    opensuse 10.3 building 32-bit on 64-bit os

    I'm trying to build a 32-bit program (because the proprietary libraries it uses are 32-bit only on linux) on a 64-bit installation of OpenSuse 10.3, and I have all of the proper packages installed, but the problem I'm having is that the linker tries (and fails) to use the 64-bit libgcc_s, when it should be using the 32-bit one. how do I get it to ignore a whole library folder (/lib64) or even just a single library (/lib64/libgcc_s.so.1) when compiling?

    Give flag -m32 for cc.

    I'm doing that, but it still seems to want to use the 64-bit version of ligcc_s.

    I think that is a bug. I think compiler driver should realise to link 32-bit libraries when it's told to generate 32-bit code. Have you tried invoking the link editor yourself?

    And you have 32-bit libraries installed? Even in that case it should IMO report missing 32-bit library and not try to use 64-bit library.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by 'link editor'

    The linker. Link editor is another term used and I'm used to it.
