Well I wanted to build glibc 2.2 binaries. And I need the newer gcc
for that, don't I?
I tried to setup the chroot environment and even cannot start bash. I
unpackaged libc6_2.1.95-1.1.deb, bash_2.04-7.deb,
libreadline4_4.1-2.deb and tried to build libncurses5. But bash just
crashes. Other binaries like locale are working:
#chroot /new/ /usr/bin/locale
#chroot /new/ /bin/bash
#chroot /new/ /bin/bash --help
GNU bash, version 2.04.0(1)-release-(mips-mips-linux-gnu)
So I suppose something is wrong with libncurses5.
How did you get the chroot environment for glibc2.2 with bash working?
