    gcc compiler for sparc64

    Hi all,
    Here is the case, i am running a minimal version of linux on sparc64 based processor, it doesn't have c compiler and i can't access internet. I can access internet on a different machine. How can i download the whole package of gcc separately ?

    Difficult to believe this is a completely isolated machine.
    It must be connected to some server or network(not necessarily internet). As your lab in-charge and/or sys-admin, find it out and download the gcc package.
    .....yes, I do this for fun!

    hi dpaul,

    I apologize for not explaining the whole case before. I am running that OS on Processor that i synthesized on FPGA and there is Ethernet option on that FPGA so no Internet connectivity.

    Then you can't!
    If you want to run a custom version of bare metal Linux, then compile it somewhere else with your requisites, generate the binary file and then download that to the FPGA.

    There is gcc cross-compiler for sparc64 in Ubuntu Xenial (16.04 LTS) in 'Universe' repository:
