Hi All,

I now have a V171 phone and cable so I thought I might get started with

I checked out the code and started make. Osmocon built with no problem, but
I got this error next:

cd shared/libosmocore/build-target && ../configure \
                        --host=arm-elf-linux --disable-vty

                        --disable-shared --disable-talloc --disable-tests \
                CC="arm-elf-gcc" CFLAGS="-Os -ffunction-sections

See `config.log' for more details

Checking config.log I can see it chokes here:

/usr/bin/arm-elf-ld: this linker was not configured to use sysroots
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I am running Arch Linux and have the packages cross-arm-elf-binutils
and cross-arm-elf-gcc-base installed. Does anyone have any suggestions to
fix this?
