NOTE: I actually posted this in the IP and Dev Kit forum first but I eventually realized this toolchain is not the standard FPGA dev tool and I might get better visibility over here.I'm using nios2-linux-20100621.tar with my 3C120 Dev Board (ghrd.sof) and my statically compiled application is getting a segfault when I use the atan2 function in the math library from the binary mm toolchain. root:/tmp> ./atan2_test 0 1 y = 0.000000 x = 1.000000 fabs (0.000000 / 1.000000) = 0.000000 atan (0.000000 / 1.000000) = 0.000000 atan (fabs(0.000000 / 1.000000)) = 0.000000 atan2 (0.000000, 1.000000) = 0.000000 root:/tmp> ./atan2_test 1 -1 y = 1.000000 x = -1.000000 fabs (1.000000 / -1.000000) = 1.000000 atan (1.000000 / -1.000000) = -0.785398 atan (fabs(1.000000 / -1.000000)) = 0.785398 SEGV Although the atan function seems to work, it appears that the atan2 function dies trying to call it. To get past this, I've been reading all the threads about the mmu toolchain and it does not appear that anyone has ever successfully recompiled the mmu toolchain. Is this the case? I've seen a few notes that a common toolchain is coming but they were old (2009?). Can anyone help point me to a resource on how to rebuild the mmu toolchain?

See here:http://alterawiki.com/wiki/build_the_gcc4_toolchain I have the build working. There is actually a slightly newer version I found from CodeSourcery that I've been using. At some point I started working on importing it into git, but that got put off.

Hi Gregdowd,the niosftp.com server does not exist anymore. I don't know if it will become available again. But you can use the following ftp site for downloading toolchain and linux distribution: Toolchain: ftp://sopc.et.ntust.edu.tw/pub/gnutools/ (ftp://sopc.et.ntust.edu.tw/pub/) Linux: ftp://sopc.et.ntust.edu.tw/pub/linux/ Urmel
