LFS on PPC(linux-headers)


I am installing LFS-CVS-2004-06-02 on my new ibook.

So I just passed binutils and gcc. Now I have to install Linux-Libc-Headers-

it say to copy include/asm-i386 to /tools/include/asm
I am not sure if that instruction is the right one for me (cause me==powerpc)
there is also a dir named asm-ppc.

I just dont know if include/asm-i386 is just for iX86 or if its independent(like the asm-generic headers) so that i (ppc) can use then too.

In the next step it says to install the Linux-2.6.6 Headers: a instruction is like this:
make include/asm (to install the platform-specific header files)

What should I do???

Of course you should install the headers for your architecture. If you read the Toolchain technical notes page it makes it clear you should be aware what platform you're building on, so copy include/asm-ppc if that's the right one. When it says
make include/asm - just run the command as the book says. The makefile should be able to figure out what platform you're building on.
