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

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?
