11 Foreign Architectures

You can target computers of different CPU architectures when producing packages (see Вызов guix package), packs (see Вызов guix pack) or full systems (see Invoking guix system).

GNU Guix supports two distinct mechanisms to target foreign architectures:

  1. The traditional cross-compilation mechanism.
  2. The native building mechanism which consists in building using the CPU instruction set of the foreign system you are targeting. It often requires emulation, using the QEMU program for instance.
