    Question crt1.o problems (while ./configure)


    I am quite a newbie in Linux. Two days ago I just installed Slackware 11. Before I had some practice with unix feeBSD.

    So, a problem:

    I am trying to install squid 2.6, but.... configuring is unsuccessful with:

    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
    checking for gcc... gcc
    checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
    See `config.log' for more details.

    ok... config.log so config.log:
    (only as I think the main lines)

    configure:2336: checking for C compiler default output file name
    configure:2339: gcc -g conftest.c >&5
    /usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/3.4.6/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: crt1.o: No such file: No such file or directory
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    configure:2342: $? = 1

    can not open crt1.o? I tried to find it anywhere else in my disks.... no luck. I have no crt1.o at all.

    as I understand it should be in /usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/3.4.6 (because crtbegin.o for example sits there)

    so a question: could I simply place crt1.o to this location? If Yes: how to download it, or could I get it from Slackware installation CDs?


    should I reinstall any library utilities (glibc binutils or any like that)? or maebye same gcc must be reinstalled?

    and one more thing... how to reinstall? apt-get is not working in slackware? or simply i do not know how to use it?... If I would download tar or smth like that.... will it install without configuring? Or maebye is there a possibility to install missing utilities out of slackware CD? (but only to select packages which I need).

    So, thanks for helping in advance

    try for squid package.

    apt-get is in debian.

    swaret / slapt-get & slapt-gui (gui for slapt-get) / gslapt-get are package managers.

    i think you're missing your binutils or glibc-solibs, just install the pkgs

    squid is available as a package too, so no compiling

    I found that I really did not selected to install these library files. Now everything is ok. Thanks anyway.
