Missing libgcc_s.so.1 library

Hi there again,

After installing rar-3.3.0 I discovered the fact that I don't have the libgcc present in my Coredistro+BLFS box.

"rar: error while loading shared libraries: libgcc_s.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

After searching the net and rpmfind.net I learned that there's an RPM available for RedHat systems, but I can't find a source tarball anywhere. Or must I recompile GCC 3.2.0?

Thanx in advance, Harold.

You can consult the BLFS Mailing List.

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/mail.html

First check and make sure that you do have libgcc_s.so.1.

cd /
find|grep libgcc_s.so.1

This might take a little while.

You should find it under /lib or /usr/lib /usr/local/lib depending on your core distro.  I recommend LFS. ;-)  In which case it'd be /usr/lib.

If you don't have it....recomplie GCC.  The version of your choice.

I'll bet that rar is looking in /usr/local/lib so if you do have libgcc_s.so.1, you'd be able to handle this by passing to configure the location of you libdir when you configure rar.

Hope this helps.
