Description Jorge Manuel B. S. Vicetto Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2012-10-17 22:36:12 UTC
Please add X32 support for skimmer's kernel so that we can build x32 stages on it.
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-10-18 04:48:34 UTC
just have to enable CONFIG_X86_X32=y:

Executable file formats / Emulations  --->
[*] IA32 Emulation
[*]   x32 ABI for 64-bit mode
Comment 2 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2012-10-31 20:42:10 UTC
Missing step:
Install binutils-2.22 on the build host first.
If you build w/ X32 and an older binutils, it disables x32 support.

Done

yes, you need an up-to-date stable system first.  but that's generally assumed (or at least should be) for infra boxes ...
