Subject Re: [PATCH Attachment 28632, Bug 51257] Build failed when cross-compiling: ./gen_test_char: cannot execute binary file
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2012 12:59:03 GMT
Hi Guenter,

I've applied and tried the modified patch
( but it
seems that the BUILD_FOR_CC value isn't propagated to the Makefile in
the server folder.

Did it work for you? If so, what more did you have to do in order to get
it to work?

Kind Regards,
