Thanks everyone.  I've actually gotten a build environment and am building myself an empire, one tarball at a time.  Here's my image:

# basic gumstix image

require ${GUMSTIXTOP}/com.gumstix.collection/packages/images/gumstix-basic-image.bb
PR="r8"

IMAGE_INSTALL += "glibc-localedata-en-us glibc-gconv-ansi-x3.110 screen gcc make autoconf automake ckermit minicom perl tcl vim rsync bitbake glibc-charmap-ansi-x3.110-1983 glibc-utils glibc-extra-nss glibc-dbg glibc-pcprofile binutils pkgconfig libtool m4 python gdb strace linux-libc-headers-dev gcc-symlinks binutils-symlinks diffutils libc6-dev pkgconfig ncurses-dev"

As far as getting a build environment on flash, I just bitbaked an image, extracted the resulting tar file, and then chrooted to the extracted directory.

In other words:

bitbake gumstix-fro-image.bb
cd <path to compact flash>
sudo tar -xzvf ~/gumstix-oe/tmp/deploy/glibc/images/gumstix-custome/verdex/gumstix-fro-image-gumstix-custom-verdex.tar.gz
cd ..
umount <path to compact flash>

then, on the gumstix

mount -t proc proc /media/cf/proc
chroot /media/cf/proc

Then you are in a comfortable environment with out actually configuring the system to boot.

I think I am missing something.

I tried "ipkg install libc6-dev binutils gcc gcc-symlinks make cpp cpp-symlinks" on my Gumstix (verdex XM4)
yesterday, but quickly ran out of space.

I had a 2GB microSD card inserted and mounted, but looked like it was not utilized.

Forgive me for my ignorance, but can you please clarify,
(1) What should I do in my usual build machine (Linux PC)?
(2) What should I do in my Gumstix

Thanks.

in short, "ipkg install libc6-dev binutils gcc gcc-symlinks
make cpp cpp-symlinks"


giving you a complete build environment. done this several times now and it has worked flawlessly.

And I've made a new image.bb with promising results:
/usr/bin/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-gcc

I don't have my stix, but I'll test it tomorrow.

Sorry this is not an answer but I also want to know how to cross-compile GCC and load it up to Gumstix so that I can compile and run directly from Gumstix.

Hey all,

So I would really like to get a nice gnu build environment on my gumstix.  I followed the instructions here  but it did not give me the nice, familiar environment I wish. I bitbaked my own image and made a Hello World .BB and I am now comfortable making my own Image .BB's, but when I include GCC in the list of packages to install, I get, instead, cc1.  I don't want to cross compile, I want to build on the system.

Getting just GCC working would be a start, but does anyone have a .BB or at least a suggested assortment of packages to get everything upto Bitbake working on a gumstix?  I'm working with gigs of compact flash here, so I am not worried at all about space.
