Description dunwoody 1999-12-17 08:25:29 UTC
Installing cpp-2.95.2-2.i386.rpm on my system with the latest Rawhide
bits (including egcs-1.1.2-25.i386.rpm) causes cc to fail:

[guest@c130441-j hi]$ cc -o hi hi.c
cc: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp': No such file or directory
[guest@c130441-j hi]$

Uh, unless I'm missing something, egcs-1.1.2-25.i386.rpm is not part
of rawhide (ftp.redhat.com/rawhide).  You want either the egcs-1.1.2-25
family of packages or the gcc-2.95 family - not a mixture.

Comment 2 dunwoody 1999-12-27 19:24:59 UTC
sorry, my bad -- my automated scripts for updating my rawhide system only
update already-installed packages, so they failed to detect the transition
from egcs/egcs-c++ to gcc/gcc-c++.  Thanks for cluing me in.
