I've taken the gcc-6.3 sources from there, and updated them to gcc-6.4.0
in order to build a nds32le-linux toolchain based on the same version as
the other ones.

Unfortunately neither the usual binutils-2.29.1 nor your binutils worked
for me, but I eventually managed to get a build using the binutils-2.30

With this, I could build a mainline kernel with a couple of warnings,
but an 'allmodconfig' build still failed.

Guenter, can you try my binary from

If that works for you, I'll update the front-page and remove the nds32-elf

Greentime, do you have a patch set for gcc-7.3 as well, or are 6.3 and 8.0 the
only working compilers for nds32le-linux?
