Original post

A go application that runs on a small low energy MIPS (LE) device keeps crashing after a while because it can not run the garbage collector. It throws a fatal runtime error : epollcreate failed with 89

the device runs on a Linux 2.2 Kernel and does not support Epoll.

Is there a way to compile a go application in a way that does not require Epoll (e.g. polyfill it) ?
