Description Manfred Spraul 2002-11-12 18:42:29 UTC
(Not a bugreport, more a random rant)

With the latest 2.96-RH gcc update, there are now 2 different gcc-2.96-112
releases with different bugfixes:

gcc-2.96-112.i386.rpm from June
gcc-2.96-112.7.2.i386.rpm from today

Could you try to avoid that in the future? It would be simpler to handle user
bug reports if higher number means more bugfixes applied - with the new
numbering, I have to look into your bugfix advisories to find that out.

There is gcc-2.96-113 for 7.3, gcc-2.96-112.7.2 is for RHL 7.2.
