GNU "as" and "ld" not supported for X 4.0 build?

Post by Minko Marko » Tue, 14 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Hello,

Did anyone compile X 4.0 successfully?

My compilation failed.  make World just froze
at one moment and stayed like that for hours.
I have RH 6.0.

In the build instructions, they say
        '2.6.2          Use of GNU BinUtils *as* and *ld*
         is not supported -- period! If you have them
         installed on your system, you must rename them
         or remove them for the duration of the R6.4 build'
Well, I renamed them, but the build would not
start at all. When I restored the names, the
build started and froze in several minutes.

What bin utils did you use? How can I get as & ld
that are not GNU's?

The same question for make. They advise "If you have replaced
your system's make with GNU make, we recommend you restore
the system make for the duration of your R6.4 build."

Thanks a lot,
Minko
