I need to prepare development environment for AVR8 and RaspberryPi. I have installed AVR toolchain from http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/CrossToolchain:/avr/. Where to get cross-compiler for RaspberryPi? I have used armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi via crossdev under Gentoo, what is analogue for one under openSUSE?

P.S. This repository contains some crosscompiler stuff related ARMv5 and ARMv7, others seems to be devoted to running openSUSE under ARM itself.

P.P.S. Is this a good way to install RPi cross-compiler under openSUSE?

crosstool-ng (from your P.P.S link) can create a cross compiler that works with the pi. I think the instructions in that particular blog are a little thin tho. If you do go that root, there are no distro specific differences, btw. – goldilocks Aug 11 '13 at 8:12

You don't have to setup your crosscompiler on your on. There are already crosscompiler for the Raspi available. There are three compilers available here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools and a good tutorial to start with here: http://hertaville.com/2012/09/28/development-environment-raspberry-pi-cross-compiler/

btw. the tutorial is written for (k)ubuntu but you can also use it for opensuse. You can download the git-repo (there is a button with a cloud and 'zip' written on it) from the website, 'install' and link it somewhere in the system.
