob out here? It's my first post after all.

    Thanks in advance,
    Shark
