Description Alexander Skwar 2007-07-24 07:55:20 UTC
I'm trying to compile glibc:

[ebuild   R   ] sys-libs/glibc-2.6  USE="-build -debug -glibc-compat20 glibc-omitfp (-hardened*) (-multilib) nls -profile (-selinux)" 0 kB [0]

In config.log, I find:

you most likely have binutils-2.16.1 set as your default.  dont do that.

Hm. You were right. I still had 2.16.1 set as default. However, even after changing to 2.17, I get this error.

askwar@hetzner ~ $ eselect binutils list
Installed binutils for target i686-pc-linux-gnu
  [1]   2.16.1
  [2]   2.17 *

Do I need to do something after changing binutils with eselect (I logged out and back in to the system after I ran eselect)?
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2007-07-24 08:46:59 UTC
drop the USE=hardened as well

It is already disabled:

[ebuild   R   ] sys-libs/glibc-2.6  USE="-build -debug -glibc-compat20
glibc-omitfp (-hardened*) (-multilib) nls -profile (-selinux)" 0 kB [0]

Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2007-07-24 08:58:02 UTC
you'll need to drop it from make.conf and rebuild your gcc ... most likely it has munged up your toolchain

That did it. I upgraded GCC to 4.2 and I'm now able to compile glibc.

Thanks for your help!

Comment 10 Thomas Heinz 2007-10-15 19:15:24 UTC
Switching to i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.4.6-hardenednopie profile (see gcc-config -l) solves the problem.

However, it would be nice to be able to build glibc using hardened gcc. Is there a workaround for this or is it currently impossible to build a hardened glibc-2.6?
