Has anyone gcc running on the new MyBook (white light)? I'm not sure if I can use the gcc-recovery-method, because I think it's for the old mybooks.
I've exactly the same problem, don't know how to install it :(
For NAS device like MBWE, in order to have a native toolchain, you first need a cross compilation toolchain.
We found that codesourcery 2005q1 cross compilation toolchain is a matching one for MBWE white light. Unfortunately, cs05q1armel cross toolchain has problem compiling the native toolchain (internal compiler error).
For some one adventurous and determined, there might be two things worth exploring:
1) Get the source of 2005q1 and 2005q3 toolchain, try to build a new cross compilation toolchain combining binutils and gcc from 2005q3, with glibc from 2005q1
2) Or, use crosstool-ng to build a brand new cross toolchain, with matching glibc version and llatest 3.4 gcc.
Then look at http://trac.nslu2-linux.org/optware/browser/trunk/make/gcc.mk and try build a native gcc. This can take quite some effort.
