On my Blade 100, I've got a different CHOST setting: CHOST="sparc-unknown-linux-gnu" My recollection (which, admittedly, may be foggy) is that 64-bit user space isn't recommended/supported. Typically, sun4u boxes run a 64-bit kernel with 32-bit user-space apps, e.g., root # file /boot/vmlinux-2.4.27-local1 /boot/vmlinux-2.4.27-local1: ELF 64-bit MSB executable, SPARC V9, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, not stripped root # file /sbin/init /sbin/init: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, SPARC32PLUS, V8+ Required, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped --Paul Heinlein <heinlein@××××××.com> -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
