Great, good news! Is anybody working on a BSP for the ec555-light board
by Wuerz-Electronics? That's the module I use (I think it's the smallest
mpc555 you can get), and I'll need a BSP for it. I probably can modify
one of the other 555-BSPs.

About the PowerPC-crosscompiler with Ada (my earlier mail):

Thank you, Ralf, for your help. I tried the 4.6 rpms from the link you
sent me, and they worked fine. Now I have to find/create/modify a BSP
for my board, and hopefully everything will be fine then.

Well, yes, the download helper came up with rpms, but unfortunately all
the links to rpms it came up with were broken:

I tried to find rpms on the ftp server, but couldn't find them myself,
so I decided to try to build it from scratch (should've looked harder, I
Maybe the download helper should be fixed, to avoid this in the future.

Thanks a lot again for your help, and your detailed description of the
current gnat-crosscompiler situation.
