Default nios2 gnu sources broken for amd64 linux

Hello

Does somebody know who is responsible for the GNU sources
of the NIOS2 toolchain?

Since nothing was ever put back into mainstream gcc/binutils
like uClinux support I assume it is Microtronix?


thx
rick

Rick,

Altera maintains the GNU toolchain for Nios II. As for uClinux, I am
quite ignorant on the matter (I am not sure if any toolchain changes
were required). You might ask in the uClinux area of www.niosforum.com.

Altera *usually* has all these toolchain sources available on public
FTP - I noticed your mentioning that they were removed in a separate
post so I had a look and it appears that I cannot locate them either
(the sources for all prior versions were up there as of a couple of
months ago when I last checked). I am assuming this is an oversight and
will follow-up to see what happened.

Actually I have started checking out current microtronix uclinux
and official uclinux distribution to do a merger into official
tree since Microtronix uClinux only allows building on Windows.

The last version I saw was called gnupro-3.2...those were only
toolchain sources for nios32 as I remember and were based on
gcc-2.95.x/binutils-2.10 or lower...

If Altera agrees I could mirror the NIOS2 sources along with MacOSX
binaries under uclinux.net (o;
