I'm cross compiling the Pi kernel from a x86 machine.
On the https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools/tr ... rm-bcm2708
I can find 2 hard-float compilers
which are a 4.7 and 4.8 version respectively.
this page suggests to use the former http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilatio ... from_Linux
(which btw works very well)
what is the difference? what do people normally use? what is the linaro used for?
