I tried installing the tools with an ARM64 chroot also and had a similar issue. 
 In that case, the package
"crossbuild_essential_arm64" wouldn't install because it depended on a package 
that was not installable.

I don't use crossbuild within the chroot. My chroot contains ARM64 binaries 
only and QEMU is used to run ARM64 binaries.

In that case, you don't need to install crossbuild_essential_arm64. Compiling in that chroot is like compiling directly on an ARM platforms.

My runes are usually:

make -j install-tools

This will install the tools in /usr/local/

I think the list of dependencies on the CrossCompiling page is still valid:


Which distributions are you targeting?

        [nickgarnett 1707041454PDT]  I am using Xen 4.9.0

I meant Linux Distribution. E.g is it Debian, Fedora, Yocto?
