[linux-yocto] multiple compilers

Hi Dan,
I don't generally do compilers, but the Yocto way is to create another recipe where the SRC_URI points to the tarball/git repository you want to build from. It may be that you will need to start with an older compiler .bb recipe, you don't say how far back you need to go.

You don't really say what you've tried, so I can't help much with specifics, as I am not sure of your level of proficiency with Yocto/bitbake.

How do I configure yocto to create multiple compilers?  I need to create a second (older) compiler to build the kernel.  It won't boot using the current one.  I've searched in vain to find a solution.  It says you can do it, but it dosn't tell you how.
