  1. Problem installing gnutools on 5.0.7 w/Maint Pack 5 (or, how to build gcc)

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to install gnutools-5.0.7Kj on a SCO 5.0.7 system with
    Maintenance Pack 5, and scoadmin is complaining that I can't install
    gnutools without "Maintenance pack 1 (or higher)". I'm no
    mathematician, but I'm pretty sure that 5 qualifies under "or higher".


    Any ideas what I can do to convince scoadmin that it's ok to install
    gnutools?

    For what it's worth, the goal is to get a working gcc, so if there are
    better ways than following the instructions provided in the gcc docs
    for releases that work on SCO (gcc 3.4.3 on 5.0.6), then please let me
    know. Something on the order of "download the pre-compiled version
    from foo.com" would be great.

    With respect to gcc, I did successfully compile 3.3.1, but when I test
    it, ld complains about missing the symbol "_fini" in crt1.o. I gave
    3.4.3 a shot, but the build dies when compiling pretty-print.c ("line
    270: error: invalid type combination").

    Thanks for any insight, directions, sympathy, ...

    -Dave H.

    Line 52 of the install script can be edited; but an easier fix is to
    first do:

    touch /tmp/gnutools.nocheck.

    Thanks, JP, that did the trick.

    Nice to know that you're still such a valuable resource, even after so
    many years and so many SCO versions!
