Hi, I am a HP Jornada 680 user. This is a sh3-based handheld running linux from the jlime project (http://jlime.com). All the development and packaging is currenly done using OpenEmbedded, but I'm not satisfied with the process of crosscompiling something using it. So, I came up to an idea to port Arch to this handheld, as I have working kernel it shouldn't be a hard task. Then I need a cross-development environment to compile some stuff. How should I do it? Was there any work done on making an Arch-based crossbuild environment?
You may have some luck with the pkgbuilds of these toolchains  using distcc on your handheld. In case you don't have a sufficiently big storage device built in, I recommend to run NFS over usb-net. I have been working on SH4 (dreamcast) for a while but with no bog results. Simply using the debian disc available doing the above mentioned thing using the broadband adaptor.
If you simply want to build a working system, I'd recommend buildroot .
Thanks, but can't I do all the things directly on my host machine, as OE does?
