Jens Langner has released a GCC cross-compiler environment and binaries for compiling/porting existing applications to Amithlon (x86).

x86-ami-gcc
Description from the readme: This archive contains a uptodate version of a AmigaOS (68k)hosted gcc cross compiler environment for compiling/porting existing applications to Amithlon (x86).

Download (3.8 MB) Readme

x86-ami-bin
Description from the readme: This archive contains the binutils 2.9.1 version of the AmigaOS (68k) hosted binutils for compiling/porting existing applications to Amithlon (x86).

Download (2.9 MB) Readme

The x86-ami-bin.lha archive is required to successfully use the cross-compiler.

This release removes the need for a Linux installation for anyone wanting to develop Amithlon enhanced code.

Yes this is GREAT! Way to go!!!!!!!! Now we suddenly have an alternative to BeOS; let Amithlon be an emulator or not!!

Great to see a proper Amithlon compiler finally available.
Just wish I had time to tinker these days. :(

Well, in time that may change. Isn't some parts of the OS already x86 native? Perhaps it's possible to use code from Aros to further write x86 native but still compatible OS components?
Aros is also an exciting project although it doesn´t have the same abilities to emulate old 680x0 apps. On the other hand, that makes Aros free from some old legacies.

I'll try a SDL recompile with this gcc in this weekend, I will not able to test it since I don't own amithlon but I'm sure someone will do it :)
I hope there are not too much problems with system headers, the
"#pragma pack(2)" before every amiga structure used isn't very promising, why do you not use strict align by default or, like the win32 gcc, with a compiler flag that acts globally (-fstrict-align)?

Oh, I'm sure "someone" will. ;)

Might I suggest you ask Jens directly? His home page is at:
<http://www.htw-dresden.de/~htw10895/>
where you should find his e-mail address. I'm simply not in a position to answer that for you. :)

does this means that every programmer out there can easy make x86 binaries
of their programs/source ?
like compiling Aweb or Ibrowse ....or maybe Frogger,Yam,Simplemail,Uae,
mpega.library+++
Where the heck is Amithlon 2 ? :)

As long as it compiles with GCC. There will probably be some stuff that doesn't work, must most should. Again, it's worth reading the Readme files for current caveats.

Some of those programs don't compile with GCC for various reasons (AWeb being a case in point - conversion of the source to GCC is one of the current aims), so they can't just be recompiled.
OTOH other programs can be recompiled without changing anything. It ought to be possible to recompile the entire GeekGadgets suite, for instance, as well as more Amiga-native stuff.

Held up by licensing issues. One of the third pary contributors has decided to withold granting their license at the 11th hour, pending "further clarification" of H&P's licensing of Kickstart, or lack thereof. Could be sorted in a week, or it might take a year. :(
Hopefully there will be some official clarification soon.

In reply to Comment 8 (Bill Hoggett):
This is hardly exciting. The GCC port to 68k must be a pile of junk. I mean go download gccfaq.lha and then just *try* to read the guide in multiview. I stopped downloading gcc when i found the author(s?) dident even know how to write a .guide properly! How crappy must the compiler itself be!? Yeah real good morons, full compiler but just the docs arent readable eh? Does it even compile 'hello world'?! Bah, i wouldnt even waste the HD space on such poorly designed crap. :)
GRUNT

Well, the MorphOS version source should be able to be compiled, it has already
been converted.

In reply to Comment 11 (Alkis Tsapanidis):
No,it's been converted to be used with gcc AND MOS. It's not compilable as-is for Amithlon.

In reply to Comment 13 (Fabio Alemagna):
Well, it SHOULD be easier to make that work with Amithlon, than to convert the
sources to GCC+AmigaOS 68k and THEN port it over to Amithlon.

AmiTroll, that is the most uninformed, blatantly worthless nonsense to have ever been squeezed out through two cheecks into a vapourus cloud ever on this board.
Surely you jest.

Hi, has anyone got this cross-compiler working?
I am having problems with the system includes
and library headers etc. How can I generate
Amithlon compatible versions? I read about
a tool to do this but it is not included in
these packages? Anyway this looks good and
should open the possibilities for some
pretty amazing software that takes advantage
