Usage of the --sysroot=dir option tells the compiler to look in dir/usr/include for the standard header files instead of the standard system location /usr/include - this is typically used in cross-compilation scenarios - is that what you are trying to do? if so you will likely need the appropriate SDK (target system header files and libraries) for the MIPSEE target installed into your ~/Desktop/MIPSEE/Programme/ directory. – steeldriver Nov 1 '13 at 12:37
@steeldriver - thanks – MihaiC Nov 4 '13 at 7:53
