Need help with multilib compilation

Does anybody have any idea how one would go about performing multilib compilations (my google-fu is running low today). Basically, I need to compile a library for different kernel versions and i'm thinking multilib is the way to go. Any pointers and/or tutorials on this is much appreciated.

Re: Need help with multilib compilation


This is about compiling and running multilib between different architectures ( 32 / 64 bit ):

If You want to build for different libs / kernel version just change the include/library paths in Your build scripts
Parameters for gcc like -i -L -I most likely are configured in makefiles. Also read man for gcc and make.

You can have many different versions of same libs/sources installed in the system, same goes for different kernels and kernel sources.

Hope it helps.
