Description roy 1999-02-27 17:39:14 UTC
I have a pretty freshly installed RedHat 5.2 machine. Wanted to bring egcs up to 1.1.x, so I grabbed the 1.1.1-7 rpm. The rpm had be upgrade cpp and binutils, both were no problem. Installing the new egcs was smooth, but when I try to run it:

roy@dt0f3n64 (1) % egcs -v
egcs: error in loading shared libraries
: undefined symbol: __register_frame_info

Is there some shared library that needs upgraded that wasn't
required by the rpm?

Comment 1 roy 1999-02-27 18:26:59 UTC
Okay, turns out 'nm' was broken too. The binutils .20 from Raw Hide 1.0 didn't want to work on my RH 5.2 box. I removed them, and installed a libc6 contrib RPM of binutils .19. 'nm' and company now work without error, but reinstalling egcs 1.1.1 still gives me:

[root@dt0f3n64 FTP]# egcs -v
egcs: error in loading shared libraries
: undefined symbol: __register_frame_info

  Maybe this isn't really a bug, just a side effect that I shouldn't be tryign to use any Raw Hide 1.0 RPMs...

Either rebuild egcs from the source rpm, or else you have to upgrage
to glibc-2.1...  You cannot use binary rpms from rawhide without
upgrading glibc, or rebuilding the source

*** Bug 1365 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

I installed egcs 1.1.1 by upgrading a regular Linux 5.2
system on a Pentium233. First I uninstalled the old egcs,
egcs-c++, egcs-g77 and egcs-objc installation. Then I
upgraded binutils to and installed
cpp- Then I installed the new egcs packages (basic,
c++, g77 and objc).

Trying to run any of those compilers results in the
following error message:

[stacey@ferrari ~/test]>cc test.c
cc: error in loading shared libraries
: undefined symbol: __register_frame_info
[stacey@ferrari ~/test]>

Hints on how to solve this problem are very much
appreciated. Also, does egcs1.1.1-c++ handle namespace and
using correctly?

I also installed libstdc++-2.9.0-7. I didn't have to uninstall
2.8.0-14 though.

If you want to use Raw Hide rpm's on Red Hat 5.2, you *must*
recompile from the src rpm. Raw Hide rpm's use glibc-2.1 which
is not present on Red Hat 5.2.
