Embedded Linux - Toolchain

The next step for our OSK system is to find or create a toolchain
we need a toolchain for ARM processor

Building a new toolchain can be complicated mission
in general you should download:
then configure and build a binary image of your toolschain (future post)
for our purpose we can use an already made toolchain from here

extract the archive:

# tar -xjvf ${DOWLOADDIR}/arm-linux-gcc-3.4.1.tar.bz2

look at the path: ${EXTRACTEDDIR}/usr/local/arm/3.4.1/bin
(all the binary tools to compile, link and debug an ARM code)

add the above path to your PATH environment variable :

# export PATH=/usr/local/arm/3.4.1/bin/:$PATH

now we can build everything with this toolchain
