Thread: Build an i386 kernel on an amd64 machine

  1. Build an i386 kernel on an amd64 machine

    I've got an old computer that I'd like to use as a small office router.

    I'd like to compile my own kernel (network modules compiled in, and what
    not.) and I've done this plenty of time in Slackware but with the same
    arch of gcc as the target platform.

    I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 on the amd64 machine. What do I need to "apt-get"
    to get a x86 version of gcc and glibs to build an i386 kernel from source.
    Also, what parameters do I need to pass (if any) to the make command.

    Thanks!
