GCC4.7.0 Linux installation headache
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Summary: Operating system: (Linux) Ubuntu 12.04 Downloaded the “gcc-4.7.0.tar.gz” and “gcc-4.6.3-4.7.0.diff.gz” files Unzipped the folders using the command terminal Problem For the past 5days I’ve been trying to install this compiler using the terminal since the latest version of gcc isn’t available in the software centre (4.6.3 is there instead). And I don’t want gcc 4.6.3 since it has inferior C++ 11 support which I really need for my dissertation project the next academic year. So far I’m stuck on stage 3 of the stages listed below according to the documentation. 1. Prerequisites 2. Downloading the source 3. Configuration 4. Building 5. Testing (the optional phase) 6. Final Install When triying to configure the files I've tried these commands (and they failed) mkdir var/gcc cd var/gcc usr@tubuntu:~/Downlaods/gcc-4.7.0$ configure [--with-pkgversion=version] [--target=target] //error received “configure: command not found ” I thought this was how configuration was done since the stallation document index.html stated so. So afterwards I decided to try other methods like: sudo ./configure and sudo make ./configure and I get these errors “./configure: command not found ” It just feels like it doesn't want to be configured at all, all my efforts have been in vain and its day 5 now with no progress, very irritating :((. Plus I've rudementary commands like make make install configure make configure sudo apt-get install for sudo apt-get install I get the following output and nothing else :( “Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 170 not upgraded. ” What do I do were can I find a decent tutorial since even the installation files are giving me a headache and I'm feeling quite discouraged at the moment. -- View this message in context: http://old.nabble.com/GCC4.7.0-Linux-installation-headache-tp33946047p33946047.html Sent from the gcc - Help mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
