Slackware libc-4.4.4 package available

Slackware libc-4.4.4 package available

Post by Patrick J. Volkerdi » Tue, 12 Apr 1994 11:11:43

To help out some MUDers who couldn't compile their MUD driver under the
new libs/compilers, I put togther a package to safely downgrade Slackware
1.1.2 or 1.2.0 to use libc-4.4.4 and GNU gcc/g++ 2.4.5. It works well, and
although I plan to stick with the new libraries and compilers, I imagine
there might be other people out there who'd like this so I've put it up for

It can be found on in /pub/linux/slackware/downgrad. There
are 3 disks in all. The first two downgrade the compilers and libraries,
and the third (optional) disk contains the GNU Objective-C 2.4.5 compiler
and the extra profiling/debugging libraries for libc-4.4.4.

Have fun,

1. Compiling libc-4.4.4: what's mkimage?

I finally decided to upgrade my libc to 4.4.4, but I couldn't find a binary on
sunsite or tsx-11 (are they around anywhere?), so I thought ok, I'll just
compile it.... and it dies trying to find "mkimage" when I try to build a
shared version (make SHARED=true). I have no idea what this is, I just know I
don't have it! And it doesn't seem to be on sunsite or tsx-11. Make expects it
to be in /usr/dll/bin/mkimage, but I don't have /usr/dll (SLS 1.03). And
again, I couldn't find anything like "dll" at the standard sites.

So could someone (in decreasing order of preference):
   i) point me at a binary for 4.4.4;
  ii) show me where I find mkimage; or
 iii) show me DLL

(I have 1.3 installed.)
