compiling gcc seond fail around libjava


Hi

I'm compiling gcc 4.2 on my gcc 4.1.2 FC8.

I'm compiling "all" of the compilers, and after over two hours - for the second time running - I have an error at what appears to be close to the end, with libjava.

The first time, I had configure errors, which I didn't notice. But then I corrected them, hoping they would be the cause. But now, the configure phase is fine, and errors pop out at libjava stage.

Anyone had this before? I'm giving it a third go now, this time I'm not compiling java, just all the others, to see how I go.

If other people have had similar trouble, I'd be happy to hear from them.

Cheers!

Hi -

It's kind of hard to speculate what the problem might be unless you cut/paste some of the error messages.

Just FYI, I'd discourage you from using Gnu Java unless you had a good reason ("it's a requirement" and "it might be fun" both qualify as "good reasons"). In general, you'll probably have better luck with the Sun JVM than with Gnu Java .exe's and libraries.

IMHO .. PSM

Hi paulsm4,

thanks for the quick reply. Yep, you're definitely right .. things can get reeeealy complicated especially with such a key tool. I was really looking for pointers from people who have done it before.

Amazingly, I can't find an error log anywhere. Even so, the output messages were very austere, giving away little. I have the third compile on the boiler now, without, as you also suggest, the java.

Cheers!

Hi -

Maybe there isn't a log. In which case you could try something like:
Quote:
make all > make.err
or
Quote:
make all | tee make.err
or
Quote:
script mylog.txt
make all
<Ctl-D>
<= This terminates the "script" action; everything displayed to the screen will have been written to "mylog.txt"
'Hope that helps .. PSM
