Unfortunately I have not had any experience cross compiling myself, however you may find that the SVN trunk (eventually player 2.2) is easier to make work as it uses thew new cmake build system. At this stage the code in trunk is pretty much the same as 2.1 apart from the build system, so should be as stable.

I have been able to cross-compile the player server fine with shared libraries disabled, but when I try cross-compiling without disabling them, I get an interesting error:

/root/gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/staging_dir/bin-ccache/../lib/gcc/arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi/4.1.1/../../../../arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi/bin/ld: warning: libplayerutils.so.2, needed by /root/player-2.1.0/client_libs/libplayerc++/.libs/libplayerc++.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)
/root/player-2.1.0/client_libs/libplayerc++/.libs/libplayerc++.so: undefined reference to `interf_to_str'
/root/player-2.1.0/client_libs/libplayerc++/.libs/libplayerc++.so: undefined reference to `str_to_interf'

/root/player-2.1.0/client_libs/libplayerc/.libs/libplayerc.so: undefined reference to `itable_init'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Then I am subsequently thrown out of the make process.
I am sure that the libplayerutils.so.2 library should be generated before the compiler grinds to a halt, but the question is, how is it getting lost? And if it wasn't generated before this, what can I do to fix it?

The only reason I want to do this is so that I can cross-compile player client programs against the shared libraries (I got a file format not recognized error off of the normally compiled libplayerc++.so) and then put them on a gumstix, so that I don't have to run them on a desktop or laptop (pretty key to the type of project I am doing).

Let me know if anyone needs more output to get a better grasp of what is going on, and thanks for any help in advance.
