Where do as86 and ld86 come from?

Where do as86 and ld86 come from?

Post by Mike Dowli » Thu, 25 Feb 1999 04:00:00



Both these binaries are required to build the kernel, and both on my system
are very old.  I would like to re-compile them, but I don't know what source
package to look for.

Any help is much appreciated,

Cheers,

You should get bin86-0.4.tar.gz which is available for example at
ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/packages/GCC/.

1. as86/ld86 problems compiling 1.3.35 kernel

As always, I'm afraid I may be posting a question that's been answered
a billion times, so please bear with me if that's the case.

I'm attempting to compile the 1.3.35 kernel, which I've done successfully
before.  Of course, that was before I updated my system to be ELF compatible.
In so doing, I upgraded to gcc-2.7.0 and binutils-2.5.2l.17.  Now when I try
to compile the kernel, as86 complains that it doesn't know the -0 option.
This occurs near the end of the process, in arch/i386/boot.

Should I just go back to an older version of as86 (and ld86)?  Or is there
something else I'm missing here?

Thanks in advance for any help.
