I don't have factory running anywhere, but I
thought gcc 4.6 was in
factory now, but not as default.
You have to invoke it as gcc46 was my
Would updating the specfile to use gcc46 instead
of gcc be feasible
until the default gcc is updated?
Yeah, that'd be pretty easy. The hard part comes in when you want to
build KMPs against that kernel since they won't be using the same
compiler version unless they're *also* modified to use CC=gcc-4.6
I guess this begs the question is what needs to be done to enable 4.6
as the default in Factory ?
I know there was a list a while back of packages which were not building
on gcc4.6, but have they been resolved ?
The other question I would ask is what other gcc4.6 options might we
want to enable by default ? Now it seems would be a good time to
contemplate this and do some experiments.
Getting a newer compiler in Factory early would be great for ensuring it
gets lots of extended testing. I've branched gcc4.6 from Factory and
enabled 11.4 and 11.3 repos for those who might like to experiment. I've
tested some packages locally and do not see any real issues.
