SLIP/PPP -->new kernel-->new compiler-->new make

Post by Perjan -The Nerd- Moo » Tue, 06 Sep 1994 03:38:23



Hello world!

I'm trying to install SLIP or PPP (made no choice yet, any tips?)
Therefore I needed a new kernel and tried to install 1.1.45.
To compile this I needed a new gcc version. I downloaded gcc 2.5.8, libc
4.5.26, binutils 1.9l.4 and tools 2.16.
I un-tar-ed them all and started to compile.
I now need gnu make 3.70 (in stead of 3.69) where can I find this?
I also have problems with libc.so.4, witch is linked to libc.so.4.4.4
It sais: desire minor version 514 and found 404
How do I solve this?
final question: Why isn't there a HOW-TO about these things?

I hope anyone can help me with this.

Greetings and thanx in advance,

Perjan Moors.

gcc2.5.8 was the last thing I added to my linuz installation. This was 1 week
after I installed everything else. I didn't have these problems. Did you go
to sunsite.unc.edu & get all 6 GNU (gcc2.5.8) disks? Then with the slackware
2.0 setup program you can add this package. That should fix you up.

You sound like a volunteer to me...

In the case that your network provider supplies a choice, I'd choose PPP.
It is more modern, handles line noise more satisfactorily by providing
local (to the modem line) error correction, and is somewhat easier and
more reliable to configure.

There are HOWTO's about these things. Not all of them are completed though.
You've obviously tried to upgrade from an old distribution and gotten caught
in a web of interdependencies. How would a HOWTO describe the situation you
are in ? Is it reasonable to expect some to write a HOWTO describing how to
upgrade from any configuration to any other configuration ? If so, then I

he is the Linux Documentation Project coordinator so that he is aware
there is a need for such information.

1. IDE CD -> New Kernel -> New Compiler (what next?)

Thanks for all the previous help.  Now a new problem arises.  In order for my
CD to work, i must install a new kernel.  my current kernel (1.2.3) obviously
doesnot support iso9660.  So i downloaded kernel 2.9 ,followed the read me, and
hit a wall.  It appears my gcc 2.6.4 is too old.  So i download gcc 2.8.1.  Now
I cant get the compiler to install correctly.  the read me supplied with the
compiler has limited info on installation.  What is the standard way to install
the gcc compiler.  Thanks in advance.
