I have installed Haiku on a Dell, downloaded the buildtools and haiku repos and have tried to follow these instructions:
I get an error when running this command (from the page above):
./configure --cross-tools-source …/buildtools --build-cross-tools x86_64
The script runs for a long while, and then here is the final error:
cp /boot/home/Projects/Haiku/buildtools/gcc/gcc/gcc-ar.c gcc-nm.c
make: cp: Is a directory
make: *** [Makefile:2166: gcc-nm.c] Error 127
make: Leaving directory ‘/boot/home/Projects/Haiku/haiku/generated/cross-tools-x86_64-build/gcc/gcc’
make: *** [Makefile:4274: all-gcc] Error 2
make: Leaving directory ‘/boot/home/Projects/Haiku/haiku/generated/cross-tools-x86_64-build/gcc’
make: *** [Makefile:908: all] Error 2
ERROR: Building gcc failed.
It would be great if someone can confirm that a fresh install of Haiku, and then following these instructions will result in a successful build. It is difficult to get started when these early steps fail before one really even gets into the project. My goal was to get past the building of Haiku so that I could then explore and experiment.
