Building rpi armv6 toolchain on macOS
Sat Mar 11 21:06:00 GMT 2017
Thanks for the quick reply!
With the master build, I run into an error quite quickly (following instructions from crosstool-ng.org).
[DEBUG] ==> Executing: 'mkdir' '-p' '/build'
[ALL ] mkdir: /build: Permission denied
- Full log: https://scriptreactor.com/rpi1-master-build.log
Any idea what's going on here?
Trying out with your adjusted settings on 1.22 for now. Will take a while ^^
