No because I should use
Anyway I managed to compile it with gcc-4.5, but now I get a kernel
panic when trying to boot, might be still something missing
I just compiled with the default config and didn't create the
initramfs, but I'm not using LVM or other fancy things and the root
fs seems to mount correctly..

It seems to not store anywhere the log about the kernel panic though,
which makes it harder to understand..
I might just give up and use something else, or otherwise is there a
way to run another kernel in a running system (in a sort of chroot?)?
