help with error on mac while building ps3toolchain
help with error on mac while building ps3toolchain –
Hi I am new to linux and using this ps3 project and a book to educate my self. I was wondering if someone could help with an error while building ps3toolchain on a mac 10.6.7 with X11 and macports installed. I have followed the directions from the psl1ght website and made it through to this point.
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture ppc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
lipo: can't open input file: /var/folders/+T/+Tx8o5sgHsW4nQEFvuOWrE+++TI/-Tmp-//ccen9CZm.out (No such file or directory)
any help would be great.
thanks for your time!
i too, get hung on that exact message, any advice would be very helpful
glibc may be the issue
glibc may be the issue –
I believe i have figured out that i need glibc to cross compile for the powerpc64 arch that the ps3 is. I have not been able to configure it properly though.
i understand that i need to set the --build to powerpc64 but i don't know how to properly do that.
i believe it would be:
./configure --build -powerpc64
but that doesn't change the build in the configure that displays.
i have done gcc --version
i686-apple-darwin10-gcc-4.2.1 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5664)
which is the target and does not need to be changed. I just need clarification of what the ps3's --build configuration is?
binutils not for OsX use Newlib
binutils not for OsX use Newlib –
Even though not many have posted here with Mac OsX issues I still believe this all is for fun and education so i will post this in case anyone references this.
If you are trying to build the dependencies for the Ps3toolchain or PSL1GHT. You should be aware that binutilis which links the C compiler to cross compile doesn't work on OsX something with Mach.0 in darwin. So I have found a new alternative from here:
Cross compiler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
read through the page and it will even tell you how to configure your gcc correctly. remember if you have used macports or have installed gcc already do a 'make distclean' in the directory to remove any old source that was installed. reconfigure gcc after installing newlib and I hope many issues will go away after this.
I am attempting all of this now and if I can get this to work i will write out what i have done and how you too may attempt to build this .
