I got this far indeed, but i couldn't post that yesterday evening. Indeed, i'm currently using 2.3.something
so, i tried to switch to 2.4. didn't work out, because (as said below) i'm using i386 for compiling. and 2.4 requires nptl, which requires i386

this could be true, $(CHOST) is set to i386. uname -a, as posted, says that my system is athlon XP and i686. on gentoo, that means i'll have to rebuild my whole system. Not that much of a problem, but i'll have to find some free days.
THX for all help!
