binutils-config


Hi,
I am running Openmandriva Lx.
I can't find binutils-config (find / -name binutils-config). Why? The package binutils is installed.
Can anyone help?

OpenMandriva Lx - <version> ? ?

But anyway, no ordinary "binutils-config" on any OS.

( Gentoo has a script `binutils-config´ :
"The binutils-config script allows you to switch between different
versions of binutils when you have installed multiple copies
(see USE=multislot). It also allows you to manage
multiple cross-compiling targets simultaneously." →
http://www.linuxhowtos.org/manpages/...ils-config.htm )

OK, OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0
( Actually, the command for deciding your version is :
$ cat /etc/*release* )

What is your purpose with "binutils-config" ? ?
Which application / job will require 'binutils-config' ?

Hi Knudfl,
I saw in the output with errors from my compilation of Linux the word "gold", and I know that "gold" is a linker in gcc. I saw somewhere that an earlier linker was - I think - "ldf", and I wanted to change the default linker from "gold" to "ldf". You could do that in "binutils-config"; but only in Gentoo. Do you know of another way, or is it without importance for my compilation error?

Hi knudfl,
A new kernel.
I have downloaded the latest kernel:

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git linux-2.6

and in /home/kirsten/linux-2.6 I have done:

yes '' | make oldconfig

after copying .config into /home/kirsten/linux-2.6 and then:

make

and that is where it goes down with an error msg that mentions "gold".

You have seen the error messages, and I hav'nt come any further.
