Cross Compiling for ARM

The ARM core on the DE-10 Nano is an ARM Cortex-A9 dual core You can grab a cross compiler for compiling ARM binaries on a 64bit intel based desktop system - eg OSX, Linux, or Windows (in the Linux subsystem)

Using a cross compiler

wget -c

Unpack somewhere useful, eg /opt

tar xf gcc-linaro-6.5.0-2018.12-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz

and add to your path.

export CC='/opt/gcc-linaro-6.5.0-2018.12-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc'

then follow up with the usual make..

Using Docker

Docker has a arm7 cross compiler which is easy to install on Mac or Linux (assuming you have docker installed already!)

docker run --rm dockcross/linux-armv7 > /usr/local/sbin/dockcross-linux-armv7

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/dockcross-linux-arm7

You can then cross-compile with

/usr/local/bin/dockcross-linux-arm7 make ./MakeFile

or (to compile a fictitious hello.c -> hello.arm)

/usr/local/bin/dockcross-linux-arm7 bash -c '$CC hello.c -o hello.arm'
