help: failed build of GCC 4.3 on SLES 10/gcc 4.1 ia64


have an altix machine, it is itanium-2 64-bit running novel suse linux enterprise server 10 sp1.
current gcc version is 4.1

i downloaded gcc 4.3 and tried to build it, here's what i did and what happens:

./configure => I specify location of newly installed latest versions of GMP and MPFR, this seems to run fine
and create the Makefile.

make => I run make and after a couple hours or so it ends with an Error 2 status coming out of the
gfortran directory. I am rerunning it now to save all the output from make.

what's the secret to getting the build to work? All i really want is gcc and gfortran installed on the side in /usr/local.

from the make output,

this line executes ok:

I wish that someone knew that answer to this--I'm having the same problem on a Suse box x86_64. It's something about the inline variations of stdio.h. I saw a bug in gcc bugzilla closed because it wasn't their fault, but they didn't say what the problem or the fix was. Anyone got a clue?

Once you've got a working compiler, you can configure and build any source package you wish.

But until then, you can't build anything.

You need to install a *binary* (pre-built) version of GCC before you can go any further.

"yum -x install gcc" is good advice. I can't think of any reason a 32-bit version wouldn't run on your 64-bit OS - try it.

For Novell/Suse, you would use the YaST GUI package manager (instead of the yum command line). I'd be surprised if GCC wasn't easily available right on your installation CD.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

PS:
The "errno 2" simply means "file doesn't exist".

PPS:
Most 64-bit OS's (all versions of Windows, and all versions of Linux I've seen) have parallel runtime support, so that you can run either 32-bit or 64-bit executables.

Unhappy No, there's a compiler

If you read through the thread, you'll see output showing multiple definitions of functions when a library is trying to be linked--much code has been built already. Talking with the gcc folks, via bugtrac, they said the problem was building in the source tree rather than in an objdir. That turned out not to be true. Building in an objdir yeilded the same multiple definition problem even quicker when linking another library.
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=36349
If I get any resolution there I'll share the information here.
