Warnings treated as errors


Hi!

Compiler version: gcc (GCC) 4.1.0 20060304 (Red Hat 4.1.0-3)

I was trying to build libraries from source given by a module that I will hooked up to my host computer. The build process kept being terminated everytime warnings are being found.

How do I bypass the warnings and continue compiling? I really need to build this library to develope my program.

Thanks.

If warnings are not serious, find where -Werror is set and replace it with -Wno-error.

How do I find out where Werror is set? I'm completely new to gcc and I saw other threads that says I can do that as well with the same command. I typed the command but it didn't work. I was wondering maybe I'm missing something. If you don't mind, please bring me through this process step by step.

Thank you for your reply.

Well, first try
export CFLAGS=-Wno-error
and build the library. And say, what is the build system.
