Can someone tell me where to find a gpc that works with redhat 5.1 and help me set it up?  (I found a file  gpc-2.0-1.i386.rpm and it says ld: cannot open crtbegin.o: the file doesn't exist. I don't like to compile gpc by my self.

> libc-devel conflicts with glibc-devel
install glibc-devel in a separate directory (for example /usr/local/glib) and use environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH when calling gpc

Sometimes you just need a Quick Start on a topic in order to begin using it.. this is just what you need to know to get up and running with Docker!

I'm noted used to rpm, but it should be possible to extract the files from the package without installing at the presetted place.
Probably  rpm --root /you/dir   is what you need.
    man rpm rpm2cpio
for detatils.

1. man rpm
2. rpm --root /your/dir/where/to/install/files file.rpm


I'm not shure about 2. 'cause I only have a old rpm distribution.

You should not install libc-devel if you have glibc-devel.  If the gpc package you are using requires libc-devel, you need to compile a newer version, perhaps from the SRPM.

ahoffmann. Yes...It was youre idea that helped me out. If you mark the question as answerd I'll grade it. Just one question. When I treid to put the crt files abowe in /usr/lib/libc-devel and added it to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH It doesn't worked. But it works when I copied the files to /usr/lib. Do you know why???

No, not exactly. Some Linux distributions also know of

   LD_AOUT_LIBRARY_PATH

Did rpm start a compiler or linker?
