Hi Krishna,

i. I don't think there's any issues with compatibility between i386 and
x86_64 with respect to the Linux distro. libc6-i386 is used to create
32-bit executables for Mynewt.
ii. I don't believe there are any required packages.
iii. The newt tool itself is statically linked, so it doesn't need any
libraries to run. For specific versions for the toolchains, the ones listed
in the original response should be sufficient.

If I'm missing any information, maybe the rest of the group can chime in.
It could also be beneficial to look into creating a flatpak for newt.

Best,

David
