I referred to hardfloat as in compiled for hf, not that it can emulate

I want to tun the slackwarearm installer which is nothing but an
initrd image but, if you remember the other thread on cros-discuss,  I
can't extract it properly because cpio is not available on the
Chromebook. I have successfully performed Slackware installations on
the Intel arch using Qemu and I would like to replicate this on the
Chromebook. I am working on installing Slackware on a usb flash drive
reusing the Chrome OS kernel, as per Olof's tutorial.

If you ask me why I don't run Slackware in a chroot, yes I can in text
mode but I cannot start Xorg in chroot as another Xorg server is
already running on the Chromebook and that one cannot be shut down.
