For those developing for the Aleph which OS are you using to host the toolchain, Mac, Linux, ... Windows?
I'd like to be able to develop both apps (avr32) and modules (blackfin).
Building the avr32 toolchain from source on Mac OS X 10.10 was fairly straight forward (makefile fixes) and things seems to work well (tested by rebuilding source for whitewhale and earthsea euro modules and re-flashing them). Getting the blackfin toolchain built under OS X looks to be a lot of work (it wants a case sensitive filesystem )...
So I switched to trying Ubuntu 14.04. Getting the precompiled blackfin toolchain running was easy but it took a lot of trial and error / hacking to get the avr32 toolchian compiled as above. In the end I had to build an older version of texinfo (version 4.13) and hack one of the files generated by gperf (removing
__inline__ in one place) to get things compiling.
I'm not 100% confident in my Ubuntu environment yet after trying to use a release of bees 0.6.0 I built (lot's of hanging problems when loading scenes). I'm new to the Aleph so some of my problems with the resulting build could well just be pilot error.
What platforms are you using?
