GNU/Cross Tools RPMs available
Mon Dec 9 16:22:00 GMT 2002
My intention is not to duplicate anyone else's effort
so I won't even think twice about not doing the avr-elf. :)
A lot of the cross targets are not as lucky as the avr-elf
apparently is. They don't have anyone as dedicated to
produce binary toolsets and I am hoping to fill that gap.
I hope you don't mind but I copied your post and made
it README.avr-elf in /pub/gnucross. It is cited to you
as a post to this mailing list.
If there are other targets that need write ups and
pointers elsewhere, slap me upside the head. ;)
Thanks a lot Eric.
