GCC not working after upgrade [Solved]

Postby necrophcodr » Tue Feb 06, 2018 21:24

Recently I've upgraded my Sabayon system, and in messing about with some things eventually my GCC installation (or binutils) broke.

The problem would manifest even by compiling a hello world C file, such as

Code: Select all
int main() { return 0; }


Which when compiled would error:

Code: Select all
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/6.4.0/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/6.4.0/../../../../lib64/Scrt1.o: unrecognized relocation (0x2a) in section `.text'


After trying a lot of things out, including emerging binaries from a different Gentoo system, I finally reverted, and got the problem solved thanks to optiz0r (for solving my issue) and Ryuno-Ki[m] (for letting me know about optiz0rs reply when I had logged off).

The solution in my case
Code: Select all
sudo binutils-config x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-2.29.1


Very simple! The solution to your problem may differ, but running

Code: Select all
sudo binutils-config -l


may reveal the version you can enter instead of the version I used.

Thanks! It's been a few years since I've really posted in forums like this. I've changed it to fit now.

That's how serious the problem is, and how easy it is solved. Although in my case Binutils had first to be removed (previous version) with the corresponding parameter, then installed and selected. Thank you very much necrophcodr!
