Hello.

My gcc compile is failing because it can't find library libgcc. My problem is I don't know which library to install to fix this. I have tried all the ones I can think on my distribution disk, but so far no luck.

gcc -m32 -L /usr/local/java/lib -L /usr/lib -L /lib -ldl-2.11.1  -lpthread-2.11.1 jsvc-unix.o libservice.a -o ../../jsvc
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/libgcc.a when searching for -lgcc
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc

Note the error message: /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc

I expected that libgcc would be loaded by default because I have the compiler installed

>> -m32
See if -m64 helps instead of -m32

Hi Phoffric,

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I am required to have a 32 bit compile. 64 bit is not an option becasue of other software I integrate with. I'll need the 32 bit libraries.

I would have expected since I have a 32 bit compiler installed I would have libgcc as a default. I am specifying /lib and /usr/lib as paths and I believe those are the locations of the 32 bit libraries.

I did find these two libraries: How do I specify that gcc should use them?

/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
/lib/libgcc.so.1


Thanks,

Chris

As library paths, right? You could also use explicit paths in the gcc command (but that just indicates that something is awry with your installation).

Have you seen the ideas presented here:
   http://www.network-theory.co.uk/docs/gccintro/gccintro_25.html

and in Step 4 Making the library available at runtime:

This is what I found to be a solution

1) zypper remove gcc
2) zypper in gcc32-32bit
3) zypper in gcc

basically I removed gcc and replaced it with the 32 bit versin
