Re: IMHO, cross-compile/toolchain examples should use non-x86 arches
Hi Sean,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Your summary is correct as far as current ADT installer's capabilities goes. I think in the ADT manual we talked about besides using ADT installer to setup an application cross development environment, user can also using a toolchain tarball. This is discussed in another email thread atm. Originally the toolchain tarball sysroot is pretty much canned so very limited for user to customize to match their target images. For 1.3, Mark has added the capability to generate the toolchain tarball that matching the target image via bitbake -c populate_sdk image. As far as eclipse plug-in goes, you can specify you desired toolchain and sysroot combination whether they're installed via adt-installer or toolchain tarball.
BTW, one of the features that we will be working on for adt-installer is to make it base on sstate instead of the current opkg and ipk adt-repo. In this way, we eliminate the dependency on particular ipk package format also, gives user the flexibility to customized their sysroot instead of the the predefined images rootfs.

Subject: RE: [yocto] IMHO, cross-compile/toolchain examples should use non-x86 arches
Jessica and Mark,
Thank you for the responses. It appears that there is another thread on the same subject. Let me feedback what I am seeing and hearing:
The quick start guide
html) and various presentation slides showing the Poky Work Flow / Yocto Project Development Environment show an output of the image and Application Development SDK. When I include the option to build the SDK in a Yoicto1.3 Danny build, I see in the /../tmp/deploy/sdk is the ADT installer. To me the ADT installer installs the toolchain and the rootfs to build applications.
Also, the ADT installer only installs a rootfs based on pre-set images like core-image-sato, core-image-minimal, etc., and doesn't address a custom rootfs that may have more or less support than the standard images. The Eclipse plug in adds the capability to Eclipse to link to the toolchain and rootfs installed by the ADT installer.
Does this sound correct?
