Successful Build Report for GCC 3.2.3


Here is a report of a(nother) successful build of GCC 3.2.3 on a RedHat 7.2 system.

[Report starts here.]

Basic information:-


'gcc -v' (actual command was 'gcc-3.2 -v'):
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.2.3/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.2.3/configure --program-suffix=-3.2
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2.3

Languages: all languages in the full distribution.

Linux information:-

OS Distribution: RedHat 7.2 (Enigma), kept up to date with RedHat's Update Agent, and up to date as of 1 July 2003.

Linux kernel version ('uname -a'):
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.20-18.7custom-olympus-1 #2 Tue Jul 1 18:08:35 BST 2003 i686 unknown

glibc version ('rpm -q glibc'):

Additional information:-

This was a build of the full GCC 3.2.3 release, which was a full GCC 3.2 release patched up to GCC 3.2.3.

The '--program-suffix=-3.2' configure option was used to avoid name clashes with RedHat 7.2's EGCS.

The kernel is built from RedHat's kernel-source-2.4.20-18.7 RPM package, which came through their Update Agent as an update. The configuration is customised to suit my particular system, but is otherwise a normal RedHat Linux kernel.

[Report ends here.]

A possible omission in my report is whether or not anything extra needed to be done for the system's runtime linker to know where to find GCC 3.2.3's shared libraries. This is because I'd previously built and installed GCC 3.2 (which I manually uninstalled prior to this new installation). I think I had to do something back then (possibly adding a line to /etc/, or possibly just running ldconfig), but I can't remember for sure.

Anyway, a simple, 'Hello, world!' program works, so all seems well so far!

And thank you for providing the world with a free, good C++ compiler!
