Hello all,

When I went to emerge xorg-x11, I got the following error:

Code:

*
* ERROR: sys-devel/gcc-3.3.6-r1 failed.
* Call stack:
*   ebuild.sh, line 1654:   Called dyn_compile
*   ebuild.sh, line 990:   Called qa_call 'src_compile'
*   ebuild.sh, line 44:   Called src_compile
*   ebuild.sh, line 1334:   Called toolchain_src_compile
*   toolchain.eclass, line 26:   Called gcc_src_compile
*   toolchain.eclass, line 1546:   Called gcc_do_make
*   toolchain.eclass, line 1420:   Called die
*
* emake failed with bootstrap-lean


I don't understand this particular error. For one, I don't understand why gcc-3.3.6-r1 was required by X. I have a much later version of gcc merged already. Any suggestions?

Can you please explain why the problem occurred and why this is the solution? Sorry to be a bother, but I would just like to learn so I can better understand.

No, I'm sorry, I've just seen this asked so many times already.

The problem is some binary you are trying to install on your system was linked against a C++ lib provided by gcc 3.3, so in order to acquire that library you need gcc 3.3.

"libstdc++-v3" provides the library without installing gcc 3.3 itself, unfortunately portage defaults to pulling in gcc 3.3 instead (read the bug I mentioned for an explanation for this behaviour).

Hope that clears it up a little more.

Thank you very much for the information. It was just so odd because I never had the problem before (with previous installations). I'm just surprised that it's not mentioned anywhere in the documentation. Again, I really appreciate the help. :)

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads, refer to topic "Portage wants me to merge gcc 3?!".
