Description of problem:
This kernel update appears to have been built with gcc-3.4.3, while the compiler currently available on FC3 is gcc-3.4.2
This causes problems with some applications that require additional kernel modules.
Please either release a gcc update, or a new kernel update that was compiled with the current gcc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Have you *tried* kernel modules built with gcc-3.4.3 anyway? They seem to work
for me in FC3 with these kernels. Anyway, reassigning to gcc. We'll let jakub
I tried, it fails. There could be many reasons for the failure, true, and i
didn't look too closely (not that i'm a kernel modules expert anyway), but...
well, that's it.
gcc-3.4.3 is in updates-testing.
FWIW, openafs seems to work fine (for the current definition of openafs working
fine) with the new kernel and gcc 3.4.2.
