I tried to cross compile ffmpeg for raspberry as described in this wiki. ct-ng build failed:
[ERROR] Missing: 'i686-pc-linux-gnu-g++' or 'i686-pc-linux-gnu-g++' or 'g++' : either needed!
In menuconfig one step earlier there where printed some hints (eg binutils 2.21.1a or the "Show Linaro versions" option) that are newer than mine or completely missing in my configuration. I loaded crosstool-ng 1.9.3 from That's the latest in the dl directory. I work under Xubuntu 13.04. Am I missing something?
