6 If you can compile when chrooting from 2.95.3 to the 3.2.1 system, but not
7 when booting directly into the 3.2.1 system, my guess is that you have a
8 kernel problem.
10 Theoretically, the only effective difference between the chroot environment
11 and the directly booted environment is whether a 2.95.3 compiled or a 3.2.1
12 compiled kernel is running.
14 Consider adding a new boot menu option which boots the gcc 3.2.1 system using
15 the kernel from the 2.95.3 system. If you don't have problems with this, your
16 3.2.1 system has a bad kernel.
18 WHY that kernel would be bad is a pretty open question. It probably has
19 nothing to do with it being compiled with the newer gcc; perhaps the
20 configuration is somehow wrong? Or perhaps Gentoo has started using newer
21 kernel versions with slightly different binary interfaces, and you need to
22 compile libc against the new kernel so that it uses the new binary interface.
24 Good luck, in any case.
