Subject: Failed to execute /init (error -2) for system-wide musl libc

On NodeOS we are having some problems creating an i686 cross-compiler
using musl (

The point is that by generating a fully statically linked Node.js
executable it boot correctly, but by using a dynamically one we get a
"Failed to execute /init (error -2)" error. We have crafted the
cross-compiler following the instructions at with no lack. The fact is that
executables compiled with the cross-toolchain works on our desktops
but they don't on QEmu, and we've added all the dynamic libraries that
readelf request (only, & As a
curious side note, when installing the musl-linked gcc libraries, the
/lib/ link dissapear from the cross-toochain folder,
but also adding it by hand all the dynamic linked executables refuse
to load on QEmu, also a simple "Hello World" that only depends on :-/

We are getting out of ideas, any clue about what could be happening?

Greetings, and Happy New Year :-)
