Host Requirements

Linaro officially supports the current and previous Ubuntu LTS releases (as of the time of this release). This does not mean that the toolchain will not work on other/older Linux distributions. See the following for the life-time of Ubuntu LTS releases.

The host system upon which the cross-compiler will run requires a minimum of glibc 2.14, because of API changes to glibc’s memcpy API.

NEWS for Linaro GCC 6.2-2016.11-rc2

  • Host binaries for x86_64 linux hosts now have symbols and debug information stripped in order to reduce the size of the toolchain binary archives. This reduces the archive size from 1.5G to 600M for aarch64-linux-gnu target with the gcc-6-branch.
