Pinned topic Puirfy Installation and default compiler

‏2007-10-23T09:45:46Z |
Hi All;

I have a question and hopefully ye can answer it. On our Solaris box we are trying to install purify, but purify looks for the default compiler(which is old) and we get an error. Is there a way to tell the installation to look at another location for the compiler?
Thanks
ST

    Don't worry about the error. The quick "self-test" that Purify does at
    the end of the installation
    is just a quick test to make sure things are installed properly. Often,
    when the installation is
    done as "root" and the build environment is not setup correctly, this
    self-test will fail. But don't
    worry. As long as the installation was successful up to that point, you
    should be fine. The self-
    test is the last thing that happens during an installation.

    Go ahead and run Purify and see if it works. It should work fine unless
    you've redefined CC to
    point at "gcc" or something like that. :-)

    Regards,
    Don

    Dear,

    As you said, Go ahead and run Purify and see if it works. It should work fine unless you've redefined CC to point at "gcc" or something like that.

    Could you explain how to do that ? How to redefine CC to point at gcc. For that purpose, Do I need to login must with "root" user ? or I can do that with any user ? like I have installed PurifyPlus without root user.

    Thanks
