GCC 7.3.0 for m68k / m68020-60 / m5475 (ColdFire)

Postby mikro » Tue Sep 25, 2018 9:29 am

GCC 7.3.0 for the FreeMiNT target has been just released: https://github.com/freemint/m68k-atari- ... 7_3_0-mint

The main difference against GGN's GCC (currently in version 8.2) is that this toolchain provides the more traditional patchset, i.e. producing a.out binaries compatible with TOS executables, doesn't require any special flags or pre-/post-processing. And hey, works natively on the FireBee!

On the other hand it is, well, an a.out target so it doesn't produce so finely tuned link time optimisations.

Hold on with celebrations, Thorsten has found a bug in m68020/m5475 versions. Investigating... :-/

And just for those who are not reading the mailing list: cross-compilers for gcc 7.3.1 and 8.2 are available since quite some time on http://tho-otto.de/crossmint.php, together with some commonly used packages, for linux, win32 and macOS.

Mikro's versions are native compilers, usable on mint.

Native compilers are what I need/use :)

All good, the archives now contain properly configured and built compilers for all three platforms. Same URL as in the first post.

Thanks mikro and anyone else involved. I too use the native GCC, on my FireBee. So this is really welcomed news.

It should be noted that you may still run into some problems with newer gcc: the previous toolchain (gcc 4.6.4 in most cases) compiled in c99 mode by default. gcc 7.x uses c11, and gcc 8.x c17. While this might be even required to be able to compile some newer packages, the mintlib currently does not completely support this, so you may encounter some missing functions here and there.
