Topic: How to make gcc use GNU ld?
Replies: 4

AFAIK, you have to build gcc with --with-gnu-ld and --with-ld=<path to your gnu ld> to make this work. Never needed this, though, but for GNU as this works fine. If you want to rewrite the makefiles, it depends, as always. Just search for lines with -L, -l or ${CC} -o <something that looks like an e...

actual passwords are usually stored in /etc/shadow, I'm not sure what happens if you delete the :X: marker from /etc/passwd. I think as root you can use the passwd program to change the password to an emtpy one.

Xming as well: http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Xming Unlike Cygwin/X you just install an X-server and don't need any of the cygwin stuff. Who'd want to miss that stuff on a windows machine?

You could also try OpenVMS, even though it's not free, either, it's pretty cool - definately something quite different.

Do you have your language options set to something with ISO8859-15? Try setting it to Latin...-ISO8859-1, I also had that problem with my xterm fonts

I wonder if they were building with -j8 ?

I'd hate to think that make was running serial jobs rather than parallel on an 8-way system.


AFAIK, OO can't be built with parallel make, maybe it's changed for 2.0. That would be sweet - distcc, here I come ;-)

This is odd - I've just rebuilt bash from scratch with "--enable-dparen-arithmetic" specifically passed to configure, and yet still the above syntax doesn't work. This ist strange, since building from scratch works fine for me. Maybe some gccism active there, since I'm building with gcc. Can you ta...

Looks like bash was compiled without --enable-dparen-arithmetic, either because configure thought it not to be supported, or because of an explizit --disable... Release notes don't say anything about it, though...

If you're trying to start directly with C++ (which is better even if you are not into OOP, IMHO), you can also try the Eckel book "Thinking in C++", downloadable here: http://mindview.net/Books (Yup, it's free...) For C++ programming, GCC is fine. Although it's not very fast, I really like its close...

There was a not so favorable review in the current c't edition (german computer magazine), if anyone's interested, I can do a short summary of it. Mostly ran along the lines of 'There's no real reason to buy it, at least wait until the application bugs are ironed out'.
