My OS: https://github.com/maxtyson123/max-os/

When I am trying to override the new() functions etc I am getting an error saying the size parameter should be a 64 bit number even though the custom compiler targets 32bit:
Code:
in file included from kernel/src/memory/memorymanagement.cpp:5:

kernel/include/memory/memorymanagement.h:78:7: error: 'operator new' takes type 'size_t' ('long unsigned int') as first parameter [-fpermissive]

78 | void* operator new(unsigned size);


I am wondering why this happens as when I try to compile it with my dist's gcc it works fine (after passing in the relevant 32bit parms)

No, you are getting an error saying the size parameter should be size_t. In your chosen ABI, size_t is equivalent to long unsigned int, which means in your chosen ABI, long unsigned int is 32 bits.

Your cross-compiler includes freestanding headers like stddef.h that include the correct definitions for standard types like size_t. Use those headers.
