How to compile latest sources using older gcc glibc versions and run them?


Hello friends,

I'm able to compile & run the latest "stockfish chess engine" sources using GCC 4.8 or later on Redhat EL 7.X. The latest source code (alongwith README) is available at https://github.com/mcostalba/Stockfish/tree/master

The commands to compile & build are: (goto "src" directory)

Code:
    gmake build ARCH=x86-64
    gmake install
However my requirement is to compile & run the same on Redhat EL 6.7 Server where the latest GCC version available is 4.4.7 (& glibc 2.12) as I can NOT upgrade GCC version without actually migrating to RHEL 7.X

Is it possible to modify the latest source to get it compliled & run on old version of gcc/glibc? if yes, would anyone be able to modify the sources (perhaps just Makefile?) for me please?

I tried changing "C ++ 11" to "C ++ 0x" in the "Makefile" but no luck. Please see the error I'm getting when I try to compile latest SF source with GCC 4.4.7:

this is redhat
so you have a current and valid support contract

install the "developer toolset"
it is in the rhn repo

The git stockfish builds OK with g++ version 5.3.1 : 'devtoolset-4-gcc-c++'.
( I only installed devtoolset-4-gcc-c++ and itīs four dependencies {-4-gcc, -4-binutils, -4-runtime, -4-libstdc++-devel}.

My test, CentOS 6.8 - 64bits :
$ git clone https://github.com/official-stockfish/Stockfish.git
$ cd Stockfish/src/
$ scl enable devtoolset-4 bash
$ make build ARCH=x86-64
