Hi,

I have uploaded the  binary version  the gcc-3.0+binutils(2.11.90)  
cross-compiler for NUE. The tarfile is avaiable from:

		ftp://ftp.hpl.hp.com/pub/linux-ia64/nue-gcc3-010625.tar.gz


IMPORTANT:
 	- you must have the latest release of NUE (dated May 2001) installed. 
	  More specifically, you need to have nue-fs-1.2
 
 	- This will REPLACE your default gcc-2.96 with gcc-3.0. 
	  So careful if you want to roll back.
 
INSTALLATION:
-------------
	
	You can install the package two ways:

	1/ From inside NUE

	   - first make sure that the tarfile is available inside NUE

	   - enter NUE

	   - become root inside NUE

	   - cd / 
	
           - tar zxf path_to_tarfile/nue-gcc3-010625.tar.gz

	2/ From outside NUE

	   - become root
	  
	   - cd /nue
	
           - tar zxf path_to_tarfile/nue-gcc3-010625.tar.gz

---------------

	You can easily verify that the install went well:

	- enter NUE

	- type:

	% gcc -v

NOTE to GNU-EFI users:
----------------------

	working EFI binaries without requiring any additional patches. So if
	you are developing EFI applications, it is worth upgrading the compiler
	to 3.0.




Enjoy,
