How to install arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc on Archlinux (GCC compiler for arm)

If you want to compile arm kernel : android or etc, you need to install GCC compiler for arm. arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc. The package available on AUR. I prefered using non yaourt methods, because it will bandwith friendly.


Okay here's step by step

Install needed packages:
#pacman -S curl elfutils libmpc

Then Install these packages, must be sequentially (using manual AUR installation)

1. arm-linux-gnueabi-linux-api-headers
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56961
2. arm-linux-gnueabi-binutils
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56960
3. arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc-stage1
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56962
at this stage you will get gcc-x.x.x.tar.bz the size is about 80mb, copy/save this file.

4. arm-linux-gnueabi-eglibc-headers
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56963

5. arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc-stage2
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56964
before doing makepkg, copy saved files (on step 3), then doing makepkg, installation will replalce stage 1

7. arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc (final)
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56966
again same as step 5, copy saved files (on step 3) before makepkg, this installation will replace stage 2.


That's it, now you can compile arm kernel on archlinux. Enjoy.
