Thread: Compiling for the WL500g with cygwin?

  1. #1

    Compiling for the WL500g with cygwin?

    Is it possible to compile programs for the WL500g with cygwin (under WinXP)?
    If yes, which extra packages need to be instaled?

    thanks,

    No, you would need the complete toolchain linked against the cygwin lib.
    I dont know if its even possible, you would need the complete sourcecode from all toolchain programs.

    thanks for the tip...

    humm.. this colinux stuff looks promissing...
    but it also requires lot of disk space...
    Is it possible to boot an ISO ditro like knoppix with colinux?

    btw, does anyone use vmware?

    Linux distro

    Knoppix 3.7 works great on Microsoft Virtual PC. I tried Knoppix several times with the latest VMWare but gave it up, it worked highly unstable.
