crt1.o / glibc-devel


I just installed Slackware 9.0 on an old laptop. I tried to keep it small but I need gcc C and Ada95 compilers. Whenever trying to compile simple things I always get an error: can't open crt1.o, no such file or dir. Now some kind soul advised me to install the glibc-devel-package, which I cannot find on any Slackware-server (or cd). Any ideas? Which Slackware-package is crt1.0 part of?

Thanks in advance,

Well, Slackware makes the glibc package contain both the normal files and the -devel files, so you have them installed.

Unfortunatly, some programs still wont recognize them, and I have had similar problems.

Im not sure if thats where the crt1.0 file actually is though.

But how did you solve the problems ?

I still didn't manage to compile even hello world - but I don't want to give up Slackware...

Yes, even this simple program gens the crt1.o error:

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
printf("Hello world");
return 0;

additionally, stdio.h gens all kinds of errors, don't know why,...
