    Hi all,

    Iam new to linux and gnu tools. i have downloaded linaro gnu tools
    to install cortex-a8 on my ubuntu machine. iam able to successfully
    install gcc tools. But when i try to install arm tools it is
    throwing error. following are the commands used to install gnu tools
    and the error it is generated

    mckala at mckala:~/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir$
    --target=arm-*-elf --disable-bootstrap --enable-languages=c,c++
    --with-mode=thumb --with-arch=armv7-a --with-tune=cortex-a8
    --with-fpu=neon --with-float=softfp
    --prefix=/home/mckala/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir --disable-werror

    mckala at mckala:~/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir$ make all-host

    mckala at mckala:~/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir$ make install-host

    with this gnu tools installation is completed and i did not get any
    error. when i used the following command to install cross compiler,
    it is giving error

    mckala at mckala:~/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir$ make

    The error is

    checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: in
    configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot
    compile See|config.log' for more details. make[1]: ***
    [configure-target-libgcc] Error 1

    config.log file is showing the following error.

    -B/home/mckala/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir/arm-/-elf/lib/ -isystem
    /home/mckala/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir/arm-/-elf/include -isystem
    /home/mckala/Desktop/gstreamer/gcc_objdir/arm-/-elf/sys-include -V >&5

    xgcc: fatal error: no input files compilation terminated.

    Can any one please help on this.

    Thanks in advance.
