Description Codrut Grosu 2015-08-07 09:21:20 EDT

I'm a CentOS 6.6 user and I'm using the default GCC (4.4.7) compiler of CentOS 6.6.

I'm trying to use the gcov tool for my code in CentOS 6.6 with gcc 4.4.7 and I have the same problem that was reported at [1].

I send an email to Richard Biener to fix the bug for the gcc 4.4.7 but he told me that gcc 4.4.7 is no longer maintained.

The bug was fixed for gcc 4.8.0 and above .

He also added that I should "talk with the boys from RedHat to backport the patch to their compiler".

I hope that you boys can do your magic again and fix this bug.

The fact that CentOS 6 will be maintained until 2020 gives me confidence that you'll do your best to fix this bug.

I'm puting this bug here because on https://www.centos.org/forums they told me to report the bug to RedHat on bugzilla.redhat.com .

[1] : https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=49484 [^]

Codrut Grosu.

P.S. Sorry for my English... I'm better with vim :D :P
