Yes, I understand the problem. From my perspective i'm looking to have
a cross compiling build system that utilizes ubuntu packages as source
input and creates arch specific debs that can then be combined into a
jffs or other style image ready to be flashed AND have individual debs I
can ftp/sftp to a embedded system and install if I want to -ie. I want
maximum flexibility :-)
I personally need both an ARM cross-compiled solution and x86 style
stuff - both of which I currenly test using QEMU and i'm happy to
contribute where I can to that. I guess I think a solution that is
extendable to other cross compilation targets would be ideal.
I'm not really familiar with the ubuntu (or debian ) build systems - are
there documentation pointers ? I'd be nice to utilize that framework
as much as possible with cross-compilation hooks where appropriate.
Note: I don't expect the resultant arch specific debs to be necessarily
made available publically, but being able to source packages from ubuntu
and use a common build system to *mostly* create a system I want/need is
a very good thing :-)
