digitalmars.D - DMD with older versions of Linux

I tried running dmd from the distribution but got:

./dmd: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by ./dmd)

The instaled versions are:

$ ldd --version
ldd (GNU libc) 2.7

$ uname -a
Linux ps54363 2.6.33.7-vs2.3.0.36.30.4 #23 SMP Tue Sep 28 05:47:35 PDT 2010
x86_64 GNU/Linux


If it's not possible to run the standard DMD package, could I build it from
source using those versions?

Thank you

I don't know it off hand, but just try running »make -f posix.mak« in the src/ directory and you'll see (add »MODEL=64« for x86_64). David

I built it from source on Fedora 9 so that I could use some of my helper programs at work. I had more problems getting git set up properly to grab the latest stuff than building dmd. Building dmd worked just fine. If you use the zip file from the latest release, it should be quite easy. - Jonathan M Davis

Sure. D doesn't have any dependency on the semantics of the newer glib.

I've successfully built and used DMD on Ubuntu 6. I use it to produce linux binaries so my tools will run on older versions of linux. I think it worked on Ubuntu 4 as well, but I had other problems on that version. -- /Jacob Carlborg

You're using the 32bit binary on a 64bit machine. It's possible they do not have 32bit glibc, or possibly 32bit glibc-compat installed. Try using the 64bit binary. (If you were using the 64bit library, it would have thrown an error on /lib64/libc.so.6 .) Also, 2.6.33 is not really "old". 2.6.18 would be "old". :) RHEL 6, just released last November is 2.6.32. -Kai Meyer
