OK Let's assume I have the Gentoo i386 package installed on my hard-drive.
Now I want to run my C-Code on an ARM processor using the Serial RS-232 port.
Does Gentoo support this? because I've known PCQ Linux 2k4 and Red Hat to support this...

ronscores,

Yes - you can use Gentoo to cross compile for an ARM target CPU.
There is a tool
Code:
emerge crossdev
that will try to build you a cross compiler tool chain.
I believer it has ARM support now.

If I understand you correctly, this is not a Gentoo issue but a gcc issue.

You're compiling your own personal code, so if gcc has support for the processor you are targeting and the needed libraries, if needed, are available on the ARM based machine, should be no issue.

Can you be more specific to what your ARM machine is? (Zaurus, etc)

Moved from Other Things Gentoo to Gentoo on Alternative Architectures. There is sure to be more knowledge about ARM in here.
