I tested fairly extensively with Ubuntu 10.04 Beta 2 Server in a VM, and was able to simply copy (read tar x) a cross compiled tool chain from an Ubuntu 8.10 VM. I created the tar myself, which is essentially a lot of stuff in \usr\local.

Now that I've got a bare metal installation of Ubuntu 10.04 proper, the copy isn't working. In particularly, I'm getting the error:

$ arm-linux-gcc
-bash: /usr/local/bin/arm-linux-gcc: No such file or directory

I've got the systems side by side in SSH windows ... any suggestions?

The file /usr/local/bin/arm-linux-gcc exists ? Is it the same plateform than your old (32bits/64bits) ?

err, yes it does exist. How would explain the verbosity of the error? And no it's not the same platform, as stated, the first two were VM's and the final was a bare metal install. The confusing bit was the one VM was 32 and the other was 64. – Jamie May 27 '10 at 20:36
The message is not really clear, but it happens when your software is in 32 bits on a 64 bits machine without 32bits libraries installed, as you find in the other post. – Dom May 27 '10 at 20:42

Ubuntu Beta shipped with 32 bit libraries installed, so this fixed it:

 sudo apt-get install linux32 ia32*

Which may have been overkill, but it got the job done.
