Cross-compiling Nginx for ARM?

April 12, 2013 09:33AM
Hello,

I'd like to run Nginx on the SheevaPlug (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SheevaPlug), which is based on Marvell's Kirkwood 88F6281 (ARM9E/ARMv5TE).

I have a couple of newbie questions:

1. The archives of the mailing list (http://forum.nginx.org/read.php?2,227934,228360#msg-228360) include a reference to those ports based on older versions:

http://packages.debian.org/search?arch=arm&keywords=nginx
Based on 1.2.1-2.2

http://nginx.org/packages/debian/pool/nginx/n/nginx/
Based on 1.2.8-1

Currently (www.nginx.org/en/CHANGES), the latest Nginx source is 1.3.15. Why are those ports based on older code? Because it's not just a matter of recompiling, but it also requires making changes to the source code so Nginx can run on ARM?

2. I tried cross-compiling Nginx on a PC running Ubuntu with Marvell's cross-compiler (www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/plug-basic/), but it fails right from the start:

====================
~/nginx-1.2.6# ./configure --with-cc=/root/LinuxHost/gcc/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/gcc

checking for OS
+ Linux 3.5.0-17-generic i686
checking for C compiler ... not found

./configure: error: C compiler /root/LinuxHost/gcc/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/gcc is not found

~/nginx-1.2.6# ll /root/LinuxHost/gcc/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/gcc
-rwxr-xr-x 1 fred fred 180000 Feb 26 2008 /root/LinuxHost/gcc/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/bin/gcc*
====================

How should I set things up so that I can try cross-compiling Nginx?

Thanks for any help.
