Just to chime in, I too had the problem with "C compiler cannot create executable". I was able to fix the problem by executing the following:

Code:
gcc-config i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.3.5
fix_libtool_files.sh 3.3.4


It worked for me, YMMV.

I tried everything here and then commented my FEATURES line before I got things working again (no more compiler can't create executables problem). I now recall ccache saving some broken builds, so as a suggestion, it might be good to disable ccache or clear the cache (ccache -C) after you do one of the other fixes.

I had this problem on emerging gettext, using the standard CFLAGS from the stage 1-on-3 install. I did this:

Code:
export CFLAGS=""


And it is currently compiling. As soon as it's done, I'll put them back in and emerge everything else....

Hope taht helps someone out.

Hello all,

have the same problem. I install gentoo on my laptop and after "emerge system" got this problem after the first step, when it try to install cpio-2.6-r1.

Update:

It seems that binutils are missing. In config.log the comipler doesnt fing "as". How can it be?

Here we go again: I've broken gcc :cry:

I've been reading the forums for the past 3 days, I've also read the FAQ and all related posts. Still no luck, no way to emerge anything.

This is briefly what I tried:
Code:

gcc-config 1 (switched to the previous 3.3.4 version)
gcc-config 2 (switched to the current 3.3.5 version)
fix_libtools_files.sh 3.3.4
fix_libtools_files.sh 3.3.5
sh /etc/make.conf (to see if my lags were OK)


I've also tried to modify /etc/env.d/ld.so.conf as mentioned in some posts.
I've tried to run env-update with and without source /etc/profile (someone mentioned in bugzilla a bug in the script...)
I've modified /etc/env.d/05gcc to reflect the current gcc version used.
I've alos tried many other things but I can't remember in which order and what that was...

And finally, before posting this, I've tried to chroot into my box hoping that I could use the compiler of the live cd. If someone already recovered from this problem by doing so I'd really be happy to know how such a miracle has been accomplished.

Before I just reformat and start all over again, I wanted to try this great forum. :)

Here is my emerge info:

I'm also stuck with the problem, that I cannot compile anything.

But as for your problem, I read something in another thread that might help you.

Your emerge info says:
your emerge --info wrote:
CFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=i686 -pipe"

In THIS thread I read, that -mcpu was deprecated. Maybe you have the same problem as this guy did.



As for myself, when I emerge e.g. kdebase, I get this:
Code:
>>> emerge (1 of 1) kde-base/kdebase-3.4.0 to /
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) kdebase-3.4.0.tar.bz2

See `config.log' for more details


It also startet after an emerge -eD world.
I have now only gcc-3.4.3 and I also have tried all kinds of things mentioned in this form, like gcc-config <compiler>, adjust ld.so.conf, fix_libtool_files.sh etc., but nothing helped! :-(

But I'm still not ready to give up, since so far I was always able to fix my gentoo. 8-)

As for my system, this is my emerge --info:

See `config.log' for more details.


Just in case: here's the whole file. config.log

Looking at the files again, I noticed one strange thing: I have 2 gcc-directories in my path:
  • /usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/3.4.3
  • /usr/i586-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/3.4.3-20050110

Both these directories exist. The top one is the first in my path!

If I do a 'gcc --version', I get gcc (GCC) 3.4.3 20050110 (Gentoo Linux 3.4.3.20050110, ssp-3.4.3.20050110-0, pie-8.7.7)

One of the fixes I tried, was written in bug 85490. So I guess the path with "i585" is the precompiled binary from the bugfix, the other (i686) is what I compiled from my emerge.

Well, I also "solved" the problem by doing a full reinstall, because that seemed the fastest solution after all.

2005.0 already runs nice an smooth with gcc 3.3.5.

First excuse my english. But nobody on the Scandinavian forum know what is wrong.
(norwegian version at http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-316515.html)

I get the error after updating the system to 2005.0 using this guide http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/amd64/2005.0-upgrade-amd64.xml#doc_chap2 (The scripted way) I received no error under the install of 2005.0.

[maybe important or maybe not important at all]
The day before the upgrade i fix a bug I had with gcc. I was unable to oppgrade (or downgrade) gcc. but this bug report fixed it. http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86123

The advice was:
Quote:

rm -f /usr/lib32
ln -s ../../emul/linux/x86/usr/lib /usr/lib32
FEATURES=-sandbox emerge gcc


This fix the gcc update problem. (but i am wondering it may break somting else?)

Now gcc is not usable for anyting.

Tings I have tested:
1) fix_libtool_files.sh 3.4.2
2) gcc-config 1
3) Edit /etc/ld.so.conf all gcc paths point to 3.4.3-20050110 and not 3.4.2
4) Dubble checked make.conf for errors/typos
5) Compile with out any CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS

I am aware of Bug 73435 ( http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73435 ) But I can't see how to fix my system with the answers given in this bug-report.

ikaro point out "20050110/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: crt1.o: No such file: No such file or directory" as the error line but I don't now how to use this info :-(

Dave Nebinger wrote this on the gentoo-user mailing list:
Quote:

Well probably you lost your /usr/lib32's file crt1.o file. Bummer.

If you remember what the old /usr/lib32 link was you might be able to copy
it back to /usr/lib32.

To properly repair your system you should probably re-emerge glibc now that
gcc is functioning again, but you'll need to get by the missing crt1.o file
before you'll be able to do that.


But how do I compile glibc with no working compillers?

Don't know if this is your problem but it fixed mine by doing the following (this was after the upgrade to 2005.0)

Once you have gone through all the other suggestions in previous post then try this:

Code:
binutils-config --amd64

then

Code:
source /etc/profile


Gets rid of the below error for me.
Code:
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc... x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

Some summaries
Can't find binutils: [ugly version]
Code:

saturn / # cd /usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu/binutils-bin/2.15.92.0.2/
saturn 2.15.92.0.2 # for binutil in * ; do ln -s $binutil /bin ; done; #make symlinks

however, the above way in my case sometimes fails with message "too many levels of symbolic links"

Can't find binutils: [nice version]
Code:

saturn / # vim /etc/env.d/05binutils
#add this line:
PATH=/usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu/binutils-bin/2.15.92.0.2/


Libstdc++ missing or wrong version:
Code:

saturn / # vim /etc/env.d/05gcc
#add this line:
GCC_SPECS="/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.3-20050110/specs"
#remember to adjust the folder named [gcc version] with the folder on your filesystem
saturn / # env-update

I was having the same problem.

binutils-config --x86

seemed to fix it for me.

I am installing gentoo, and when I emerge some programs, it works perfectly, but then others, such as pcmcia, reiserfsprogs, and others I don't remember right now, give me an error message telling me that the C compiler cannot create executables. I don't know how to check config.log, (I'm a bit of a newb), so if any one can tell me how to do that please do. I've never had much if any luck installing programs on Linux of any kind, so if anyone can help me, again, please do.


-Peter

P.S. I deleted all of my mom's e-mails to do this, most of which she needed, so I really need to get this working :oops:

Never Mind, I fixed the problem by completely starting the installation over. It turns out I was using stage3 and configuring it a s stage1 :wink: . I haven't gotten everything installed yet, (working on the fourth try, emerging gentoo-sources). Thanks anyway.

Fourth try is ok for a first time... took me 16 tryes just to boot the livecd correctly (but I did have a TOTALLY new machine and the livecd didn't have support for my cdrom, which it still doesnt :D)

is it recommandable to just extract a binary of gcc and install it that way?

long story short, i have tried all possible things mentioned in this thread, but nothing helps. Worth mentioning might be that I do not have binutils-config.
Code:


# emerge -p binutils

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] sys-devel/binutils-config-1.8-r2 
[ebuild   R   ] sys-devel/binutils-2.15.92.0.2-r7 





I really really really do not want to reinstall gentoo at this point, really bad idea


in times like this one misses the pkg_add utility from solaris/*bsd : )

Well, it could help... but it's not gcc that's the problem with binutils. It's the broken binutils.

I have no idea what the problem might be, by all means tell us more :D we like problems :D

Anyway, yes, i think it's ok if you just unpack the binary gcc. Just remember you might need all of the base precompiled packages, not just gcc :D.

anyway, things seem to compile now.

solution:

I downloaded the latest stage 1 tarball.

made a backup of my /etc


untared the stage 1 tarball into /

replaced the /etc with my backup


then did a emerge -du world




well, things compile now, I hope I did not forget anything important as a step.



/cheers

Hello,

I am attempting to emerge php and have the same error "Compiler: cannot create executables." I've read through this thread and mine doesn't appear to have the same cause but perhaps someone can assist me.

Code:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

configure:1653: checking host system type
configure:1753: checking for gcc
configure:1866: checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O2 -march=pentium2 -fomit-frame-pointer  -ltiff -L/usr/lib) works

configure:1908: checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O2 -march=pentium2 -fomit-frame-pointer  -ltiff -L/usr/lib) is a cross-compiler

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 2141 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

int main() {

; return 0; }


The rest is here: http://www.zerwalter.com/config.log

Here is what portage says (an excerpt):

Code:

checking for getrlimit... yes
checking for PSPELL support... yes
checking for new_aspell_config in -laspell... yes
checking for QtDOM support... yes
checking for c++... c++
checking whether the C++ compiler (c++ -O2 -march=pentium2 -fomit-frame-pointer -L/usr/lib  -ltiff -L/usr/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/qt/3/lib -L/usr/qt/3/lib) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C++ compiler cannot create executables.


Thanks in advance :)
