I need to rebuild a very old Linux 2.4 kernel for an ARM device. Said kernel will (as far as I know) not build correctly with gcc 4. So I need an older compiler for it.
Unfortunately none of my sources for precompiled compiler packages contain anything older than about 4.4 any more --- I've looked at CodeSourcery, emdebian and Scratchbox. I've tried compiling it myself, but while I've managed to figure out how to build gcc 4 (the instructions on how to do so I wrote up is one of the most popular on my website...) gcc 3 is beyond me, just failing with incomprehensible erros; and gcc 2.95 is so infamously hard to compile that I haven't even tried.
Surely somebody must have a source for precompiled packages that work on Ubuntu!
I'm using Maverick.
