Re: gcc question

>Ok guys I am going crazy.

I'd like to tell you something:

there are three recent GCC versions: GCC 2.7.2 and, both done by
Frank Naumann. Then there's GCC done by Christian.

The difference: Frank did the GCC as native MiNT compiler, with LFN, with
normal (libc.a) lib names etc. Chris, OTOH, did his GCC so it can run under
TOS (8+3 filenames, c.olb libraries, no chmod etc) and also under MiNT.
That's why it's perhaps hard to get working smoothly under MiNT...

If you want to get clean MiNT compiler, get the 2.7.2 or

as for the /usr/local stuff, it was proposed by GNU or Linux SFS, I'm not
sure, since GCC 2.6.3

simply delete all gcc related files from /usr/bin and then you don't have to
link local/bin anywhere. Alternatively, put /usr/local in front of /usr in
your PATH

I *guess* it's a configuration file which was used for building that
compiler. I think that because I tried to edit it but nothing changed

it's a TOS versus MiNT - see above
