What is wrong with the current ppc compiler? Franz Sirl has a 2.93 -2f rpm set he has put togther that has lots of stuff backported from the current cvs tree.
I have been building and using the KDE 1.9.X series with no problems to this point built from the source tarballs?
What changed in the final KDE 2.0 series that prevents the current tool chain from working (binutils .24, gcc 2.93-2f, glibc-2.1.3)?
Specifics would help here?
