Description of problem:
Hardware: Dual processor Compaq W6000 running RH 7.2
Installed gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release), compiled from tarball sources
obtained from Gnu web site.  Installation directory /usr/local/bin
Used this as default compiler

Upgraded to RH 8.0,from iso's and then installed all available rpm updates,
including glibc-2.3.2-4.80, and related rpms.

I now have a Redhat 8.0 system, running the stock mp kernel

which has two versions of gcc: 2.95.3 and 3.2, and with glibc 2.3.2.

when I try to build a C++ program, using the two compilers, it compiles fine
with gcc 2.95.3, but I get a bunch of unresolved symbols in the link step with
gcc 3.2. If I add 


to the link step, the symbols are resolved OK.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See Description

Actual Results:  linker error messages:  
new_main.o: In function `__tcf_0':
/usr/include/c++/3.2/iostream:62: undefined reference to
`std::ios_base::Init::~Init [in-charge]()'
new_main.o:/usr/include/c++/3.2/iostream:62: undefined reference to
encode_t.o: In function `__static_initialization_and_destruction_0':
/home/johnk/projects/ofdm/warp.h:14: undefined reference to `__gxx_personality_v0'

Expected Results:  No error messages from the link step

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2003-03-29 08:43:18 UTC
If you link with gcc driver, then you indeed have to supply -lstdc++
(or -lsupc++ if your program isn't using STL at all).
g++ driver is what should be used to link C++ programs and shared libraries.
