#153 closed defect (wontfix)

Remove the need of GCC422.DLL

Description

The option "-static-libgcc" applied to the link step seems to do the trick and prevents the users from having to hunt for another DLL.

I don't find it really important as both the kLIBC runtime and GCC runtime are meant to be part of the eCS base install anyway (and now they are). So it's not really a problem for the "mainstream" users. Those enthusiasts who are still stuck with other OS/2 versions for some reason should be smart enough to get the WPI and install it. (Static libraries should be avoided by all means since they waste system resources).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

as this compiler GCC 4.4.2 and better ist used on a lot more projects w/o static binding we decided to create a wpi which includes all necessary dll. ecs 2.0 already has them installed by default. the wpi will be provided shortly
