GCC compiler Ld fatal error

Hi all

I'm trying to install sudo. When I first ran the sudo configure script it errored saying that I didn't have a C compiler. I have since installed the GCC 3.4.6 package for sol8 from sun freeware.

Doing that resolved the no C complier found error. I was then getting an error saying "gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `as': No such file or directory"

I installed GNU binutils and this solved the "as" problem. Now when I run the sudo configure script I'm getting the following error:

configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

when I look in the config.log file I see the following:

ld: fatal: file values-Xa.o: open failed: No such file or directory
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to a.out

I can see the following in the config.log file which I don't think is helping

Configured with: ../configure --with-as=/usr/ccs/bin/as --with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld --enable-shared --enable-languages=c,c++,f77

my "as" is in usr/local/bin (which is in my PATH) but if I do a whereis ld is see the following:

ld: /usr/ccs/bin/ld /usr/lib/ld /usr/lib/ /usr/ucb/ld /usr/local/bin/ld

Any help on why I'm getting that ld error would be greatly appreciated. Could it be some kind of conflict as I seem to have multiple occurences of ld?

Many Thanks!!!

Hi all,

I've worked it out, this was happening becuase the SUNWarc package was missing. I hope that helps somebody out if they come across the same problem.

Test Your Knowledge in Computers #268
Difficulty: Easy
In 1936, Turing published his paper 'On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem'. In this paper, Turing reformulated Kurt Godel's 1931 results on the limits of proof and computation, replacing Godel's universal arithmetic-based formal language with the formal and simple hypothetical devices that became known as Turing machines.
