ld: cannot find -lc while compiling gcc


I'm trying LFS for the first time on mandrake 10.1 official. While building gcc during pass 1 i get the following error:
/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lc

A more complete error message is the following:

stage1/xgcc -Bstage1/ -B/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ -g -O2 -DIN_GCC -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes -pedantic -Wno-long-long -Wold-style-definition -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DGENERATOR_FILE -static -o genmodes \
genmodes.o errors.o ../libiberty/libiberty.a
/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [genmodes] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/lfs/sources/gcc-build/gcc'
make[1]: *** [stage2_build] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lfs/sources/gcc-build/gcc'
make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2

My binutils compiled without any problem. Any ideas?

I have exactly the same problem but I can't find the glibc-static-devel that fit with my glibc-devel version( 2.3.3-20)

Does someone know where I can find it, (or how can I upgrade my glibc-devel (all my attempts have failed )) ?

glibc-static-devel is on the third cd of the Mandrake releases. You should also be able to find the RPM on your favorite mandrake mirror.

I have read the fac, thanks

It's not on mine(mdk10.1 community)

and mirrors, rpm search ,google search and all the traditionnal things gave no(satisfying) result for glib-static-devel-2.3.3-20. I tryed with other versions but it didn't work (logicaly... my glibc-devel is 2.3.3-20)

Please help me

I can't find the one to match that either. As a work around, you can safely build your first 2 packages (binutils pass 1 and gcc pass 1) as dynamic instead of static, and you should be ok.

Question

Hi,

I had the same problem as you.
Did the proposed solution work for you ?

Does dynamicaly compiling gcc pass 1 occure problems in later LFS building steps ?

I want to be sure before continuing with Mandrake or not.

Thanks

Aerendil

No, It's the last problem i've had during the rest of the process... You could continue easily after this step
