Yes, you are right --- I just found out that on FC17 64bit one cannot run arm x-tools because of /lib/ld-linux.so.2 ELF interpreter issues. So, using VirtualBox saved me a lot of time and trouble attempting to switch to the latest 64bit OS --- now I know that I should stay with my old good FC12 32bit
Or, if it's only kindle developement tools, there's no reason not to use 32bit FC17 (or 12) in a VirtualBox of 64bit FC17.

But I like the VirtualBox idea... Is it portable? I.e. can I take my vdi files and use them on some other system using any OS (obviously installing VirtualBox software for that OS first)? Or is each vdi image bound to a specific host OS on which it was produced?
I can't be 100% sure, since I never tried that, but I see no reason why it shouldn't be. What I did try is exporting to .ova on Windows and importing that .ova in Linux without problems. Files are much smaller that way .

Now, back to kindle. I tried using x-tools and it failed. This is what I did:

Code:
$ tar xzvf x-tools-glibc2.5-gcc4.2.4.tar.gz
this made x-tools-glib2.5 dir, with arm-kindle-linux-gnueabi inside it. I did this next:

Code:
$ cd x-tools-glib2.5

$ mv arm-kindle-linux-gnueabi arm

$ sudo mv arm /usr/local/
then I edited my .profile file, and added this as the last line:

PATH="/usr/local/arm/arm-kindle-linux-gnueabi/bin:$PATH"

and then relogged. I checked if it's all ok:

Code:
$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/arm/arm-kindle-linux-gnueabi/bin:/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games
Then I deleted kindlepdfviewer dir, and did git clone again, and than make fetchthirdparty (just to be sure).

then I did

Code:
$ HOST=arm-kindle-linux-gnueabi make thirdparty
and the result is

Code:
make -C mupdf CC="gcc" build/debug/cmapdump
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/kai771/kindlepdfviewer/mupdf'
    MKDIR build/debug
    CC build/debug/cmapdump.o
gcc: error trying to exec 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [build/debug/cmapdump.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/kai771/kindlepdfviewer/mupdf'
make: *** [mupdf/cmapdump.host] Error 2
What did I do wrong?

I am positive that I'm using 32bit Ubuntu:
