Cross compiling for MS-DOS from PowerPC OS X

So since I’m still plugging away on my G5 Power Mac, I was going to do some MS-DOS work, so with Qemu built, I thought I’d go ahead and build the PowerPC equivalent of what I had done earlier

So if anyone cares…

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

  1. With exotic software like this cross-compiler, you never know when you will have to use it.
    Maybe someone in the future will have to build something for DOS/x86 from the oldest computer (a ppc g5) still working in his firm …

    So, I thank you for the unknown future users that will not be able to comment here 🙂

    • Yeah I know it is borderline useless, but I wanted to have a real mac, and this quad g5 was super cheap.. and its a hell of a lot easier to build cross compilers on a UNIX machine, that is for sure!
