I need to compile a Kernel Angstrom and then install it on a Beagleboard. So I must install a compiler arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-gcc and make a makefile to compile the kernel.

But when I try it the terminal give me an error message: "make: arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-gcc: command not found".

arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-gcc is in a Dyrectory that i know. How can I say to makefile where is the command arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-gcc? Must I put it in a particular directory?

Thankyou for help

P.S.: Sorry for my terrible English

    What is the command you're typing before you get the error message?
    Is arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-gcc in a folder (directory) that is in your default path, or, is it sitting in a folder in your /home folder? If it's not in your default path, that could be the reason for the error. Although you haven't shown us the original command that you used, so, we don't know if the command itself is the cause of the error.

    I was using a wrong path. It was the problem.
