Description Karl Larsen 1999-11-20 00:29:36 UTC
After I loaded the g77 rpm from the version 6.1 cheapbytes cd-rom neither
of the cross compilers work. The error message is the same with both and
involves a directory /usr/src/ba/.... which does not exist on my computer.
If needed I can send you the exact error message but not here.

This is a bug in the egcs package which is incorrectly including links
into the Red Hat build dir.

Comment 3 Jim Kingdon 1999-12-23 20:00:59 UTC
The fact that /usr/src/bs is mentioned probably is a red herring (that is,
I think it only appears in the error message; I don't think anything is
looking for a file there).  Now, as for the actual problem.  Off the top
of my head it looks like something strange is going on which is causing
the first character in MAIN__ and main to be omitted.  Can you offer any
more details about how to make this problem happen?  I've enclosed a
simple test of g77 which worked for me.

One nit: as far as I know, there is no cross compiler involved here
(that is, the "g77" which we ship is a native compiler - running on
a x86 and producing x86 code - whereas a cross compiler might
run on an x86 and produce code for, say, a PowerPC).

[kingdon@test114 6905]$ g77 -g foo.f
[kingdon@test114 6905]$ ./a.out
 Hello, world
[kingdon@test114 6905]$ cat foo.f
      PRINT *,'Hello, world'
[kingdon@test114 6905]$
