    Subjectsafest verion of gcc to use?
    hi,

    quick question here. [kernel-src]/Documentation/Changes and
    [kernel-src]/README say two different things about which version of gcc
    is recommended for the compiling of the linux kernel. README says egcs
    1.1.2 and Documentation/Changes says to use gcc 2.95.3 or greater.
    is the last egcs release still the preferred or has that changed to the
    gcc 2.95.x releases?

    i assume that README is outdated and should not mention a version of gcc
    at all for compilation of the src. it seems that README instructs the user
    to refer to Documentation/Changes for the latest info but makes it confusing
    by stating, "Make sure you have gcc-2.91.66 (egcs-1.1.2) available."
