Problems building glibc-2.3.2
Has anyone had any success building glibc-2.3.2 on a stock install of Red Hat 9.0 or Mandrake 9.1 ?
When I run 'make', it proceeds successfully until it gets to the source sub-directory ../glibc-2.3.2/string. Once there it builds a few files and then gets into an infinite loop where it keeps re-entering the same directory. I've tried the build both as root and as user.
I opened a PR at the official GNU bugs web site but was closed as a local environment problem on my side without any tips on how to solve the problem. I suspect it could be some sort of compiler flag problem but have no idea what to set.
One of many configure option settings I used:
../glibc-2.3.2/configure --prefix=/root/glibc232bld --disable-profile --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --with-headers=/usr/src/linux/include --with-binutils=/usr/bin
Installed tools used for compilation:
thanks in advance
