Red Hat / Fedora :: Installing Alternative (older) Gcc Version RHEL
Nov 9, 2010
I am installing the quake4SDK on RHEL , it needs gcc-3.3 , but I have gcc 4.1.How can I install an alternative gcc3.3, without getting rid of the newest one , and solely to get this program to compile ??? I know there is an "alternative" managing system , but don't know how it works.
I admit that I am a bit confused on how to proceed with this.I currently have an older version of Ubuntu (6 something) and windows vista and I have dual booting. I am trying to install 10.04 on top of the older Ubuntu and I want to keep the Windows partition. Last time I tried, I completely screwed up.I have multiple partitions now with a bunch of smaller ones that got created by mistake. I would like to re-size my partitions to have 1 main windows partition, 1 linux partition and 1 swap file partition. My HD is 160GB and I would ideally like to have the Ubuntu and Windows partitions roughly the same size.I included some screenshots of the install process and also a screenshot of my partitions.
I have HandBrake 0.9.4 installed from Slackbuilds.org, but a new version came out yesterday that I want to install, but it isn't up on slackbuilds yet. Can I install it from source without doing anything to the old install?
When I installed it from slackbuilds, the slackbuild script also installed all the external multimedia libraries that I need. If I use removepkg (or whatever the command is) to remove the old HandBrake before installing the new one, will that also remove the multimedia packages that were installed along with handbrake? They were all built into the same .tgz
On my work computer so I can't do anything with it right now anyway, so maybe a slackbuild will be up when I get home.
I have a Sun Fire X4450 running RHEL 5.3. Attached to this server via FC is a Sun StorageTek ST2540 that allows additional storage capacity. In order to administer the ST2540, a software application from Sun (CAM 6.6) has been installed. Part of the install process for this application also installs Java JDK1.6.0_12 (64-bit).
However as we use this hardware as a database server, our database software will not install properly as it requires an earlier version of Java JDK1.5.0_11 to be installed. When I try and install the older JDK rpm package, RHEL will not let me. How can I get both versions of Java installed?
I've got a MythTV 0.23 backend and I'm trying to get the frontend working on my Fedora box, but by default yum installs 0.24 which has a different database model and so won't work with a 0.23 backend. I've got the RPM for 0.23 but it has a bunch of dependencies so I need to track down the RPMS for those, too, so I was wondering if I can do this in yum? I've seen an old thread about installing a yum-allowdowngrade package but that doesn't seem to be available any more.
Is there a way to use the diff command between an older and a newer version of a file and only display the lines that have been added to the newer file and not the ones that have been removed without any of the explanation formatting, just the new lines. I'm trying to bypass the process of putting both files into a database and running an SQL "left join where old data is null" as I will need to do this on a regular basis.
Although I am new to Fedora/Linux I hope to contribute to the community once I'm on my feet with the OS.I am trying to update the graphics driver (Intel), so I downloaded the file, realized I needed to update libdrm, downloaded that, too, and am now on the step of installing libdrm 2.4.23.I am at the step of typing 'make install' on the command line, and get this error message:libtool: Version mismatch eror. This is libtool 2.2.6b Debian Debian-2.2.6b-2, but the definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.2.10. You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6b Debian-2.2.6b-2 and run autoconf again.It appears that I have a newer version of libtools than is needed. How do I recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from an older libtool version, specifically 2.2.6b Debian-2.2.6b-2? Or is the problem with LT_INIT?
I just had a hard drive failure on my mythtv box that I had been running F14 on. I reinstalled F14 and just got about everything up and running like normal again except that I upgraded the kernel by mistake when I was upgrading everything else to current levels. The problem is that I run a hauppauge pvr150 on this mythtv box, and the code for capturing on this card is broken on the latest kernel version. I have the kernel headers and development files installed for the newest kernel that I can't really use, but I didn't install the kernel headers for the older kernel before the upgrade. Now, I am looking for a way to forcefully install the older kernel development files so that I can compile my the proprietary nvidia drivers against it for my adapter. I downloaded the rpm files from the fedora 14 repository directly. Is there an option for rpm that I can use to force the installation?
Specifically, I want Clementine player 0.6, but the guy that installed Ubuntu on my laptop put natty narwhal alpha 1 on it (don't ask me why. I wanted maverick since its stable but he never really asked. The whole thing was kinda a surprise), and Clementine only offers downloads for Ubuntu distros up to maverick. So. Can I/is there a way I can install it anyway? Or am I forced to just use Banshee until the official Update comes out and Clementine is updated in....
We are setting up a new environment for a client by upgrading their O/S as well. These are database servers and are going to run Oracle on them. I have installed the RHEL5.4 O/s and all was well. I also setup all the required packages as per oracle documentation and still all worked fine. The dba then installed the following packages as he stated it was required, however this caused the gui dispay to be broken a X fails to start:
The current kernel version is: 2.6.18-164.el5PAE I tried to see if this package is on the Linux disks, however it could not be found and he thus downloaded these packages. Does anybody know about an alternative package set to replace these or alternatively an updated set specifically for RHEL 5.4 as I am unable to find any on the web.
When I boot up ubuntu 10.10, at first it looks fine, but after just a few minutes the color scheme will change to look like older versions of ubuntu (like 9.04). By this I mean that the top and bottom bar turn light grey instead of dark grey, and that icons and scroll bars in open windows look old.
Here is a screen shot of what it looks like. Keep in mind that this is in fact 10.10[URL]... Another interesting thing is that when I go to system->preferences->appearance->visual effects, none of the three options are checked (though compiz and emerald are still working fine). The weird thing, though, is that just opening the appearance window seems to temporarily solve the problem.
I have 4 partitions in my system, out of which two(sda1, sda2) have windows on them. I have installed RHEL 4 32 - bit on sda3 and after that , installed installed RHEL 64-bit on to a partition sda 5. Now i am unable to boot into RHEL 32-bit. The error i am getting is Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format.
Is an older version of Ubuntu or other Linux OS available that would work well in my older computer?
I have a computer that is about 11 years old that I would like to put to use. It is not the only computer at my home. I would just like to use it since I still have it. It will run Windows ME that came installed in it very well. Problem with that is that I am not able to locate virus and firewell software that will run on old versions such as ME.
An upgrade to XP is just to slow to live with. I loaded the latest Ubuntu 11.04 that works just fine other than it is even slower than is XP.
The computer is a tower type of desktop that has an 800 mhz Celeron processor with the maximum memory possible that is 512 kb if I recall correctly. I am connected to a 512 kbit DSL.
I think that what I would like to do is to install a Linux OS along side the Win ME and only go on line with the Linux program. Then I can still run a couple of programs that I cannot run with the Linux OS. I would kind of like to stay with Ubuntu since I have used it for a couple of years in a different computer and am use to it.
My favorite IM application, Pidgin,have been causing me some problems with it's new release (2.9.0).More specifically I can't see friends which are visible in normal versions of MSN or hotmail web interface, even though I have searched any options available thoroughly. Also some of my contacts can see me online but cannot message me.
Therefore, I would like to install an older version to find out whether these problems are version or application related. However the only available version is 2.9.0 and I would like to downgrade to an older version,let's say 2.6.0 but I have no idea on how to do that.
No matter which glibc I use, I get the error that I need a compiler that supports visibility. I'm using 4.4.5, so it can't be too old.What is the visibility for gnu, this is a compile for glibc.Any glibc fails for the same reason. I can't compile an older version of gcc, more errors. Is it possible to turn off the check for visibility?
my ubuntu version has changed from v.2.6.27-7 to 2.6.35.-- while i was trying to install my lxu800 modem.my modem was not intalled. this upgradation took place when i installed linux-image-2.6.27-7.deb files. now i want to get my older version of ubuntu. how can i do it.
I want to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 32-bit x86) on my Acer laptop? Is this possible? I looked on the compatibility list but it seems that I can only install this OS on a server machine? Is that true?
I am trying to install gcc from source, but wish to install to an alternative location, ie /opt/gcc/4.4.4.
I have done so but ran into the problem that the system libs in /usr/lib64 were being located before my libs in /opt/gcc/4.4.4/lib64.
So, I set --libdir=/usr/lib and reinstalled. The libs link in correctly, but now g++ cant find includes, for instance <complex>. I think I could set CPATH to point to the locations of these includes but that doesn't seem like it should be necessary.
So my question is, what is the correct way to install gcc alongside the system versions while allowing linkage to the right libs and location of the includes? I don't want to use prefixes or suffixes because the intel compiler looks at gcc -v to get clues as to how to compile stuff.
It should be noted that I have no internet connectivity on this machine, so building from source is my only option.
I have problem installing a program (GTNets) since it requires an older version of g++ (3.3), while the current version of g++ is 4.4 in my ubuntu installation (vers 9.10). Can anyone give me recommendations on how to solve this?
I guess that there should be able to install an older version of g++ in addition to the current g++. Furthermore, the current should be the default, while the older is an optional version.
I installed Ubuntu version 8.04 (Hardy) on my P4 3.4 GHz PC but it was so unstable with daily kernel crashes that I was forced to go back to XP. This year, I�m building a HTPC using an old but unused Abit AN-M2HD, a brand new Athlon 5600+ Brisbane CPU, new 2TB Seagate HD, new G.Skill 8 GB DDR2 PC8500 1066 RAM and a wireless keyboard.
The HTPC will be a server hub with my laptop and P4 still using XP. It will be used for surfing the web, playing games and maybe to record Blueray movies (is that even possible?). I will search the forums for how to make my HTPC the server hub but I�m posting here because I want to try Ubuntu again. I am torn between an older version 7.00 or 6.00 which matches the vintage of my hardware or a new version that can potentially be unstable again.
The upgrade instructions say you can use the upgrade manager to go from 10.4 to 10.10. I am currently running 9.10. Will this still work? Or do I have to go to 10.4 first? Or can I download the 10.10 alternate install iso and upgrade directly with that for both my Ubuntu and UbuntuStudio installations?
