what is the use of mpfr and gmp is they are not used ? Manual error ?


I refer to the LFS 6.5



http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...gcc-pass1.html

Here they
say


Quote:
tar -jxf ../mpfr-2.4.1.tar.bz2
mv -v mpfr-2.4.1 mpfr
tar -jxf ../gmp-4.3.1.tar.bz2
mv -v gmp-4.3.1 gmp
but then I don't see mpfr and gmp mentioned anywhere else in the page.

Can I proceed with ../gcc-4.4.1/configure without worrying about such
weird thing ?

Hi,

Both GMP and MPFR are needed by GCC (math and arithmetic library dependencies). There's no need to mention them on the commandline (./configure .... step), gcc will look for them and fail if both are not present.

Take a look at chapter 6 (6.13 and 6.14) for some more details about these packages.

Hope this clears things up a bit.

can i revert to lfs 6.4 ?

I highly suspect the combination of gcc4.4.1,mpfr2.4.2 and gmp4.3.1 is
having problem.

if i had a chance to build lfs 6.4.. that would be nice. how can i find the source and the manual for lfs6.4 ?

Seriously considering 6.4.

Hi,

First thing I noticed when looking at the output posted in reply #4: You extracted all three packets at the wrong location.

Steps to take for 5.5 GCC 4.1 pass 1:

Code:
cd /mnt/lfs/sources (all packages/patches should be here)
tar jxf gcc-4.4.1.tar.bz2
cd gcc-4.4.1
tar -jxf ../mpfr-2.4.1.tar.bz2 (here both mpfr and gmp are unpacked)
mv -v mpfr-2.4.1 mpfr
tar -jxf ../gmp-4.3.1.tar.bz2
mv -v gmp-4.3.1 gmp
mkdir -v ../gcc-build (create and enter temp build directory)
cd ../gcc-build
You are now standing in the temporary build dir and can continue with the next step (configure).

I also see that you use CentOS as a base system, I hope you did check (and corrected if needed) this: iv. Host System Requirements. It is very important that these are correct/up to specs.

Jope this helps.

Thanks for extra eyes. I did it too fast. I copied the gmp wrongly! Will report back

I redo the gcc part, it is working now ! Thanks ! There is no problem
between gcc4.4.1, mpfr-2.4.1 and gmp4.3.1. Sorry for the confusion.
