Hi I'm a bit of a newbie with this stuff, so I'm not 100% sure where to post this. Anyway I have a mini arm based PC for which I am trying to compile a php binary in cgi-mode, which supports sqlite. I am trying to cross compile from a Ubuntu PC. My code is as follows (from the unzipped PHP directory): $ export CC=/usr/local/arm/3.4.1/bin/arm-linux-gcc $ export CXX=/usr/local/arm/3.4.1/bin/arm-linux-cpp $ ./configure --host=i386-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr/home/ben/Desktop/php_bin --enable-ftp --target=arm --without-pear --disable-simplexml --disable-mbregex --enable-sockets --enable-pdo --with-pdo-sqlite --with-sqlite3 --disable-all $ make $ make install It runs through the ./configure fine until the make command, where it falls over with the following error: .....Zend/zend_objects_API.lo Zend/zend_default_classes.lo Zend/zend_execute.lo sapi/cgi/cgi_main.lo sapi/cgi/fastcgi.lo main/internal_functions.lo -lcrypt -lcrypt -lrt -lm -lcrypt -lcrypt -o sapi/cgi/php-cgi ext/date/lib/parse_date.o: could not read symbols: Input/output error collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [sapi/cgi/php-cgi] Error 1 I went into to php-5.3.2/ext/date/lib and sure enough the parse_date.o file hangs the OS when I try and open it. I re-downloaded the php 5.3.2 tarball, (thinking it could be a corrupt download) and php-5.3.2/ext/date/lib/parse_date.o doesn't exist, and I get the same error anyway. I've been researching online a bit and .o files are made during installations.... If anyone can see what I'm doing wrong I'd be eternally grateful!
