Bug#649094: xapt: paths not fixed in libc.so in cross packages

Le 17/11/2011 17:23, Neil Williams a écrit :
xapt only downloads the packages. Anything after that happens with
dpkg-cross which has a limited future in Debian as it is completely
incompatible with Multiarch.

I wouldn't recommend doing any new work based on dpkg-cross or xapt.
The future is Multiarch.

I know but I found nothing in the wiki nor in packages telling how
to build a cross compiler with Multiarch..

There is documentation already on how to build cross-compilers and
there is the buildcross package in experimental.

Sorry. I looked at various place (mostly current packages and
http://wiki.debian.org/BuildingCrossCompilers ).
  I missed the reference at the buildcross package in the first
lines of the wiki page but I tried to follow what it written next
in this wiki page. My 'script' was just the list of commands
explained in this wiki.

I see no need to fix this bug. You're re-inventing a script which
already exists in Debian and you are using outdated tools to do it.
It's a hiding to nothing and a completely wasted effort. Talk to the
debian-embedded people and maintainer of buildcross.

Right now, the only practical cross-compiler methods are all based on
stable. Everything in testing and unstable is just too broken to use.

Ok. So I will try to build a mips cross-compiler from stable as I'm doing
know, ie with old tools (I need a cross compiler for my students quickly).

I will also try the buildcross package in experimental as this is
the future.
