GCC compiler not working


Hi
I have done a mistake in storing a shared library by the following command

$ cp ./libshared.so.1.0.0 /usr/bin/ld


This has created a problem by spoiling the ld file, now when i run a program it is showing...

vijaya@vijaya:/SVK/Myprograms$ gcc cprog.c
collect2: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault], core dumped

Now what shall i do?? how can i retain the ld file.

I have tried to reinstall GCC, but it is not getting installed. If i try to remove GCC it is showing, Ur system might not work hereafter.


Please find me a solution.

The easiest way is to copy /usr/bin/ld from your backup files.

If you do not have any backup then you will have to reinstall whatever package provides /usr/bin/ld. I think that /usr/bin/ld comes from the binutils package but that may or may not be true for your distribution. What distribution and package manager are you using?

Use your package manager to find out what package provides /usr/bin/ld and then reinstall that package.

Try installing binutils again or decompress a binutils package and get the ld file..

http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/b/binutils/

I believe you can also get away with apt-get. Cheers.
