I have been working on this for a week or so to try to determine the
best way to accomplish building it from Slack and here's what I've
1) Slack apparently has a broken libc.a and it causes the chapter 5
static build of glibc to fail. It has something to do with libs being
stripped by the people producing Slack using a buggy copy of the strip
There are some workarounds to this including rebuilding the host libs
or compiling the chapter 5 binutils and gcc as dynamic rather than
static. I'm trying to figure out the best fix right now.
2) Slack's before slack-current (the development slack) are using 2.4
kernels. The slack-current changelog lists a switch to 2.6.11 a
couple weeks ago so I'm dowloading it to see if it might also fix
It isn't too hard to update the kernel but the posted solutions to 1
bother me so I'm trying to figure out the best solution.
Hope this helps.
