This is largely out-of-date. These packages are now in Debian/unstable, and I shut down the server described here in favor of the packages in the main archive.

For a while, getting a cross-compiler on Debian was much more complicated than simply running an apt-get install. The current situation is that cross-compilers are mostly ready-to-build, but for uninteresting reasons, packages are still not available in the main Debian repository. I am now building these packages every week, and hosting them on my APT server:

I attempt to build compilers targeting

  • armel
  • armhf
  • mips
  • mipsel
  • powerpc

Compilers for the following languages are built:

  • C
  • C++
  • Fortran
  • Java
  • Go
  • Objective C
  • Objective C++

Hopefully we'll get cross-compilers into Debian proper at some point, so that using my unofficial repo becomes unnecessary
