Currently I have the old and new versions of the MBWE, the newest is still in the box as I'm trying to work out what I want where between the two devices as its shared between myself and my son.
Now with the old MBWE I re-installed the compiler from an earlier version which seemed to all work ok.
What would be the implications of installing this (the old version GCC/Uclibc) on to the new MBWE?
If the above isn't a valid solution then how would one go about getting a compiler up and running for the new version?
Would it be better to (a) try and get the compiler set up on the MBWE or on (b) a PC running say ubunto and compiling the output for the MBWE and then just copying the binaries accross?
Now concidering that my knowledge of *nix is very limited both a and b are really going to tax me, but I have a feeling a is going to be less taxing as i'm not going to have to set up an environment (make sure that my PC mimics the MBWE libraries) as it already exists on the MBWE assuming that headers etc are present.
I should state that I do have a development background on IBM AS/400's which is a unix (OS/400) like command line "green screen" system, a bit of C#, delphi, etc.
I'm also guessing that unless i create something that overwrites an existing MBWE program (especially OS level) then I should be fairly unlikely to brick the device.
Any help greatly appreciated.
