cannot install gcc (as missing)

cannot install gcc (as missing)

Post by Robert Rosenba » Sun, 26 Mar 1995 23:50:10

I installed from the Slackware 'a' disks, and have a working system.
Now I wish to rebuild the kernel to support my hardware, so the first
step is to get the compiler (2.5.8) running.  I tried two ways:

1) from the slackware distribution.  This was terrible, because the
series of disks which have gcc also have a lot of other stuff I didn't
want, and there was no easy way to segregate everything before
downloading. To make matters worse, The installation did not even
work.  Compilation fails with the message
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec as: No such file or directory

2) I downloaded the prepackaged binary gcc from tsx-11.  This was more
convenient, but I still have the same problem: cannot exec as.

I tried looking through the distibution file lists, and could not find
"as" or "gas".  I have already installed binutils, and all the other
packages which slackware descibed as mandatory prerequisites for gcc.

What's wrong with this picture?

1. Cannot install sbpcd module - cannot install linux:(

I am really in a bind here.  After an agonizing week of waiting, my new
debian CD showed up and I got to work installing.  Everything went
smoothly untill I went to install the kernel modules.  I have a 'reveal'
cd rom drive (possibly made by panasonic), that connects to the SC400
Reveal 4R sound card.  

I tried to install the sbpcd module for the kernel during the install,
but after taking 5 minutes or so to test a variety of addresses and names
(SoundBlaster, Lasersomethingorother, etc), it said that the installation
failed.  It seemed to get something at 0x230 SoundBlaster (the busy light
on the drive went on) but after spending a bit of time there, it just

I took those parameters and tried to feed them in manually doing:
append "sbpcd=0x230,SoundBlaster"
but it doesnt do anything.  I read the CDROM howto, and that was the only
advice I could glean from it.

As you may have gathered, I am really at a loss here, and would be most
grateful for any help offered.
