Re: how to build root filesystem for ixp425


My main problem is that i am reading how tos  from an official site (Freebsd Arm) that are not working, at least for the moment, at all. I want to find out if i am doing something wrong or not.
Actually i think i know why i get this error. I am building executable for little-endian machine but ixp425 is big-endian. The problem is that when i am giving the TARGET_* options to the make command line the system uses i386 cc which is not capable of understanding -mbig-endian option.

Best Regards,

NetBSD has its own mechanisms to build root file system by 'one click'.
Unfortunaly I don't know about FreeBSD cross-compilation technique.

Look to the /sbin/init source code. It should be somehow simple to
understand what the error code 8 means.
