Description Luis Fernando da Silva 2006-06-02 01:47:49 UTC
Description of problem:
I am compiling the LFS (fast streams) however I am getting the following 
message :

configure: WARNING:
*** The kernel compiler was:
***   "gcc version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-2)",
*** and the current compiler is:
***   "gcc version 3.4.5 20051201 (Red Hat 3.4.5-2)".
*** These compilers do not match.
*** This will cause problems later.

  I tried to get the newest gcc, however it says I am already up2date, but my 
gcc version 3.4.5 20051201 (Red Hat 3.4.5-2). 
  I have recently update my kernel to this new version and it is the latest 
for my platform, so my question is how the kernel can be compiled with a newer 
version and I am not able to get the same version using the up2date ? 
  How can I get the correct version of gcc which match this new kernel ?
  Thanks very much,

Even though the compiler version is not supplied, this should not cause any
problems with third party kernel modules. If there is a really problem please
