[U-Boot-Users] Newbie question - cross

(My apologies if this email comes through twice...Outlook didn't seem to do
anything useful with it the first time I sent it.)

Is there an easy way to update the PPC binutils in ELDK 3.0?  Is there an
estimated time of arrival for ELDK 3.1?

For thoroughness, I'd like to test a patch on an 85xx board, but don't see a
good way to do that yet.

...whichis identical to the tools used in ELDK 3.0 (which actually is
based on YD-3.0).

Yes. You need binutils 2.14 or later.

See "doc/README.mpc85xxads".

Like ELDK 3.1 :-)
