yesterday i managed to get glibc 2.2 debian source packages to compile
under mips - I used cvs gcc 20001007 and binutils of the same date
including 2 patches for gcc.
For glibc i used the default debian source package 2.1.95 + 2 patches
concerning dl-machine.h - One from the cvs and one from oss.sgi.com.
Packages are available at
It seems that the incompatibility problems i had with previous versions
concerning bash are gone. I am able to compile a 2.2 bash in the chroot
populated with the glibc 2.2 and 2.0 binarys ( And it also works ).
It seems there is a bug in bash concerning non-existance of /proc
which will cause my bash to segfault but mounting proc in the chroot
