      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.

partimage - incompatible version of gcc [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I just installed partimage via urpmi but when I attempt to use the program I get the following error:


Error: sizeof(DWORD) != 4 (8)
This version has been compiled with an uncompatible version of gcc.


So I used urpme to uninstall it and downloaded and installed a file from a different server. Same problem.


Next I downloaded the source rpm then used "rpm --rebuild" and installed the resulting rpms. Same result as above.


My OS Mandriva 2007 x86_64 and my gcc version 4.1.1 20060724 (prerelease) (4.1.1-3mdk). Any ideas? I'm at a loss as to what is going on here.

It doesn't matter now. I've installed the partimage i386 static binary tarball from http://www.partimage.org/ which worked fine. I only wanted to make a backup image file of my WinXP partition so that next time it stuffs itself up I don't have to remove my linux partitions just to reinstall windows (especially when I only use windows every 2 months)!


Still think the gcc version mixup is a bit strange though...
