After hours of meticulous downloading, I grabbed all the RPMs I could from
ftp.linux.sgi.com and began trying to install them. Most worked like a
charm, including many that I couldn't get to compile myself. . However,
one big problem has appeared: I can't compile any programs because
/usr/lib/crtbegin.o is now missing. I tried recompiling glibc-2.0.4 and
it didn't produce the file. After looking on a Redhat/ALPHA box,
/usr/lib/crtbegin.o belongs to glibc.rpm; what gives?
Anyway, I'm looking for that file, if anyone can send it or tell me where
to find it.
