Hi,

nice to meet you!

Please check if there is a link in /usr/local/lib or /usr/lib named libgcc_s.a pointing to
/opt/freeware/lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-ibm-aix[v.v.v.]/[v.v.v.]/libgcc_s.a
(v.v.v = version)

If the library is there, but the link is missing, create it.

Or don't you have libgcc installed at all (above path not present)?

If so, download it from here (choose according to your AIX version) and install -

Hello woolmilkporc and thank you for your help always.

I have libgcc installed.  I have ligcc_s.a in /opt/freeware/lib/gcc/powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0/4.2.4/libgcc_s.a.  But, I do not have libgcc_s.a in /usr/local/apache2/lib.  Please tell what my next stop should be? Thanks

libgcc is somewhat 'universal' and thus needs to go to /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib, not /usr/local/apache2...

Did you check /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib ?

If it's misssing in those paths too, issue

ln -s /opt/freeware/lib/gcc/powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0/4.2.4/libgcc_s.a  /usr/lib/libgcc_s.a
