Raspberry Pi Tools for Cross Compiling ... What are the differences?

Sun Jul 29, 2018 2:17 pm

I'm new to RasPi development and cross compiling.

The Raspberry Pi Tools have several directories or paths such as ...

Code: Select all

tools/arm-bcm2708/arm-bcm2708hardfp-linux-gnueabi/
tools/arm-bcm2708/arm-rpi-4.9.3-linux-gnueabihf/
tools/arm-bcm2708/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-raspbian/
(For all the path options see: https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools/tr ... rm-bcm2708)

I do not understand the compiler differences and how to determine which one to choose.

I'm learning with some online cross compile examples/tutorial.

One tutorial uses: tools/arm-bcm2708/arm-rpi-4.9.3-linux-gnueabihf/

Another tutorial uses: tools/arm-bcm2708/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-raspbian/

Would someone please post an overview of the differences?

Thank you!
Chris
