compilation error in standard header fpos.h in gcc 3.2.2


I am facing some problems with the gcc version 3.2.2. When installing a package on linux, it tries to compile some files but outputs the following error:

/usr/include/c++/3.2.2/bits/fpos.h:60: 'streamoff' is used as a type, but is not defined as a type.


This error is followed by many other errors (but I found the same combination of errors a lot when trying to search for a solution on google). I was wondering what the problem was and if there was a known solution to it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I actually am in desperate need for help!

Thanks again!

What distribution are you using? And what program(s) are you trying to install?

Here is the content of /proc/version:

Linux version 2.4.25master (root@master) (gcc version 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5))

I'm trying to install a package for statistical natural language processing training. Its called GenPar. Hope that information helps. Has anyone heard of this error before?

Thanks again

If it is at all possible, I'd recommend upgrading to Fedora Core rather than continuing to use RedHat. The official RedHat distribution is no longer in production, and no longer supported by RedHat. Fedora Core is essentially RedHat, just not officially maintained by the RedHat company itself.

If this isn't possible, you could always try editing line 60 in fpos.h to correct whatever it is that GCC is complaining about.

Honestly though, upgrading the entire distribution is probably your best bet. RedHat has been "deprecated" for some time now, and that is not going to change.

if it's saying
bits/c++config.h: No such file or directory
this was a temporary problem in a particular build of libstdc++

Whoa... hold on a sec. RedHat personal may have moved along to FedoraCore, but RedHat Enterprise is very much alive and well. Assuming he's using Enterprise and not a horribly outdated version of RedHat personal then it's probably modern. Otherwise, I would agree: update

I'm not knowledgeable about the bug foo_bar_foo references, but my first question would be: how are you installing it? Are there step-by-step instructions (configure, make, make install) or is this a custom job? I haven't searched for the package to look over it yet. If it's a custom sequence of commands, it'd be helpful to see what commands you're issuing to compile.

Well, I cannot upgrade to Fedora (I just have and account on that machine).. As for the instructions, Im simply following instructions on the documentation of the package (after setting all the variables and stuff, its a simple "make all"!)..
Is it something to do with the gcc? I will send an email to gcc-help@gnu.org, just in case... But please do reply if you have any solutions though... Thanks a lot!
