I am having troubles compiling the kernel after applying the SCTP patch
from www.openss7.org.

The question is: how do I tell “make” to use gcc 2.96 instead of gcc 3.3.2 ?

The FC1 kernel requires gcc 3.2.3 to compile. The gcc32 RPM has the compiler you need. Then builing d with CC=gcc32 should work.

I am not trying to compile the FC1 kernel, I am trying to compile a 2.4.22 kernel (from kernel.org) patched with the SCTP patch from openss7.org.

However, I have installed gcc32 RPM and tried building with CC=gcc32 as suggested. No luck, I get the same error. According to the patch maintainer I should be able to successfully compile with gcc 2.96. How do I do that? Well that's may 1.000.000.€ question!

What you are looking for is 'compat-gcc' which is probably already installed
on your FC1 box - and use it with 'make CC=gcc296'

[asterix]: rpm -qf /usr/bin/gcc296 compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.118
[asterix]: cat /etc/fedora-release Fedora Core release 1 (Yarrow)


Been there, done that. A small quote from my original mail:

This are the things that I have tried:

1.Before compilation I did:
#export CC
#export CXX
Then I followed the normal kernel compilation procedure but this did not helped.

2.I've tried passing CC=gcc296 to make, like “make CC=gcc296 bzImage” instead of “make bzImage”. No luck.

3.This one is inspired from an Oracle Application Server installation on Fedora Core 1. Basically I have renamed gcc and g++ to gcc332 and g++332 and made symbolic links to gcc296 and g++296
#mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc332
#mv /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++332
#ln -s /usr/bin/gcc296 /usr/bin/gcc
#ln -s /usr/bin/g++296 /usr/bin/g++
Then a normal kernel compilation. But this does not help either.

Ideas anyone?
