SubjectRe: Where did kgcc go in 2.4.0-test10 ?

Since you're setting yourself up as a proponent of this can you
explain why RedHat includes a compiler that doesn't work with the
kernel?

Because the kernel is buggy (the specifics of this has been discussed
before on this list) and we didn't have time to implement and QA the
changes needed in time for the 7.0 release.

Furthermore I was correcting Nathan's statement that this was a "Red
Hat thing", not specifically upholding the virtues of using a
different compiler for the kernel. That is a completely seperate
topic and we've had that taken that conversation as far as it will go
already remember? :-)
Finally, if I were to state "fsmlabs are a bunch of pinheads because
they did XXX" I would expect you to defend your employer as well if I
misrepresented them due to incorrect statements. Right? :-)

Later,
