I have an Intel Core2 E6600 CPU [CPU_Family=6, Model=15]. The datasheet for this shows that it supports 64bit instructions.

I used the amd64 minimal boot iso to boot my machine and followed the amd64 handbook.

My /etc/portage/make.conf is as follows
Code:

CFLAGS="-O2 -march=core2"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
MAKEOPTS="-j3"

#Devices
ALSA_CARDS="intel8x0"
VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"

CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"

USE="-gnome -kde -minimal -qt4 gtk dbus alsa jpeg lock session startup-notification thunar X cdr hal xfce bindist mmx sse sse2"

GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/gentoo"

SYNC="rsync://rsync.us.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"


I installed genkernel with "emerge genkernel" -> Success.

Now when I try to create the initramfs binary using "genkernel --install initramfs", compilation fails when linking the busybox applets/applets.o. From my understanding it appears a 32 bit applets.o is generated, but being linked with 64 bit object files, resulting in a failure (I could be wrong though).

Here is the output

Code:

POSIX math support (SH_MATH_SUPPORT) [Y/n/?] y
  Extend POSIX math support to 64 bit (SH_MATH_SUPPORT_64) [Y/n/?] y

* ERROR: Failed to compile the "all" target...


The full log from /var/log/genkernel.log is really large, so I'm just posting the part with the error. I can post the full log if necessary.

Note: Initially I had set "-march=native" in my /etc/portage/make.conf. When I saw the same failure with genkernel, I changed it to "-march=core2", thinking that native was wrongly picking up x86 instead of x86_64. But "-march=core2" causes the same failure as well.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Code:
eselect profile list
emerge --info


Also in your kernel Config, did you enable SMP and 64-bit kernel?

Yes, I enabled SMP support and 64 bit kernel in the kernel configuration.

My config has
Code:

CONFIG_64BIT=y
CONFIG_X86_64=y
CONFIG_X86=y
CONFIG_OUTPUT_FORMAT="elf64-x86-64"
...

It was my fault. I was using the wrong stage file. Thanks eyoung100 for taking a look, apologies though.

Footnote: you can use pastebin for long logs. You copy the log to
a pastebin form, a pastebin site stores it temporarily, and
reports the URL to it. You post that URL in the forum instead
of the log itself, and anyone interested can see the log.
Problems are usually solved before the pastebin site expires
that URL.

I have had no problems with this site:
http://pastebin.ca/

There are several others on the www.
