If you want to compile a ppc kernel on x86, you need a cross compile
environment (compiler,linker,as,..).

I try to compile a kernel on my ibook for the Motorola, but
it doesn't boot. I don't know if it's possible to build it natively
without cross compilation. 
Doesn't boot, means I get a stack exception ...

Kernelversion: 2.4.20-rc4-ben0

# Platform support
# CONFIG_4xx is not set
# CONFIG_POWER3 is not set
# CONFIG_POWER4 is not set
# CONFIG_8xx is not set
# CONFIG_8260 is not set
# CONFIG_CPU_FREQ is not set
# CONFIG_APUS is not set
# CONFIG_SPRUCE is not set
# CONFIG_PAL4 is not set
# CONFIG_GEMINI is not set
# CONFIG_SMP is not set
# CONFIG_ALTIVEC is not set
# CONFIG_TAU is not set


Anyone an idea or a working .config I can use to build
a new kernel for the 604e ppc machine?
