I'm sure this question's been asked before, but i've looked everywere for
a direct solution without any luck.
I've got a fresh install of Redhat 9 and what I'd like to do is downgrade
gcc 3.2.2 to 2.95.3
I downloaded gcc 2.95.3 and installed it into /usr/local/lib. That worked
I continued with the setup of my box and just when I thought I had
everything running, I ran into the following linking problem:
undefined reference to `__ctype_b'
undefined reference to `__ctype_tolower'
After some research, I determined that it was because gcc 2.95.3 was
compiled with glibc 2.3.2 (please tell me if this logic is wrong).
So I decided to install glibc 2.2.5. It installed fine, so I decided to
re-install gcc 2.95.3 to work against it. That was 3 hours ago.
I can't get gcc 2.95.3 or the original /usr/bin/gcc to work properly.
Someone, please tell me what the proper procedure is for installing gcc
2.95.3 and glibc 2.2.5 on a box that already has gcc 3.2.2 and glibc
Unfortunately, using the default gcc (and leaving well enough alone)
isn't an option.
Any help appreciated,
