I used 6.1.1 that has the patch. (<a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter05/binutils-pass1.html">http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter05/binutils-pass1.html</a>) This patched 2 files I think, I'm at work away from the machine so I can't check for sure until later.
<br><br>The normal make works fine and ld does compile and install. It's the secondary compile with LIB_PATH that breaks.<br><br>Thinking about this, that would seem a tad bit strange to me but I read ahead the note (<a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter05/adjusting.html">
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter05/adjusting.html</a>) and fiqured I could skip past this for now. I already know FC4 is quirky so I figured once I got a good tool chain I would be save.<br><br>The error repeats itself with the GCC compile which kinda of blows the theory of getting of good tools out of the water.
<br><br>I'll be happy to try and debug. The other option I was thinking of was to go ahead and bring bintools and gcc up to development. I'm not sure how likely that is to break evrything else though.<br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">
