     36  <para>To chroot, you will also need a Linux Kernel-2.6.x (having been
     37  compiled with GCC-3.0 or greater). The reason for the kernel version
     38  requirement is that thread-local
     39  storage support in Binutils will not be built and
     40  the Native POSIX Threading Library (NPTL) test suite will segfault if
     41  the host's kernel isn't at least a 2.6.x version compiled with a 3.0 or
     42  later release of GCC.</para>
     43
     44  <para>To check your kernel version, run <command>cat /proc/version</command>
     45  - if it does not say that you are running a 2.6.2 or later Linux kernel,
     46  compiled with GCC 3.0 or later, you cannot chroot.</para>
     47
    3648  <para os="e">For the boot method, follow <xref linkend="chapter-boot"/>.</para>
