As Bullfreeware.com will be closed on 1st March, 2022. Need libstdc and libgcc specific packages to be uploaded to AIX tools for project to work.

Following are the packages with their versions that need to be uploaded urgently on the tool:-
libstdc++-4.9.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm
libstdc++-4.9.2-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
libgcc-4.9.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm
libgcc-4.9.2-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm

Is there any replacement site like Bullfreeware.com that I can use for my project.
Please let me know asap if they can't be uploaded to AIX Tools. Thank you.

Those are packages needed when applications are built using gcc.

Not sure how long PERZL is staying active: http://www.perzl.org/aix/ - afaik, his packaging was consistent with the BULL freeware site. So, looking there first may be your best bet - as he also has/had support for AIX 6.1

Otherwise: for about AIX 6.1 support by AIXToolbox (IBM site): https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/883796?mhsrc=ibmsearch_a&mhq=AIXToolbox

Please note: you cannot MIX RPM's from BULL/PERZL and IBM (AIXToolbox).

The packages I supply are not RPM's, and generally speaking, run using IBM supported run-time-libraries because I use 'xlc' as my compiler rather than gcc.

- so, to specifically answer your question: I have never, nor do I intend to start, supporting RPM package requirements.

So, my question: what OSS packages are vital for your projects?

Hi,

Okay thank you for the reply. I had a confusion regarding the RPMs, thanks for clarifying and for the support link by AIXToolbox (IBM site).

Which packages (RPM) do you use - ignore all their dependencies - what are you actually using?
