Well, no - the save as dialog specified "Untitled.ecc" and so I typed 
DigiOS. Not a big deal.

With your method above, what happens when gcc calls the assembler and 
linker? I guess (or rather worry) that it will just call 'as' or 'ld' and 
then would hit the native ones, which is why I put the /arm-elf/bin dir at 
the head of the path.

Why does the gcc build process make two copies of the tools anyway, with 
different names? (one set in /[host]/bin has names starting with the 
target, eg arm-elf-gcc, the other set is in /[host]/[target]/shortnames, 
e.g. /[host]/arm-elf/gcc). Baffling.

The only difference is that this time I can't use the scroll lock key to 
pause the output. Same errors. My command line isn't quite the same as 
yours though, since '/' is not the root directory of the drive. It's the 
same as yours except instead of /ARMDigi it is /c/ARMDigi.

hello.c is just cut and pasted from the tutorial :

#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
return 0;

All my mount points are binmode. All my files should have UNIX EOL 
conventions... or what? The docs only talk about being careful that object 
paths are mounted binary, they don't say that certain paths need to be
