Description of problem:
Latest upgrade gives kernel-2.6.12-1.1372, which has been compiled with gcc 3.4.3. Afterwards the upgrade gave us gcc 3.4.4, which is unsuitable for compiling other modules in this particular kernel, like for instance vmware one.
We definitively need a kernel-2.6.12-1.1372 compiled with gcc-3.4.4-2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade kernel
2. Upgrade gcc
3. Cannot compile other modules for the same kernel
Actual Results: You cannot compile other modules for the same kernel.
Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "3.4.3", while you are trying to use
"/usr/bin/gcc" version "3.4.4". This configuration is not recommended and VMware
Workstation may crash if you'll continue.
Expected Results: You should compile modules as usual.
Latest mkinitrd-22.214.171.124-1 is installed and the initrd has been recreated
We just need another 2.6.12 kernel recompiled with gcc 3.4.4
there's an errata in progress which should be built with the latest compiler.
Please be sure to test the updates-testing kernel when it appears to make sure
this got fixed correctly.
