    I apologize if this is the wrong forum. The developers forum look to be for more end-user app development.

    I am wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for an ARM toolchain for linux. I have tried a few so far and have not managed to produce a working arm binary.

    Thanks

    I can kind of answer this, but it raises a few questions.

    Do a search in google for "Let's Talk about google android". By adding a folder to $(YOUR_ANDROID)/external called 'hello' and adding the Hello.c code, then creating a android.mk file, I was able to create a hello binary.

    Now for the questions:

    Do the devs here use the Android Build system or toolchain?
    Is it better to use Code Sourcery or possibly emdebian?
