It's a M68k (68030) with an MVME147 system and has 8MB RAM

Just entered the chroot, created devs and it's compiling gcc dynamically now.... The static stage took a week (using 2.3.7, now switched to 2.4 for chroot bit).

I didn't type all the commands in, but scripted it...

It took 9 hours for binutils, 29 hours for gcc and 67 hours for glibc!

Bye for Now,
