Problems compiling C-News with GCC 2.5.7/libc-4.5.8

Problems compiling C-News with GCC 2.5.7/libc-4.5.8

Post by Nick Simici » Mon, 10 Jan 1994 14:54:30

I recently installed gcc 2.5.7 and libc-4.5.8 from tsx-11 over a running
but somewhat older release of Slackware.  I then attempted to compile
C-news.  I noted that someone else ran into this message which waqs

gcc -O2 -I../include   histslash.o  ../libcnews.a  -o histslash
/usr/lib/ Definition of symbol __NEEDS_SHRLIB_libc_4
(multi\ply defined)
/usr/lib/ Definition of symbol __NEEDS_SHRLIB_libc_4
(multipl\y defined)
make: *** [histslash] Error 1
+ exit 1

I'm only posting this because I think I've found a solution and the
question has expired on my system so I can't email the originator.

I renamed /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib/ and
/usr/lib/libgcc.a to /usr/lib/libgcc.a.old without apparrent problems.
Once that was done, I had no problems compiling (or, for that matter,
running anything else.  I suspect that these files are artifacts of an
earlier release and no longer required.
