Zvi,

One other comment...although I haven't tried it I would think it should be possible to use the RPM package manager documented on the Yips website to download a newer version of the gcc compiler.

You could probably take a peek at the wwwinstall.sh script on the Yips website to see how that script goes about installing the AIX gcc 4.0.0 compiler and instead create a new install script to pull down a more current gcc version from the AIX open source binary FTP website found here:

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/aix/freeSoftware/aixtoolbox/RPMS/ppc/gcc/

Zvi,

Any chance you can get by with the gcc compiler (4.0.0 I think) from the
Young i Professionals web site has instructions and tooling available to
install rpm packages on IBM i from the AIX Toolbox for Linux site. One
of the packages available is the gcc compiler. See here for details:

Eric, Walt,

I need relatively newer than gcc 4.1.1 that can be just copied from
tar file simply to /usr/local without any operation.
I tried to install the gcc 4.6.0 compiler from
gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1.aix5.2.ppc.rpm by rpm utility,
but I got messages about dependencies.
rpm -Uvh --force gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1.aix5.2.ppc.rpm
error: failed dependencies:

/bin/sh is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1
libc.a(shr.o) is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1 libgmp.a(libgmp.so.3) is

gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1 libmpc.a(libmpc.so.2) is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1
libmpfr.a(libmpfr.so.1) is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1

Can I find a simple newer version of gcc to be copied to /usr/local
without all those annoying steps ?

Regards,

Zvi

Walt,

Thanks for the reference. I did find this reference with the Wiki
documentation earlier and found this exceedingly helpful.

I appreciate your response.

Erick

One is for AIX, one for the System p, and one for the Open Source
Packages. The likely candidate is Bull's freeware and shareware for
AIX. Is this compatible for the IBM i at V6R1M0 within AIX? If not,
is there a binary available elsewhere?
