Compiled Linux Files


Hello,

I was wondering, is there a place to download linux compiled binaries? For instance, i have lost the files make, gcc, and rpm.

I transferred these files from an Ubuntu version but when i run them i get the error:

make: /lib/lib.so.6: version "GLIBC_2.4" not found

is there anywhere to download the just the files compiled already?

Thanks

Are you missing those files, or are they just not in your PATH? And if you have your package manager (yum, rpm, aptitude, dpkg, etc) available, you should just reinstall those programs from your repository.

If you actually deleted those binary files by mistake, then I think the problem is you have to download a file specific for your distro. For example, in Debian, I can just download the *.deb file and unpack it (or install it) using dpkg. If you lost your package manager (rpm), you might have to unpack the rpm file for the program "rpm" using some other utility like 7-zip. Then you should be able to copy it where it goes.

What distro are you using?

the files were linked to a folder that no longer exists on the system, i recreated the folder and started adding the missing executables.

I am not sure of the distro.....

when i do a uname -a i get:

Linux localhost 2.4.31 #1 PREEEMT Thu May 10 04:07:14 UTC i686 unknown GNU/Linux

any idea what distro that is?

You can try cat /etc/*release and/or cat /proc/version and/or cat /etc/version. The files might be names XXX_release or XXX_version, so you might just go poke around the /etc and /proc directories to see.
