GCC cross compile to MIPS





thnn
Has anyone tried using GCC to cross compile c code to the MIPS architecture?

I am curious as to how you do this. The compiler gives "bad value (mips32) for -march switch" when I try and use it

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on an x86-64 machine, but would like to compile some code for the MIPS ISA.
I don't actually need to link or assemble the code, just compile it, however having the ability to link and assemble the code if I wanted to, would be desirable.

You should seriously check out crosstool by Kegel. It's a collections of script already setup to cross-compile. If your architecture isn't there, it's still easier to modify crosstool to do the job for you.
If you don't use cross-tool you will have to wonder about bootstraping building toolchains, gcc and all the utils. Not worth it imho.
