Cross-Linker? (host=rs6000-ibm)

Cross-Linker? (host=rs6000-ibm)

Post by Klaus-Georg Ada » Tue, 22 Jun 1993 03:30:36



Hey, Linuxers

As I'm pretty tight on disk space, I'd like to abuse my IBM RS6000
Workstation (running AIX 3.2.3e) to compile the Linux Stuff.
I can use gas 2.1.1 as cross-assembler, but the Gnu Linker frome the
binutils-2.2.1 distribution won't configure with --target=i486-linux.
Now two questions:

1. will it link my linux stuff just the same, or

2. does anybody know of an alternative cross-linker for the RS6000?

Any help appreciated.

Any chance that these changes will find their way back into the "main"
binutils distribution?

The same question applies to libc.

From what I have seen, RS/6000 is big endian, ie. "the other way round".
I have been trying to write a "portable" IFF-ILBM bitmap reader, I got
it working on my PC under DOS (yuck!) so when I came here I though an
IBM RS/6k would use the same format as an IBM PC. My program tells me
it doesn't...

Ok... I've played a bit with gas-1.38.1l, binutils-1.9l, and tools-2.7
and hacked them (I think the things I've done are relatively clean) to
work on our SGI systems (big-endian).  If anybody wants the patches just
e-mail me.  One caveat: The utilities seem to produce correct output
(I've used a gcc cross-compiler to compile/assemble/link some small
programs using shared and static libraries) but I can't test the output
on a real Linux box since I still don't have one......

1. IBM RS6000 43P-100 , looking to buy a used RS6000 machine

Looking to buy a used RS6000

Hello people,

I am a newbie to AIX , just cleared AIX test 191 , was practising on a
old (leased from a friend)powerstation 220 for the test.

Now i am interested in getting a used RS6000 machine as i planning to
load AIX 5L, version5.1 on it and add it to my home network . of a
linux/2K setup. This machine will be mainly used to learn RS6000
installation/configuration(which i already know to an extent),
internetworkign with linux and windows platforms.

I found IBM RS6000 43P-100 100mhz/160mb/2.2GB/FD/CD on ebay . Will
this work with a regular VGA monitor?
I heard all the 43P's and above are PCI based and work with regular
monitors and keyboards and not IBM propriety ones. Please help , or
suggest a different configuration ,

thanks
spk
