RedHat 8.0, Binutils, NVIDIA Installer and me..
OK so I'm a total Linux dunderhead.
I tried to install the new Nvidia drivers, and the installer told me I needed Binutils. So I downloaded them.
Extracted the files, went into the Binutils-2.12/Binutils directory (as par the instructions in the Readme in the Binutils-2.12 directory) and cracked open the README. To install, it told me to do this
make install # copies the programs files into /usr/local/bin
# by default.
So I try doing ./configure in the Binutils-2.12 directory. I get this
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
Created "Makefile" in /binutils-2.12 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 7: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.
I have a clever idea and I tried ./configure in Binutils-2.12/Binutils and get this error at the bottom instead
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
I'm really getting frustrated here. I'm trying the best I can to read all of the instructions and do what sounds right, but sometimes, it's cryptic to say the least and not that helpful to the novice. Any advice, ideas, or spoon-feeding anybody could deliver would be much appreciated!!!!
i love to build my own distro...
and use LFS.
maybe this link helps ;)
forgot to mention: if you use RH you should probably go to their download-site and fetch a new rpm containing binutils. that would install it in the correct place for you.
Something finally worked for me!!!!
Appreciate it man. When I looked on RedHat's website for binutils the first time, it told me that I needed to buy entitelments to get it. I just went back, looked, and voila!
Installed it, installed the drivers, and everything still works!!!
Thanks again. If you're ever in Destin, Florida I'll buy you a round :D
Can you link me to the rpm file? I'm having the same problem except I can't even find an rpm file with binutils in it.
try rpmseek... and pick the appropriate rpm:
Ooooo man, you just stopped my 24-hours of hell. Thanx a bunch Cheers :beer:
