Cross Compiling environment/distribution
On various forums I saw that a lot of people would like to have a cross compiling environment which they could use to build programs, such as Odyssey, sgit or Timberwolf. I am thinking to try to create a linux distribution for that, which everyone can use. I don't know how big this project is, but I will try. If this succeeds, then it will be available to download from os4coding. So, I would like to ask you
  • if anyone build such an environment and would like to help with tests and info.
  • Do, you know any good guide for that?
  • Do you have any other proposals?
  • Which linux distribution would you like to use, Debian, Ubuntu etc?
  • Should I use a 32bit or 64bit environment?
  • Should it have gcc 4.x or gcc 5.x?
Found two guides, one by zero-hero and one by Nicolas Mendoza, which are old enough, but they are a good start.

I started to set one up on Windows but quickly ran into a problem: no CatComp for Windows.

@mritter0 If you have ruby installed under cygwin you can use my ruby based CatComp replacement: https://github.com/salass00/rubytools

Re: Cross Compiling environment/distribution
I created the very first version of a virtual machine with Debian 64bit and all the necessary files to cross compile programs for AmigaOS 4. I call it AmigaOS Cross Compiling Environment (AmiCCE) and you can download it from here (~2.7GB). You can login with the username amicce with password amicce. The above file is a VirtualBox machine, which you can import to an installed Virtualbox in your machine. To do that you run Virtualbox and go to the menu File > Import Appliance and you give this file at the popup window. If you need more help, please tell me. Also, proposals would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Cross Compiling environment/distribution
Thank you for testing it. Geany is configured to compile the projects, but it might need more care here and there. Didn't test the share folder, but as I have an AmigaOS 4 system on the same lan and AmiCCE has ssh installed, I managed to connect to it using pftp and openssh, and got the compiled files for a few tests. Hope others test it too and propose things to add. Surely on my todo list is an updated binutils and gcc for the x86_64bit. I will try to find some help from Kas1e... Hope he will find some time to help me on that!
