Question Compiling an AMD64 kernel from a 32-bit environment


Hey, I have an AMD64 (x86-64 arch, obviously), and I love slackware, but unfortunately, there are no versions out that have been made specially for AMD64. Therefore, they're all 32-bit userlands. This is a problem, because apparently, you can't make a 64-bit kernel when you're in a 32-bit userland right off the bat.

So my question is, how can I make a 64-bit kernel?

Do I need to cross-compile or something nasty like that?
