Re: uclibc-i386 packages

Thanks, Neil,

xen-create-image is one of the perl programs from Steve Kemp's excellent 'xen-tools' package.  It builds a filesystem for a xen domU.  This filesystem can then be booted using xm create ( see xmdomain.cfg(5) and xm(1) ).

Are there plans for other architectures in this repository?  The requirement of 120M+ for a minimal etch is too great for some of the projects I plan to work on.

There are no i386 packages at that repository, only arm.

That doesn't need a cross-compiler, it just needs patches so that the
correct libc is located. I haven't done anything with uclibc yet though
so I'll defer to Simon.
