Now, why didn't you mention that in your original post?

You would need to install a Linux package of gcc-3.2 --- if you're using the emulators/linux_base port, all of the standard linux stuff you have installed is based on RedHat 7.1, so grabbing a .rpm from one of the RedHat sites would probably be your best course of action. Make sure you add '--root /compat/linux --dbpath /var/lib/rpm --nodeps --replacepkgs --ignoreos --ignorearch' to the rpm command line. Make sure to get the '--root' path right, or you may trash the system gcc, which could be a very tricky thing to recover from. Of course, you're going off into uncharted territory here: no guarrantee that this will work correctly without severe hackery. Good luck. Cheers, Matthew PS. There's an alternative of using linux_base-debian, which provides much the same sort of facility as linux_base, but based on the Debian "woody" distribution and using .deb rather than .rpm files. If it doesn't work with .rpm's you could try .deb's, but I do rather doubt that will actually get you anywhere. -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK
