I'm having major problems upgrading and installing software on my Redhat
5.2 computer. Everything craps out when I try to compile it.
At first I was getting a missing "crt1.o" error, but I was able to find
all the crt* stuff (I wonder why it wasn't there to begin with).
Then, gcc started crapping out when it got a "-02" flag. As I
understand it, this is a very important and popular optimization flag,
so I don't know why that didn't work. I RPMed in a new gcc, and that
problem went away.
Now, ld doesn't work. It always says it can't find file "-lc". I guess
"-lc" is an important flag that ld is mistaking for the name of a file.
So, I tried installing egcs and making gcc point to it. ld does the
same thing. I tried reinstalling ld, but I can't find the binary
version and I can't compile it without a working version of ld.
These are the programs I'm trying to install:
Thank you for your time and help in this matter.
