Gcc-3.4.4
12/01/2018 9:30
I am trying to compile gcc-3.4.4 with gcc-2.95 on an old RH 7.0.

With a i686. These are the errors I get if they make sense.

***[insn-attrtab.o] Error 1***[All Gcc]What is going on here? Bill

If you're ready for the tedium, get version 3 sources, bootstrapit with the 2.95, and use ther version 3 for the newest one. But,please check the run-time libraries and binutils, too. By far,the most difficult to change is the C library, libc, as it's beingused by all the running programs.

IMHO, an easier way would be to copy your private files to a safeplace and install a modern distribution from scratch - for anythingas old as RH 7, you'd have to replace everything anyway.

12/01/2018 9:30 - On Tue, 13 Dec 2005, Tauno Voipio murmured woefully: You certainly should be able to. GCC should be bootstrappable with anyANSI C compiler (GCC 3 and below were even more permissive, butthankfully we were able to ditch that when we dropped support for thehideous ancient HP-UX bundled C compiler.) You cannot use a lone `make' to build *any* version of GCC exceptfor the exact version you're running. It's `make bootstrap' forbootstrapping new releases.

There should be no need for glibc upgrades unless you're stuck on libc5.

There may very well be a need for a binutils upgrade.

It is tricky, yes, but much of that trickiness is because manyapparently functioning config options don't work, the options you needare undocumented, and asking about them anywhere near the glibc listsleads to your being insulted by the glibc maintainer. :/ Again, without the actual error received when building GCC, we're stuckand can't help.

7.0.

No.

I guess it's 4.0 something. The lastest from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc Igot it from the lastest stable build.

12/01/2018 9:30 - On Mon, 12 Dec 2005, Bill Cunningham whispered secretively: It's hard to believe that the last line was emitted by make: it is in noneof the formats that make can output.

Firstly, though, it looks like you built with `make'. This is wrong: youshould use `make bootstrap'.

If you're making that error it's likely you haven't read any of the GCCinstallation docs at <http://gcc.gnu.org/install/>. Read them first.

Not reading them will almost certainly lead to a screwed up build.

That's interesting, as 4.1.1 does not yet exist (and even the release of4.1 is months away). You didn't believe that idiotic slashdot post thatsaid that GCC 4.1 had been released when it hadn't, did you? If you'retrying to bootstrap a snapshot, well, you're pretty much on your own: I hope you like debugging compilers because that's what the snapshotsare for :) If you're actually building some released GCC, you need to post a fewmore lines than that. All that the lines you've posted say is that makeis exiting becausf of an error: it doesn't say what the error *was*.

We also need at least the configure line you used, and preferably theoutput of config.guess too (although I can assume it's i686-pc-linux-gnuin this case). Oh, and we also need the actual version of GCC you'retrying to build; making it a version that exists is a good start :)

Oh I'm trying to compile 4.1.1 Sorry.
