I have a related question.  I too downloaded the latest buildroot, compiled a hello.c, and moved to the mmc card.  Segmentation fault.  So, following the advice of the Wiki, I downloaded the r773 buildroot.  That worked.  So now I've got a valid toolchain and can compile happily.

My question, however, is how do I compile other packages I'm interested in?  Unless I'm missing something the r773 trunk didn't include any packages.  I've still got the other buildroot in a different directory, but how do I make sure that whatever I compile uses the r773 version of arm-linux-gcc compiler?

Hey Warren,

What was the command you used to compile hello.c?
