Description of problem:

A really nice suite of Ti Calculator tools should be added to Fedora. (IMHO) 

I know this isn't directly a gcc related issue, but I couldn't figure out 
where else to put it. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


All latest versions from their respective websites. 

Additional info:

Texas Instruments makes a calculator called the TI 89 that uses a 68000 for 
the processor.  A TI89 has the same processor and more memory than the 
original Mac 128 ! 

A group of people have developed a gcc compiler (special version of the gcc 
68000 version) , an IDE, a "linking program" and an emulator for the 
calculator.  This group of tools allows users to write asm or C code on a PC 
and ultimately run it on the calculator.  

I think this is an outstanding achievement and the tools are worthwhile to 
consider including in the next Fedora extras.

The tools are not 100% perfect.  They could use a bit of polish here and 
there, but they are certainly functional.

The respective starting websites are:


The team advocates using KTIGCC for the IDE, which is linked to from the TIGCC

You should either add it to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/WishList
or better yet contribute those packages
or find somebody to do it.  This is really a wrong place to submit such a

I am planning to submit these, but my current packages need some cleanups. See 
http://repo.calcforge.org/ for now. In any case, the Fedora GCC maintainer is 
the wrong person to bug with this. ;-)
