I currently own an i.MX6 Quad SABRE Lite board, and I have been trying to obtain the LTIB installer for a few days, but I have been unsuccessful in my search. Could anyone please point me in the right direction?
Hi Victhor, Get the latest BSP from the link below, install LTIB and try the installed toolchain (/opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro-multilib-2011.12/fsl-linaro-toolchain/bin)
i.MX6 Q/D/DL/S L3.0.35_4.0.0 GA release
Is there more description about your question?
I tried to download LTIB from LTIB : Download, but when LTIB prompts me to select the board type, there are no i.MX6 based boards to choose from. I don't know if I need a specific version of LTIB, so I asked on this forum.
Take a look at this link http://boundarydevices.com/imx6-builds/ . You can also use Yocto to build a complete Linux image (u-boot+uImage+rootfs)
There only seem to be binaries for the kernel and filesystem in this link, not the cross compiler toolchain, which is what I'm interested in. The LTIB installer available on the LTIB site installs a version of gcc that appears to be too old to build recent Linux kernels (rel_imx_3.0.35_1.1.3 from Freescale linux-2.6-imx) ., complaining about "Error: unknown architecture `armv7-a'", and I can't seem to find an option to install a newer toolchain. The toolchain from Yocto's "meta-toolchain" package also fails to build the linux-2.6-imx tree from Freescale, rel_imx_3.0.35_1.1.3 branch, but with a different error: http://pastebin.com/JLqKWZQq
ld version, from "meta-toolchain": GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.22
gcc version, from "meta-toolchain": arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-gcc (GCC) 4.7.2
ld version, from LTIB toolchain: GNU ld version 2.17
gcc version, from LTIB toolchain: arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc (GCC) 4.1.2
as versions from "meta-toolchain" and LTIB are 2.22 and 2.17, respectively.
Thank you, the toolchain provided on this BSP works. The problem with ld I had was unrelated to ld itself, it was solved by the command "unset LDFLAGS".
I'm sorry to unearth this thread, but it happens I am going to need this exact BSP and thus toolchain for a project (don't ask why this one, the client is king...)
But it appears that the link to the BSP (https://community.nxp.com/docs/DOC-94809) is somehow broken.
Could anyone direct me to some archive where I could retrieve it ?
