Installing gcc.4.2.2


HI there ,

I've been trying to install gcc 4.2.2 from the sources.
did download the tarballs and compilation went without any complications but when i try to compile something i get a hell load of errors complaining about missing headers , libs and everything else associated with it .

I'm suspecting that some enviroment variables have to be setup but i've no clue which one or what to fill them with.

so your help is required here...again.


and thanks.

You need to be more specific, and even better of if you provide listing of the errors.

I've cut the rest because it's really long and doesn't fit in a post.

As I said before it's complaining about missing headers but i don't know why , since i've got all the tarballs and followed all the steps on gcc.gnu.org

so what should i do more?

These files should be part of your Linux distribution, and not the 'gcc' tarball.
You might want to check if these files are there by going to /usr/src directory, and trying to find lets say "unistd.h". One way of doing it:
Code:
find . -type f -name "unistd.h"

One more thing, check if there is a '[Rr]eadme' file in the tarball which would tell you if you need to tweak makefile. Meanwhile, you might want to consider installing binary rpm for gcc4.2.2 as a fallback, while you're figuring out compilation problems.

Aha , now that takes us a step closer to the problem.
the point is that , I'm using a stripped linux version not a major distro , it's basically a boot up cd called sysrescuecd .

btw , I've found unistd.h but only at a non-standard path , so what should i do know to tell gcc about the new headers?

or even better where can i get those headers from so that i can compile anyuthing with gcc regardless of the linux flavor?

I am not sure about your distribution, 'sysrescurecd' - sounds like a live CD. I never tried doing anything with those except booting up. But it should have kernel sources, and if it is, then they are located in standard directories somewhere in /usr/src/.../.../.. . It is where your makefile will be looking for them. You might try to modify makefile, for that you need to find a variable which holds include paths, I can't tell exact name, but most likely it will include "INC" as part of the name, and look close to: LINUXINCLUDE = -Iinclude. And then you need to add a line below:
LINUXINCLUDE += -Iyour-non-standard-path.
