GCC errors after a failed upgrade


Hi,

I tried upgrading my Fedora 9 server to Fedora 10 and ran into some problems. The system was left still usable and still bootable, but there were a number of Fedora 10 rpms I needed to clear out. I thought I had removed everything and gotten back to normal, but I've found now that GCC (specifically, AS) isn't working.

For example:
gcc -c test.c
as: error while loading shared libraries: libbfd-2.18.50.0.9-7.fc10.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have libbfd installed on my system, but it isn't the version mentioned. The one I have is /usr/lib64/libbfd-2.18.50.0.6-6.fc9.so from binutils-2.18.50.0.6-6.fc9.x86_64.

I'm sure the fc10 version is gone from the system, and ldconfig is reporting all the correct libraries, but I still can't get rid of this error. Is there another system library cache that I should be cleaning?

Well, I'm not sure I know what the problem was, but I fixed it. I grabbed binutils-2.18.50.0.6-6.fc9.x86_64.rpm from rpmfind.net and ran "rpm Uvh --force binutils-2.18.50.0.6-6.fc9.x86_64.rpm" and the problem went away.

Thanks for posting the solution...
