John, welcome to the bleeding edge! I recommend you make sure you can
create at least two rootfses on your disk(s) [ three is probably better,
to give you freedom for excursions into different build-methods ]. Make
them big enough for whatever you plan to install, even if you think it
will be in /usr/local or /opt.
So far, I know that Ryan intends to get into variations on the lib
structure when he has time, and I'm *hoping* to try lib with lib32 after
I've got a working multilib (lib, lib64) build [ I'm stuck with
unsatisfactory 32-bit glibc test results at the moment, wondering what
I'm doing wrong ].
Jim has suggested I look at his patches for pure-64 mips, I guess
that's MULTILIB_DIRNAMES and friends in the gcc-4.0.2-mips_pure64-1
patch. If you don't hack at least gcc, it will default to lib and
I hope your requirements for the applications won't prevent you using
the recent versions we're using in Cross-LFS. Don't forget to monitor
the lfs-dev list if you use Cross-LFS. And however you do it, enjoy the
das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
