Introduction

A toolchain is a set of tools that allows you to compile code. For OpenMoko, we have to differenciate the following use-cases:

  • Developing a single application

For this, you should use a prebuilt toolchain from the OpenMoko project. Here you can find a recipe to get started with this toolchain leading you through a series of steps to compile a project and run it on your target device.

  • System Integration and customizing a distribution

For this task, you should use OpenEmbedded which builds its own cross compiler during the bootstrapping/build process. System Integration and customizing a distribution is out of scope of this page.

The prebuilt toolchain can be downloaded from [downloads.openmoko.org].
