Hi,

I'am running an amd64 laptop and I would like to build a kernel with
gcc-.34 like the kernel images avaible on the internet. Therefore, it
seems I can only build kernel with gcc-3.3. I did change some
variables in the kernel-source's Makefile and the environment
variables, but the resulting kernel is always compiled with gcc-3.3.
I
compile the kernel the Debian way with make-kpkg. Is there any
options
to add with make-kpkg to use gcc-3.4? Why the kernel-source package
isn't configured to be build by defauly with gcc-3.4, it seems the
more natural, or it is on purpose?
I'm sorry I'm pretty unknowledgeable with compiling kernels and the
different versions of gcc but any informations will be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

Here's what I do: before compiling, change the /usr/bin/gcc symlink
from
/usr/bin/gcc-3.3 to /usr/bin/gcc-3.4. Afterwards, change it back.

Goswin's solution is more worthy of a true geek of course ;-)

I use the following:

MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4" \
make-kpkg --revision <my_revivion> \
        --append-to-version -<my_version> \
        --initrd \
        --rootcmd fakeroot kernel_image

I use something like 20050205 (the date) for <my_revision>
And -k8-1 for my version, you can increase the number as you create more versions ;-)
