Re: [ttylinux:362] i486 build with gcc


The reason for my interest is that I have a couple of VIA boards I am planning to make use of to build a monitoring system (environmental, UPS, basic system health).  I built & tried the 686 CD first but the CPU does not have some of the extensions required.

I understand that the 486 version is a low priority.  If there is anything I can do to help, let me have a pointer in what you consider to be a good direction.

Yes, that is part of it.  If you and added binutils to
the config you saw something like:

binutils-2.23 ......... g.b.f.m__19.XXc ... DONE [ 2 minutes 23 seconds]

Notice the XX in that. There needs to be a "files-pc_i486" file in
pkg-cfg/binutils-2.23/ and pkg-cfg/gcc-4.6.3/

Are you really interested in i486? I'll try to get it going in the
next couple hours and post it to github (with the rest of the virtio

This will be some other config file in config/platform-pc_i486/, maybe
something like pc_i486_gccconfig.
