cross-compiling to i386 using gcc 10

Ever had that issue on Ubuntu?

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/10/libgcc.a when searching for -lgcc

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/10/libgcc.a when searching for -lgcc

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc 

Install the following:

  • gcc-10-multilib
  • g++-10-multilib (for C++)

Increase VM storage on-line

Increase from 300 G to 400 G using the same storage, but leverage LVM on GPT inside the VM.

Host:

lvextend -L +100G /dev/mapper/guests--lolguest
virsh qemu-monitor-command lolguest info block --hmp
virsh qemu-monitor-command lolguest block_resize drive-virtio-disk0 400G --hmp

VM:

sgdisk -e /dev/vda
gdisk /dev/vda # <-- create partition 5
partprobe /dev/vda
pvcreate /dev/vda5
vgextend ubuntu-vg /dev/vda5
lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu-lv
resize2fs /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-ubuntu--lv

Always watch out for paths, partition numbers and names!
