The uClibc development systems for i386, powerpc, arm, and
now for the first time, mips, have been updated to uClibc 0.9.19.
Several smaller problems have also been fixed up.

This is an ext2 filesystem that runs natively on the specified
architecture. It contains all the development software you need
to build your own uClibc applications, including bash, coreutils,
findutils, diffutils, patch, sed, ed, flex, bison, file, gawk,
tar, grep gdb, strace, make, gcc, g++, autoconf, automake,
ncurses, zlib, openssl, openssh and more. And of course,
everything is dynamically linked against uClibc.

By using a uClibc only system, you can avoid all the painful
cross-configuration problems that have made using uClibc somewhat
painful in the past. If you want to quickly get started with
testing or using uClibc you should give these images a try.  You
can loop mount and then chroot into them, you can boot into them
using user-mode Linux, you can even 'dd' them to a spare
partition and use resize2fs to make them fill the drive.
Whatever works best for you. 

Have fun,
