Successful Build Report for GCC 4.0.0 C and C++


Here is a report of a successful build of GCC 4.0.0's C and C++
compilers on a RedHat 9 system.

[Report starts here.]

Basic information:-


'gcc -v' (actual command was 'gcc-4 -v'):
Using built-in specs.
Target: i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configured with: ../gcc-4.0.0/configure --program-suffix=-4
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.0.0

Full distribution downloaded, but only C and C++ languages selected
during configuration.

Linux information:-

OS Distribution: Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)

Linux kernel version ('uname -a'):
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.20-31.9custom-olympus-1 #2 Tue Nov 30
22:46:13 GMT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

glibc version ('rpm -q glibc'):

Additional information:-

*  After 'make install', I also had to carry out the following,
additional steps:

1. add the line '/usr/local/lib' to the end of '/etc/';

2. run 'ldconfig' as root.

Without performing those final steps, C++ executables wouldn't run, as
there were shared libraries that couldn't be found.

* Made with 'make bootstrap-lean'.

*  The '--program-suffix=-4' configure option was used to avoid name
clashes with RedHat 9's GCC.

*  The kernel is built from RedHat's kernel-source-2.4.20-31.9 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.]

Thanks again for providing the world with a Free, good C++ compiler!
