[Gcl-devel] Re: GCL 2.6.6 is released

Hi, Camm --

It turns out that for some reason I can't see ftp.gnu.org from work, but I can
see if from home.  So I've fetched the tar.gz file.

But I'm getting an error during the make, probably because we have an old
version of gcc by default.  Rather than get that working, I'd be delighted to
download a binary x86 distribution of GCl 2.6.6, but I couldn't find one (we're
running Redhat rather than Debian, but I doubt that this matters).  Is one

Thanks --

   Greetings!  That's odd, the links seem to work for me.  Are you
   looking at http://www.gnu.org/software/gcl?

   In any case,

   You can get 2.6.6 either from


   or via cvs

   export CVS_RSH=ssh
   export CVSROOT=:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/gcl
   cvs -z9 -q co -d gcl-2.6.6 -r Version_2_6_6 gcl

   Please let me know if problems persist.

   Take care,
