Description

Since many commercial and precompiled packages depend on gcc2 libs, and the question is asked n number of times on the lists, it would be better if the book included a section on installation of gcc2 libs. I use the following that compiles the complete gcc-2.95.3 and then copies the libs, but there may be a shorter way to do it (never bothered to research it since it is only done once):

../gcc-2.95.3/configure --prefix=/var/tmp/gcc --enable-shared \

--enable-languages=c++ --enable-threads=posix &&

make && make install && mv /var/tmp/gcc/lib/*.so* /usr/lib && ln -sf libstdc++-libc6.3-2.so.3 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 && ln -sf libstdc++-libc6.3-2.so.3 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 && ldconfig

Another option is to install it in a different directory e.g. /usr/lib/gcc2-compat/ and ask the users to add the directory to LD_LIBRARY_PATH for apps that need gcc2 libs.
