R-beta: Re: dse+redhat 4.2 problem
16 Mar 1998 09:30:25 -0600
There was an old problem with the g77 compiler under RedHat Linux and
under the pre-release versions of Debian-2.0 Linux giving compiler
errors. Paul Gilbert encountered it while compiling his dse library
for R. Dirk E. also encountered it in compiling octave for Debian-2.0.
Over the weekend a new version of the binutils programs was made
available for the Debian-2.0 system (just in time for the code
freeze). The problem seems to be solved on Debian-2.0 with these new
bash-2.01$ dpkg -s binutils
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Galen Hazelwood <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Conflicts: gas, elf-binutils
Description: The GNU assembler, linker and binary utilities.
The programs in this package are used to assemble, link and manipulate
binary and object files. They may be used in conjunction with a compiler
and various libraries to build programs for Linux.
These may be based on the egcs system rather than a stock gcc-2.8.
Galen has been creating a hybrid of gcc and egcs so the C++ compiler
from egcs can be used.
