Hi! I am trying to target an ARM based system that will have limited resources. The primary reason why I want to use uclibc instead of gcc is because of the size reduction. Does anybody have any kind of idea how could I accomplish this task? Just for practice and to see what possible problems could arise I tried to compile Ruby against i386-uclibc-linux. The output became quite tragic. http://www.hungarydan.com/output_e.txt Thx Dan

There may be some code of mine for the Gumstix on Rubyforge in the "roast" project. I haven't touched it in months, but I think what was there worked and built Ruby.

Maybe it is a little bit too late but I am afraid I didn't get what you have just now said. What projects and what is that buildroot? pls give me some detailed hints. Thx...

buildroot is the build system for building busybox/uclibc based linux systems. buildroot has ruby as a package, but I have never been able to get it to work correctly. Depending on the version. sometimes it builds fine but doesnt work when you run it. I have tried asking on the buildroot/busybox lists, but no one seems interested. BTW, there is also a python package in buildroot, which is the same way. It builds usually but run into some weird stuff when using it. http://buildroot.uclibc.org/ -prabhakar
