Welcome to uClibc-ng - Embedded C library

What is it?

uClibc-ng is a small C library for developing embedded Linux systems. It is much smaller than the GNU C Library, but nearly all applications supported by glibc also work perfectly with uClibc-ng.

Porting applications from glibc to uClibc-ng typically involves just recompiling the source code. uClibc-ng supports shared libraries and threading. It currently runs on standard Linux and MMU-less (also known as uClinux) systems with support for Alpha, ARC, ARM, AVR32, Blackfin, CRIS, FR-V, H8/300, HPPA, i386, IA64, LM32, M68K/Coldfire, Metag, Microblaze, MIPS, MIPS64, NDS32, NIOS2, OpenRISC, PowerPC, Sparc, SuperH, X86_64 and XTENSA processors. Alpha, FR-V, HPPA, IA64, LM32 and NIOS2 are experimental and need more testing.

Beginning with 1.0.20, the test suite is split off into its own project uClibc-ng-test.

History

uClibc-ng is a spin-off of uClibc (from Erik Andersen) from http://www.uclibc.org. Our main goal is to provide regulary a stable and tested release to make embedded system developers happy.
