|I have a couple of fairly new macs and I would like to use them to help compiling gentoo on our 'inferior' i686 machines. So I started follwoing the instructions to build a cross compiler.
I got stuck after doing these steps:
- adding cross-i686-pc-linux-gnu to /etc/portage/profile/categories
- setting up PORTDIR_OVERLAY and making links to the directories of the 4 relevant ebuilds (binutils, gcc, linux26-headers, glibc) in /usr/local/portage/cross-i686-pc-linux-gnu/
- none of these packages have ~ppc-macos keywords
-> allowed portage to use the ~ppc ebuilds in /etc/portage/package.keywords
binutils compiled without errors:
|$ emerge cross-i686-pc-linux-gnu/binutils |
tried emerging gcc with USE=nocxx but it needed glibc so I skipped this for later
Here I got stuck:
|$ ARCH=i686 emerge cross-i686-pc-linux-gnu/linux26-headers |
this resulted in:
Makefile:431: /private/var/tmp/portage/linux26-headers-188.8.131.52-r2/work/linux-184.108.40.206/arch/i686/Makefile: No such file or directory
So I tried the stable ppc version of linux26-headers but surprise: blocked by sys-libs/libsystem!Is this even worth trying?
