Description James Couzens 2005-02-24 07:26:39 UTC
Everything works great until crossdev wants to go look at the source code directory for GCC in /var/tmp/portage.

The problem as I see it is that either GCC has a naughty ebuild or cross dev needs to try a little harder to find a match rather than some explicit static value.

I have:


crossdev expects to find:


It looks to me like its the GCC ebuild that resulted in the incompatible and shortened naming convention, however it negatively impacts crossdev so perhaps something could be done to make it a little more robust?

My configuration:

Installed from 2004.3
Profile: /usr/portage/profiles/hardened/x86
Kernel: 2.6.10 (from not gentoo sources and not hardened either)
If you need more info just let me know.  FYI I'm going to attempt to contribute back an ARM patch since thats what I'm currently working on hence my interest in crossdev.

Reproducible: Always

Oh I should that (althought I suppose its obvious and or inferred) a simple symlink making the directory that crossdev is looking for appear works and cross dev happily works and proceeds to build.

Additionally I was trying to build --arch=i586 with my Soekris in mind

<=crossdev-0.4 is no longer supported ... please upgrade to crossdev-0.9 and if
you're still having problems, re-open the bug and re-assign to
