Can not find linux ubuntu

Listen I am really having a big problem here. I have installed the ttb blocks by downloading the _lin and _src file and using make all. Make all runs perfect along with the exapmples. After trying to set the LIBARY_PATH and the two others and the path it still will not work. Also after I managed to find it in the synapic packed manager,so i installed it there hoping it would solve it for me. No matter what I do my code::blocks compiler can not fined the file. Actuallly the complier does not say it can not find it, when I run the program it prints it out on the terminal that it can not find this file. So in short the compliler is finding it I just think it can not run the compiled file because the compiled file can not find it. My guess is this is just the begining of a list of problems to come about not being able to find the files. I have installed numerous libc files, but this one is just not working. Yes I tried linking it in code::blocks linker and search files.
Look I really need help here I do not understand what to do.
I modified the file under current installed verstion /bin and I get an error saying this (modified code below)
ERROR: Unknown switch '$1'. Accepted values: ia32, intel64, ia64

I am new to my bash but I have studied it and understand most of this code the get_ia32 and the others is something I do not understand.
At any rate after installing it by the packed manager it put it into an other file so I want to modify that one and use as I have to asume it was installed right.
To the best of my knowlegde I need to install this file into one of my boot files which is simple enough, but if it is giving an error it is not going to help much.
How do I know which verstion to specify. eg.
cc3.4.4_libc2.3.4_kernel2.6.9 or the other one in the file
There are so may files and folders I am not sure which to use. After runing the make all it did fill up the build
file with what I assume is the proper header and .o files and so on.
Can anyone help me out here, I have done my homework, but do not understand what is going on.
I think that code::blocks is finding the files, but when I run a very simple example of just init of a task it gives
the missing error file. I think it is because the .o, .so and so on in the accutal tbb blocks files can not find it, not
the compiler. I have linked the compiler may times with no problems.
The other thing is I did install the path to that directory in the bash terminal. I know I need to set this into the starup file,
so as I test I copyied all the files temparly to my /bin file to see if they would find them with no change. tested
it this way, so I knew if it was a path problem, that needed to to be set up in the starup file.
Please if you can help me I would be really thankful. I have tried a number of things with no results. If you
could supply me with not only the anwser, but an explaination to what I am missing, so in the future I can do
it my self I would be very thankful. After I get this working on ubuntu I am going to have to install it on my server
that is running opensuse.
Thank you,

P.S. the #!/bin is giving an error that it can not find bash, but bash is my default and I am running this program from
a bash terminal. I changed it to #!/bin from #!/bin/bash because it says it can not find it or something. I was not to
worried about this as I said I am in a bash terminal and I know the bash commands are in the /bin file.

How do I know which verstion to specify. eg.
cc3.4.4_libc2.3.4_kernel2.6.9 or the other one in the file

You simply check the version of the software.

Check the versions of cc, libc, and the linux kernel.

To check the version of cc (I'm guessing it's gcc, cc is for unix)

[bash]gcc -v[/bash]
More info

To check the version of libc

[bash]dpkg -l | grep libc[/bash]
More info

To check the version of your kernel

[bash]uname -r[/bash]
More info

If you have gcc 3.4.4 and libc 2.3.4 along with kernel 2.6.9, choose cc3.4.4_libc2.3.4_kernel2.6.9. If your versions match the other dir, choose the other one.

Then, open up the in the proper "versions" directory in a text editor and replace the tbb install path in the script. Run the script. It should set the tbb variables (the path, lib path, include, etc.)

Hope this helps!

hello donnyb, I have a few questions to clarify to understand the picture better.

1. Do you have bash installed? in some cases it is not installed during default ubuntu installation and we do not work with /bin/dash shell which replaced bash in ubuntu 8.04.

2. which gcc/ubuntu version do you use? if you use gcc from 3.x to you need to setcc3.4.4_libc2.3.4_kernel2.6.9 string in the file. if you use gcc 4.1 and above you need to usecc4.1.0_libc2.4_kernel2.6.16.21string in the file.

My cc is 4.3.3
My libc6 is 2.9.4
And the kernal is 2.6.28-19-generic

Under a folder that my package manager installed, it installed under /tbb/build/linux_ia32_gcc_cc4.3.3_libc2.9_kernel2.6.28_debug
and /tbb/build/linux_ia32_gcc_cc4.3.3_libc2.9_kernel2.6.28_release.
I went into the build file and modified in the tbb/bin/ .sh file and modified as above minus without that dumb 1=ia32. stupid attempt to get it to work. I am not sure which folder to go to use the .sh. There are so many in the package.
At anyrate I know I am running bash because I tested by typing a command in that I can not remember at this point. When I was studying my bash it told me to type something to test to see if it was installed. All the commands are in /bin. At any rate I would reread the manual to find the command, but I have an important meeting this morning.
By looking at my cc and libc and kernal I think the files under the /tbb/build/linux_ia32_gcc_cc4.3.3_libc2.9_kernel2.6.28_debug are the ones I need and/or the realise vertion, I am just not sure which folder to change the .sh file and maybe the command to confirm that bash is installed. Evern though I am sure that I did.
Thanks you very much,

P.s. Thank you for the help I would spend more time on this morning, but I got to make it to that meeting, but I want to make sure I do not loss you. I now understand how to find the verstion I need, now I just I need to figure out the rest
