as86/ld86?

Post by Chris Grego » Tue, 10 Aug 1999 04:00:00



I'm building a new linux system from source.  I thought I had everything I
need to rebuild the kernel (2.2.10) on my current system, but I don't seem
to have as86 or ld86.  I checked the tar of my old system and there was an
as86 but no man page for it.  I can't seem to find any source for this.

How do as86 and ld86 differ from as and ld?  I have the gnu versions of
these.  Where can I get source for current as86 and ld86?  Can I emulate the
functionality of these with options to gnu ld and as?

bin86 is the package name.

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.
