Cross compiler for Kindle?

Were can we find a cross compiler for Kindle? Any way to run compiled programs in an emulated scenario?

I've read some posts here about compiling and so but finally I have not clear how to do (and I'm a Windows programmer, not a Linux one)...

Any help is welcomed.

You need to install cygwin, then follow the instructions in the "x-compile" file of "kindle-x-tc.tar.gz" from https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88004 .

Thank you!

However I'm in trouble with this. After installing cygwin (and vim to have ex ans subversion), I create a folder called Kindle and lanuch "x-compile" script

First thing I do not understand why scipt does is offering me edit of crosstools-ng-1.9.0.tar.bz2. I simply press q and enter and script continues.

Then script fails to move crosstool-ng-etc because it is in the right folder... and finally it fails to do some patches...

Here is the console output:
Administrator@xpmaster-mars ~/Kindle
$ ./x-compile

Don't try to just run the script, read it to see what it does.

Well, then I have a first question that is not described in the script: What's the meaning of editing crosstool-ng-bla with vi?

Device: some.
It's not a script, It's just his terminal history that you can use as a guide.
Unless you have a user named niluje and are running gentoo, you will need to change the paths and --prefix= in the configure lines, paths to source code in his portage tree etc. It's pretty specific to his system so you will need to adapt it a little.

It's pretty easy to do but if you've never used linux before It might be a little confusing.

/edit
To your original question, that just means to edit it in vi.
vi is a modal text editor, for basic editing you would move around in command mode with hjkl keys, get to where you want to edit push i for insert mode and type.
:wq is write quit. It would be best to find a vi tutorial on the net before using it though.

Valentino, my question is in relation of *why* (and what) I need to edit in crosstool-ng-bla bzipped file, not how to edit? I know vi (very basic), and I have a little (very little) experiencie in Linux.

rfog,

you don't need to edit anything. you do need to understand (roughly) what each statement in NiLuJe's x-compile log does though as you'll have to decide which ones you want to execute.

the relevant ones for getting crosstool-ng to work are:
wget (download it)
ex and mv can be replaced with tar xjf (extract it)
patch command is important! make sure you apply the patch, NiLuJe included it in the same package as the x-compile logfile.

configure: just change the prefix to match your setup.
make and make install.
that's it, crosstools-ng should now be installed.

you may need to do some research first if you don't understand what the commands do --otherwise it's very unlikely you'll be able to even use the cross compiler once you've built it.
