Hi Tim,

The host compiler is probably okay so long as your target is the same (or compatible). In fact, the host based packages that LTIB uses builds uses this method to populate the stuff in /opt/ltib/....

You may run into one or two gotchas with respect to things like base-libs where the layout of the compiler is presumed to be that of a CodeSourcery toolchain. With this in mind you may have to either fix that .spec file, or have some substitute (you could place in config/platform/_your_x86_target_/

Greetings Stuart-

Would a cross compiler be required? Could the system's native compilers be used?

Hi Tim,

As far as I know no one has made a BSP for an x86, however this should
be straightforward. All that is needed is a config/platform/_target_
area and a suitable cross-compiler.

answer: can LTIB be used to generate a rootfs/kernel for x86 arch? I
see the system types/options present within LTIB (./ltib
--configure) for various ARM, PPC, etc boards/archs, but not x86.
Maybe I'm missing a generic template?
