I just finished my stage3 Gentoo install on my PS3 and have been slowly installing packages to get it up to par before I emerge X. I've had to use a bunch of different forum posts/handbooks/random sites to get me to where I am which causes a problem since a lot of other sites are extremely out of date and I have to figure out quite a bit on my own.

I'm running a 32bit userland. I've added the PS3 overlay to portage and the package in question would be dev-libs/speutils from the overlay. When I go to emerge it, I am given the error;

Code:
=== configuring in spu (/var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/speutils-0.1/work/speutils-0.1/spu)
configure: running /bin/sh ./configure --disable-option-checking '--prefix=/usr'  '--build=powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu' '--host=powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu' '--mandir=/usr/share/man' '--infodir=/usr/share/info' '--datadir=/usr/share' '--sysconfdir=/etc' '--localstatedir=/var/lib' '--libdir=/usr/lib' 'CFLAGS=-O3 -funroll-loops -pipe' 'build_alias=powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu' 'host_alias=powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu' 'LDFLAGS=-Wl,-O1' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
checking for powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu-spu-elf-gcc... no
checking for spu-elf-gcc... spu-elf-gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: in `/var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/speutils-0.1/work/speutils-0.1/spu':
configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
See `config.log' for more details.
configure: error: ./configure failed for spu


I've installed crossdev (though I plan on keeping everything local for the moment), libspe2 and spu-tools. I am still relatively new to Gentoo (my desktop has been running it since May, but i've been a Fedora guy since 2005) so forgive me if this is something simple. Any ideas?

I am at exactly the same point you were at - have everything working. Including wireless WPA2 using supplicant.

Was going gang-busters and booom!!!

Got the exact same error as you have posted here.

Is there insight from any quarter??

Thanks!

Same issue here, I'd be interested if anyone knows what's going on here.

First, I think you don't need any cell overlays, everything is in portage already. Second, most likely you are missing '/spu' directory and "none /spu spufs defaults 0 0" line in /etc/fstab. That's why SPU binaries fail to run.

AFAIK this is the most up to date information about gentoo on PS3: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Sony_Playstation_3

Good luck.
