I have changed the xm-test/ramdisk/Makefile.am to look like this now. With this only x86-64 so far gets its own config for the uClibc.

-                 cp configs/uClibc $(BR_SRC)/toolchain/uClibc/uClibc.config
+                 if [ $(BR_ARCH) == "x86_64" ]; then                       \
+                                  cp configs/uClibc-$(BR_ARCH)                      \
+                                                   $(BR_SRC)/toolchain/uClibc/uClibc.config; \
+                 else                                                      \
+                                  cp configs/uClibc                                 \
+                                                   $(BR_SRC)/toolchain/uClibc/uClibc.config; \
+                 fi

Is this better?

I had encountered this error here:


And thanks on the hint on how to patch hping2. It works now - at least for x86-64.
