gcc


I've got a question... If I mess up gcc in the process of trying to update it is it repairable with a binary install or something? or am i screwed?

dsl, i tried compiling a file and it didn't want to compile with gcc from mydsl, so i downloaded gcc extracted ran configure and make bootstrap, i'm not sure how much i've done or if it's screwed up at all, i'm new to linux(a years experience off and on) and i seriously feel like i'm in the dark.

I'm not too familiar with DSL. The best option I think would be to reinstall gcc from the install media.

the installation media if a 50 mb cd, i did a frugal install(wget the iso, mount and cp the files to a partition) and I'm not sure but I don't think that it comes with gcc, i installed gcc1.dsl(3.3.4) package.

Also I reran the make bootstrap and 48 hours laterit tells me:

make[1]: *** [stage3_build] Segment fault
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/dsl/gcc-build/gcc'
make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2

what does this mean?
