cross compile for i686


Any idea how I can get hold of the gcc libraries for 'i686-pc-linux-gnu'? since I dont have i686 in my /usr/gcc-lib dir, I only need the files to do a cross-compile from my current system. Or if anyone would be good enough to tar their i686 dir so I can download it that would be great.

Thanks for any help

You can just compile yourself a i686 gcc.

A simple way to do that is to use crosstool.

It's a really straightforward way to build toolchains for cross-compiling.
