Re: [gpsd-users] Trying to cross-compile for arm

Hi guys,

I got it now. So this is how I did it.

I used the linaro compiler and sysroot and crosscompiled ncurses following this:
However I added "--with-termlib" to the configure statement so that libtinfo is build separately. I copied the .so files to the sysroot's /lib and setup my .scons-option-cache like this:

libgpsmm = False
python = False
prefix = '/home/lukas/sysroot-linux-gnueabi/usr/'
target = 'arm-linux-gnueabihf'
sysroot = '/home/lukas/sysroot-linux-gnueabi'

Best regards

Hi Lukas,

I have successfully cross-compiled gpsd-3.10 for XScale/ARM but, of
course, every system is different and cross-compiling can be a very
painful experience.

There's some information the gpsd's build.txt file:

"Depending on how your distribution packages ncurses you may also
require libtinfo5, a separate terminfo library."

You said that you cross-compiled ncurses. Did the instructions mention

I suspect that the way you symlink libtinfo to libncurses is wrong.
libtinfo should be a separate library.

As you are certainly aware the error message 'cannot find -ltinfo' means
that the linker cannot find the library. Do you set CFLAGS and LDFLAGS
when running scons?

Depending on your needs you could put 'ncurses = False' into
.scons-option-cache but that way many of the useful command line tools
won't be build.

Happy to provide more help
