Setting up a native compiling toolchain

Post by dynamic1969 » Sun Oct 11, 2009 11:02 am

Hi,

I am opening up this thread, to consolidate information for a "HowTo" to set up a native toolchain.
We will move this information into our Samsung TV Hacking WIKI, once we have managed to get a working HowTo documented here.

I believe that CowenChicken had already briefly mentioned a possibility, using debootstrap & chroot to run a native toolchain directly on the TV.

Regards

Great! This is almost a full HowTO!

Any experience on this, run from a Debian derivate such as Xubuntu ?

Problems that I found:

Code: Select all

mkdir -p /dtv/usb/sda2/armel-chroot
#required dir init

mount -t nfs <server>:/armel-chroot /dtv/usb/sda2/armel-chroot
# -o nolock required!

/dtv/usb/sda2/busybox chroot /dtv/usb/sda2/armel-chroot /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage
#Gives Error:
#mknod: `//test-dev-null': Operation not permitted
#E: Cannot install into target '/' mounted with noexec or nodev

Code: Select all

I: Configuring mount...
I: Configuring initscripts...
I: Configuring sysvinit...
W: Failure while configuring required packages.
On TV. Will try second method :)

Hello, I'm getting:

Code: Select all

# $busybox chroot $armel_chroot /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage
I: Installing core packages...
W: Failure trying to run:  dpkg --force-depends --install /var/cache/apt/archives/dpkg_1.14.28_armel.deb
dpkg.log says:

dpkg --force-depends --install /var/cache/apt/archives/dpkg_1.14.28_armel.deb
It says:

I got similar closing/writing errors when I tried manually install eg. the libc6 (which by the way is installed in the first stage, I don't get it why it complains)

Hello, I really want this to work, so I have two options:

1) http://franciscobenitezleon.wordpress.c ... mic-koala/

2) someone who has succesfully installed Lenny, does an image of it and makes it available for download.

I'm going to try 1) now.
