Patched Devpac for 060/AMMX Perhaps?

I am looking to code for the new 060/AMMX core. However, I would prefer compiling/testing on the actual machine.

Therefore, are there any native compilers that work or have patches for the Vampire cores?

I would prefer not to have to cross compile from a Windows machine and with the speed of the Vampire cards, this should be a realistic solution.

Many thanks for any pointers and thankyou to the Apollo team for all the hard work that went into the Vampires!

Forgive my ignorance, but I was under the impression that VASM is a Windows based multi CPU target assembler?

VAsm is cross platform code written in C with source available.  The website has snapshots for Amiga Native binaries.

I must have missed that when browsing through!

Unfortunately, trying to learn the whole Amiga ecosystem as I am, from the ground up, I struggle to absorb the information quickly enough and miss some information.

I see VASM has Devpac code compatability. Perhaps I could try and start crossport work with my Atari TT/Devpac 3.1 whilst I am waiting to assemble a working OS3.9 on the Vampire (just purchased a Sandisk 32Gb CF card, as per Gunnar/Majsta recommendation. I will see how it goes from there).

Thanks for enlightening me guys! ;)
