Error - GCC


Hello everyone,

I'm quite new to linux therefore please bear with me. While compiling GCC i encountered an error. I cannot install glibc as my gcc is not up2date, hence my installing of the gcc.

Quote:
real:/gcc-3.3# ./configure
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1 host.
*** This configuration is not supported in the following subdirectories:
target-libffi target-boehm-gc target-zlib target-libjava
(Any other directories should still work fine.)
Created "Makefile" in /gcc-3.3 using "mt-frag"
/usr/bin/ld: cannot open crt1.o: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** The command 'gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.
Can anyone help me?

What distribution do you use? You should be able to just grab the gcc and other development packages from the installation CD's or from the distribution site (FTP server or whatever). Oh, and libcrt1.o is usually part of the glibc development package.

Correct but, the gcc version is not updated and is not accepted by glibc. I use debian.

Someone told me not to compile it from source/update version as it will break many programs. Guess i'm stuck here.

What gcc version do you need? If you do an apt-cache search gcc-3 you should probably see that you have access to at least a 3.0.x release of gcc if you run Woody/stable. If you run Sarge/testing you will probably be able to grab 3.2 or 3.3.

Maybe you can find the answer at this link:

Just type in gcc and Debs extention in the drop down box and it should give you what you are looking for.

With all due respect, http://packages.debian.org does an excellent job for Debian packages.
