GNU compiler for PowerPC

Started by Unknown October 11, 2006
Could somebody provide me with info where to get GNU compiler for
Cygwin for PowerPC target? What's usual practice? Do I need to download
source and compile it myself? Or is such compiler standard part of
binary free distribution? Thanks.

<http://www.macraigor.com/full_gnu.htm> is one full distribution. But as a rule I build it myself.

I highly recommend the Microcross Visual X-Tools. It is a complete GNU/GCC implementation with IDE and GDB implementation. Not free, but it could be a lot easier than putting together your own. Scott DISCLAIMER: In all fairness I must say that we are a Microcross partner.

If you have a non-Intel Mac with OSX, it's available with the operating system. For Cygwin I compiled my own tools (though Linux is a better platform for the GNU tools). -- Tauno Voipio tauno voipio (at) iki fi
