Re: [Rd] Cross-compilation

Thanks for your reply, as an example it appears to have difficulty linking to even ostream library of the standard C++, as shown below:

/home/tmccallum/ritzel/RItzel/src/Classifier.cpp:209: undefined reference to `_ZStlsISt11char_traitsIcEERSt13basic_ostreamIcT_ES5_PKc' Classifier.o: In function `operator<<':
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/4.0.2/../../../../include/c++/4.0.2/ostream:218: undefined reference to `_ZNSolsEd'
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/4.0.2/../../../../include/c++/4.0.2/ostream:196: undefined reference to `_ZNSolsEl'

I am currently working R-2.4.0 as downloaded today.

I know the g++ has gone through some alterations and wondered if you knew the version of g++ you cross-compiled your package with for comparison - mine is g++ (GCC) 4.0.2 20051125 (Red Hat 4.0.2-8).

Many thanks
