Description Dave 2004-01-31 17:39:09 EST
Description of problem:

It appears that support for the -m32 switch is not available for the
GCC suite in current the FC 1 x86_64 (test1) installation. 

IMHO, this is important (and should probably be installed by default
when the "Development Tools" selection is made during installation)
because there is probably going to be a lot of non-x86_64 compatible
i386 source code to build for a long time to come ;).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Try compiling any C/C++ source code with the -m32 switch on FC1 x86_64

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Strange ... it worked fine for me (gcc 3.3.2-6) doing a simple "hello"
c program.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-02-13 10:37:04 EST
Do you have glibc-2.3.*.i686.rpm and glibc-devel-2.3.*.i386.rpm installed?
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-13 11:12:00 EST
If it is the lack of glibc-devel...i386.rpm, then this should be
against distribution as glibc-devel (i386) is not part of the
"standard" set of packages.
Comment 4 Dave 2004-02-17 14:36:26 EST
# rpm -qa | grep glibc

when I compile a simple Hello World with -m32, I get the following:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot open crt1.o: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

crt1.o can only be found in /usr/lib64 on this machine.
Comment 5 Justin M. Forbes 2004-02-17 14:44:00 EST
glibc-devel 32bit should be included in the next release.  Sorry about
that one.
Comment 6 Dave 2004-02-17 17:24:02 EST
Thank you, and to all for all of your collective work on this and
forthcoming releases. All-in-all this release has been working very
nicely on this hardware.
Comment 7 Richard Henderson 2004-10-04 15:32:24 EDT
All the 32 bit stuff is present in FC2.
