I'm stuck with 2.4 for the time being: for one of my cards there's no
2.6-compatible driver available.
I tried to boot Debian/AMD64 with a custom 2.4 kernel (compiled from
kernel-source-2.4.27) but when it gets to userland initialization I see
the message "FATAL: Kernel too old" and it just hangs there.
I googled for a solution and it looks like the problem is that
Debian/AMD64's default glibc is compiled for a 2.6 kernel. But I didn't
manage to find out how to install an alternate glibc, or whether such an
alternative exists at all. Since the 2.4 tree is included in the
repository, I guess it does exist?
If it doesn't, how would I go about building a 2.4-compliant glibc for
the AMD64 platform, and how do I make sure all userland programs use my
Thanks for any hint
