GCC is not working in the latest upgrade, at least on the X1000.

gcc not found.

It looks like gcc-9 was trying to install, but is not ready yet and screwed-up the links. I have Fienix on another drive and checked the repositories today and gcc-9 has been removed. I will let you know if further problems arise.

Hi Mechanic,

I have found gcc-8 in /usr/bin/.

/usr/bin/gcc-8 --version

Code: Select all

gcc-8 (Debian 8.3.0-22) 8.3.0

Hmm....My /usr/bin is different

The link target there is 'powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc-7', and gcc-7 or 8 or 9 is located in /usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-linux-gnu/7

I re-installed Fienix to make sure any of my attempts at changing things were gone. I have used Fienix to build kernels a few months ago, but having problems now.
This is what I have on this fresh Fienix.

fienix@Fienix:~/548/linux-5.4-rc8$ ls -l /usr/bin/gcc-8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Sep 9 11:28 /usr/bin/gcc-8 -> powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc-8
fienix@Fienix:~/548/linux-5.4-rc8$ make menuconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
/bin/sh: 1: gcc: not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/Makefile.host:107: scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 127
make: *** [Makefile:500: scripts_basic] Error 2

Help :?

You need the symbolic link /usr/bin/gcc to the real powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc-8.

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/bin/powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc-8 /usr/bin/gcc

That is what I did yesterday.....Today it worked????????? I probably screwed something up, can't keep my fingers out of the machinery.

Also, while playing around;
Kernel 4.19 works on a fresh install but not after a full upgrade. (Just FYI.)
I did notice that 5.3 'seemed' to work generally slower when clicking around on stuff and activating apps.
At this time, on the fresh install, I'm using your zImage 5.4(rc8) kernel with no problems so far.

Thank You very much.
