problem with arm-linux-gcc 4.3.2

Atit
I got stuck with this problem for so many days.

I downloaded arm-linux-gcc-4.3.2.tgz from this friendlyarm.net website and
put it in /tmp folder. Then I followed this instruction.

http://equallybad.blogspot.com/2010/02/project-how-to-setup-default-dev-...

I untar the file with this command.

root@ubuntu:/tmp# sudo tar xfzv arm-linux-gcc-4.3.2.tgz -C /

Everything went well and I got every stuffs stored in
/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/...

Then, I added the path with export

root@ubuntu:/tmp# export PATH=/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin:$PATH

At last, I tried this command to check whether the OS can see the package
or not by typing this and got the following error.

root@ubuntu:/tmp# arm-linux-gcc -v
/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-linux-gcc: line 3:
/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc: No such file or
directory
/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-linux-gcc: line 3:
/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc: Success

I don't know what was wrong. I think that I follow the manual step by step.
BTW, I am using Ubuntu 10.04.

I can not continue my work. Please tell me what did I do wrong.
Thank you in advance.

I am curious about where you have placed this.  

If you type this command in at the beginning of your work session it should
work.  When you shut your session down it will be lost.

Either place this command in your .profile or bashrc file (depends on your
Linux host distro) or write a little scrip that you run each time you want
to do some cross-compilation.

Thank you for your reply.

I typed in the export command before I ran arm-linux-gcc
and I got the above error.

Then, I added it into .bashrc and re-login.
I still had no luck.

I asked my friend to try the arm-linux-gcc package
and he said he has no any problem.

I wonder why this happened to my machine.
Since the error is 'No such file or directory',
I supposed that the path is working but the cross compiler
try to call some program that may not exist in my machine.

Do I need to pre-install something before using this
cross compiler package?

davef
There are tools that need to be loaded to do cross-compilation on your
linux host.

Unfortunately, the list is at home.

From memory:

build-essentials
??
??
ncurses-5 ?? to look at menuconfig

Look for tutorials for ARM cross-compiling

davef
apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool

Atit
davef,

Thank you for your reply.

I tried to install the build-essential as you suggested,
but I still has no luck. The same error appeared.

I am keep looking for solution. 
If you have any other suggestion, please let me know.

Try this:

Check if "/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc" exist on
your machine:
$ls -la /usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/ | grep arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc

Check if "/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc" is an
executable: 
$sudo chmod 777 /usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc

Create your own symbolic link:
$sudo ln -s /usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc
/bin/arm-linux-gcc 


I'm using the cross compiler on ubuntu without any problem.

PS: I didn't test any command above.

Atit
Thank you for all of your kindly responses.

I tried many times to solve the problem and I finally solved it.
I would like to post my solution here as a reference to someone that has
the same problem as mine.

I decided to uninstall Ubuntu 10.04 (latest version) and 
re-install Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala).

Then, I followed the same steps as I explained in the first post
and it works without any error.

I think my problem was Ubuntu 10.04.

If there are someone faced with this kind of problem,
Backward your linux version may solve the problem.

Hi,
I solved a problem, that seems identical to yours, installing ia32-libs as
recommended here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1026373
Regards,
Giuseppe

Abdul
apt-get install ia32-libs 
fixed the problem with Ubuntu 10.04

eduardo
apt-get install ia32-libs 
fixed the problem with Ubuntu 11.04 too

Thanks for share the response. I was going crazy.

I was using ubuntu 9.04, and this error show up when I installed ubuntu
11.04.

Hi
I have 2440 package and I tried to install arm-linux-4.3.2-gcc and I almost
succeed but when I try to compile any code it does not find include
libraries so could you please tell me where should I get them and where
should I copy them so the package can see those libraries??

Thanks

wind
try sudo apt-get install ia32-lib

vinay
apt-get install ia32-libs 

Fixed the same problem @ ubuntu 10.10

Thanks you dude

With the above solution 

apt-get install ia32-libs 

fixed the gcc issue in Ubuntu 12.04.

But still the CROSS COMPILER issue exists with Ubuntu 12.04.
"Overriding commands for target"
"ignorig old commands for target"
Kbuild.include: No such file or directory

Please let me know if anyone else has solved this issue.

thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I have done all the above suggested apt-get installs, but the below issue
exists in 11.04, 11.10, 12.04 ubuntu versions...while i give make ....

Hi all,

It worked successfully...

It might be helpful for all who would try to build now:

Always try to do things in the root folder.

sudo apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

sudo su //will help you stay in root.
cd /root //start things in the root folder. I do not know what is the
reason
root@ubuntu //it would look similar to this.
create a folder under /root .. 

eg: /root/linux/
copy the tar file under this folder
untar the linux jar file
go inside linux-2.6.32.2
export the path of cross compiler
now type make.

It will and should work..

Thanks...

Hi All,
It worked successfully for Ubuntu 13.04.

Thanks a lot

This issue root cause is 32 bit edition GCC can't run on the 64 bit edition
host OS without 32 bit lib support. So the solution is install the 32 bit
lib. apt-get install ia32-libs.

This case of Ubuntu 13.10 amd64

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool
$ sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

it fixed my problem

Mathew
Step 1:

Uncompressed the installation package
  $ sudo tar zxpf arm-linux-gcc-4.3.2.tgz
or
  # tar zxpf arm-linux-gcc-4.3.2.tgz

Step 2:

Copy the "arm" folder to the /usr/local directory. This is not mandatory.
  $ sudo cp -r /home/mathew/Documents/usr/local/arm /usr/local
or
  # cp -r /home/mathew/Documents/usr/local/arm /usr/local

Step 3:

Before installing we need some essential tools and library files   
  # apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool
  # apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0  
or
  $ sudo apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool
  $ sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0  

Step 4:

Add the path of the arm linux gcc compiler by
  # export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin
or
  $ sudo export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/arm/4.3.2/bin
  
Step 5:

Verify the installation by
  $ arm-linux-gcc -v

Worked for me on Ubuntu 16.04, AMD64 architecture:
$ sudo apt-get install libc6-i386

libc6-i386 is a dependency for ia32-libs, lib32z1, lib32ncurses5 and so on
mentioned above. So, it seems, you need just a libc6-i386 to please your
GCC on Ubuntu AMD64/i386. :)
And probably libc6-s390 for IBM zSeries.
