Hello! I just got an Zilog eZ80 development board. It just works fine with Windows, but at home I am running Linux. So, does anyone know, if there exists a (free) compiler for the eZ80 for Linux? Wine fails to run the Setup.exe. I also searched the Web with goole, without success so far. :-( Wolfgang
