I installed the following toolchain with crossdev:
which installs glibc into /usr/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi/ under the
I then installed udev, which depends on sys-fs/glibc
As far as I know sys-fs/glibc is already installed into SYSROOT, except
with a different name as mentioned above.
I noted that the two installs of glibc had the same version, so I went
ahead with the installation anyway. Sure enough portage reported a bunch
of file collisions.
I'm guessing that the solution is to move SYSROOT into another
directory. I think I've seen how to do this in some documentation, but I
can't find it anymore. Would setting SYSROOT to another directory
separate the two glibc installs? I was also wondering if it was possible
to ask portage to install packages and build filesystem in directories
owned by users. The advantage of which is to let users create their own
filesystems in more a of a sandbox environment.
