I am try to compile the Darwin kernel 9.8 on my system according this page https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Conceptual/KernelP rogramming/build/build.html


but unfortunaly I get the error message


-bash: gcc_select: command not found



According to the manpage http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/Manpages/ 10.5/man1/powerpc-apple-darwin9-gcc-


In Apple's version of GCC, both cc and gcc are actually symbolic links to a compiler named like        gcc-version; which compiler is linked to may be changed using the command gcc_select.  Similarly, c++        and g++ are links to a compiler named like g++-version.

    For information like this you will be better off going to Apple's developer forums. The people on these boards are mostly consumers just trying to use their Macs and other Apple devices. You will need to sign up as a developer to do so. Note the link at the bottom of the page which allows you to sign up for free.


    Best of luck.

    Thank for the answer


    but unfurtunaly I can´t sign in to the developer Forum don´t know why

    I suggest that I have to pay $99/year to get access to Forum

    Developer Technical Support Incidents are only available to members of the iOS, Mac, and Safari Developer Programs.


    for a simple answer I am not ready to pay 99$ that is rip off fraud



    Welcome to Apple

    NO MONEY get out of here
