I think this thread topic is a toss-up between Linux- Software and Programming, but I decided to post it here in Programming.
I have been trying to build gcc-3.3 from source for a specific target machine. I am running SimplyMEPIS(Debian-based) linux. Target machine= mips64-unknown-elf
During make, I get this error:
as: Unrecognized option -G
I look up, and sure enough, amongst a jungle of other commands, is a -G. And -G (as far as I know) isn't supposed to be there. I researched the problem, and found two others who had the same problem, both of them compiling for mips targets, but they do not have definitive responses. I cannot post their URLS because LinuxQuestions had a wierd rule that you cannot post URLS until you have at least three posts. So to find those, search "as: Unrecognized option -G" in Google.
Anyway, I tried looking through many of the shell scripts and make and whatever for -G. None came up with what I was looking for (I was gonna just try to take it out)Anybody know what causes this, or how I can fix it?
Thanks In Advance for any help
