 Well, as much as I preach the "RTFB" in my line of work, after reading
the link of what the output should look like did I realize that the
errors was normal and my output looked exactly like what it should. Which
brings me to my next question, there's a link of gccx failing to find
some include files (I can provide the link when I get home.) These errors
only exist if the gcc patch is installed. I'm thinking that people are
doing what I did and using the pre-existing build of GCC from chapter 5.x
which is generating all sorts of errors. Are we supposed to do it this
way, or are we supposed to create fresh source directories everytime we
work with a program. NOTE: I have gone on removing all directories if
they exist when compiling a program and I have made it as far as GRUB in
section 16 without issues. Did I hose the system by deleting the source
dir of GCC left over from 5.x?
