Clang Compiler support in Cent OS 5.8

Post by lyf4sci » 2015/07/07 10:28:52

Hi Experts,

Is there Clang compiler support available along with GCC in the Cent OS 5.8 ?

CentOS 5.8 itself is old, unsupported and needs updating. The current version is 5.11 and is a simple yum update away. There are numerous security vulnerabilities fixed between the two and no-one should run 5.8.

I don't see clang in any well known yum repository for CentOS 5.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

I have some locally produced el5 rpms for llvm and clang 3.4.2 over here. They require devtoolset-2 (from CERN) and python26 (epel) to be installed. No idea if they will work with 5.8. Probably yes, but maybe no.

As I said, I have locally built el5 rpms for llvm and clang 3.4.2. They have been build on 5.11, they are used on 5.11, and they have the above-mentioned dependencies. The source rpm is derived from epel (minus the sanitizers and lldb, which don't build/work, and ocaml bindings which I don't need). Otherwise, I'm am not aware of any official repo that has llvm/clang rpms for el5. If you're interested I can share mine with you. No support, no guaranties beyond works fine for me, no yum repo, just plain rpms.

Hey chemal, care to share you RPM SPEC file that use used to build CLANG for centos 5? I'm attempting a similar exercise and am getting some linker errors that may be why disabled "the sanitizers and lldb."

The spec file alone will not be enough, there are also additional patches and other stuff I already forgot. If you give me an upload address, I'll send you the complete source rpm and (if you like) the rpms, too.

@chemal
Hi, perhaps it is too late, but perhaps not. Can I have those binaries ?
Cheers.

It has come to my attention that there is a copr at

https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs ... vm_381_el5.

You can try that to pimp your venerable el5 system.
