We get a number of questions these days on porting from x86 systems to Linux on Power, in particular around Little Endian. IT turns out there are a number of things to consider, let's make a list of things to be aware of
The IBM SDK (Eclipse based) tool for PowerLinux provides a very cool set of tools for analyzing source code and finding these issues.
Out on Youtube, there are a number of videos for using the IBM SDK. Browse and review as your interest drives you.
On IBM's DeveloperWorks, there's a quick video available of a demo of the Migration Advisor.
On IBM's InfoCenter, there's a good guide which describes using the IBM SDK, with a specific chapter on the Migration Advisor
For a feel of what's available in the Code Analysis section.. and a sample assessment of a common x86 application.. see the following images.
We highly recommend downloading the IBM SDK and start playing! htt
