Hi Raul,

I'll Cc: the crossgcc list to let others participate in our discussion.
I hope you don't mind.

Which BSP do you mean, one of the Phytec ones? Note that we have several
hardware supported with OSELAS.BSPs.

You don't need 'ptxdist images' when you build toolchains, just running
'ptxdist go' is enough. Sorry that there isn't better documentation at
the moment, but we are working on it.

Well, to build a toolchain for an xscale, use one of the following:

$ ptxdist select ptxconfigs/arm-xscale-linux-gnueabi_gcc-4.1.2_glibc-2.5_linux-2.6.18.ptxconfig

for a little endian toolchain with EABI, or 

$ ptxdist select ptxconfigs/arm-iwmmx-linux-gnueabi_gcc-4.1.2_glibc-2.5_linux-2.6.18.ptxconfig

for a little endian toolchain with EABI and iWMMXt extensions, or

$ ptxdist select ptxconfigs/armeb-xscale-linux-gnueabi_gcc-4.1.2_glibc-2.5_linux-2.6.18.ptxconfig

for a big endian toolchain with EABI (e.g. for Intel IXPs).

Then just run "ptxdist go" and you'll find your toolchain in
