Cannot compile C++ on Slackware Current (multilib)
So I'm having a little bit of trouble compiling any c++ software. I get this as output:


jay@boromir:~$ gcc test.cpp
gcc: error trying to exec 'cc1plus': execvp: No such file or directory

jay@boromir:~$ c++ test.cpp
In file included from test.cpp:1:0:
/usr/include/stdio.h:34:21: fatal error: stddef.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

Any idea what's going on?

have you upgraded to the multilib gcc and glibc?

halborr 02-27-2012 08:57 PM

gcc says it's upgraded, but gcc-c++ and glibc say they're not.

you have to fully upgrade to multilib packages or else you will end up with problems :)

Could I downgrade gcc then? I don't think I've actually ever *used* the multilib install (in retrospect, I should not have done it, because it seems to make a mess of my system). Come to think of it, I bet there's a command that would remove all multilib packages and revert them back to what they were originally. What would that be?

Hey lookit, downgrading gcc to the slackware package did it. What's weird is that I could have sworn I installed a lot of multilib packages, but when I unblacklisted "alien" packages from upgrading, it only replaced gcc. I guess I can mark this solved, thanks!
