1. Configuring Linux tools: i586-pc-linux-gnu or i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1 ?????
This problem is causing me many sleepless nights (well, metaphorically
speaking anyway). As I understand it, I should try and configure all of
my Linux tools for the same target so that they all look for each other
in the same directories etc. However, they don't always agree on what my
system IS - e.g. binutils claims that I have a i586-unknown-linux-gnu,
whereas gcc and libg++ default to i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1. And yes, I do
have glibc-2.0.5 installed in /usr/local but I am uncomfortable about it
being there because it stops me from compiling the kernel and anything
which includes the linux/*.h headers.(I understand that this is normal?)
I have currently forced the target to be i586-pc-linux-gnu where
possible, since if I want to actually compile anything I have to move
all of the glibc1 headers to where the compiler can't find them anyway.
The final binary seems to link against libc.5.so, so this seems OK. The
gcc-2.8.0 compiler works.
libg++-2.8.0 does NOT work. According to the READMEs, libg++ must be
compiled for the same target as gcc-2.8.0 or gcc will not see it. This
implies the i586-pc-linux-gnu target. Unfortunately the compiler bombs
out when building libg++ for this target and the egcs (which shares much
source code with gcc-2.8.0) FAQ says "use the default target instead" -
i.e. gnulibc1. Building for gnulibc1 does work, although it doesn't do
me any good because the compiler is ...-linux-gnu.
There HAS to be a way to sort this mess out. Do I have to totally
eradicate glibc from my system so that gcc and libg++ can correctly
identify it as -linux-gnu? If so, how can I install glibc? And if I do
install glibc then how can I compile a new kernel? Or maybe there's a
problem with my setup? Since I neither want nor need several compilers,
I told gcc to install to --prefix=/usr, and up til now it worked just
Any insights would be appreciated,
