Description of problem:
gcc3 seems to be missing from redhat 7.3. gcc3 was in redhat-7.2 and an update
was even released. I wouldn't turn this in, except that it also wasn't mentioned
in the release notes. I read mention doing the beta that it wasn't included
until it could be decided if to include 3.0.4 or 3.1. It seems someone forgot to
make the decesion, or forgot to mention the decesion to drop it all together in
the release notes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount redhat 7.3 cds
2. ls the right directories and grep for gcc3
Actual Results: no results
Expected Results: gcc3 packages
for the latest version of gcc 3.1 packages.
I found this most annoying as well. I need gcc 3.x for c++ cs homework (it
requires the c++ standards support that isn't in 2.9x). I also want to use apps
(cinerella) that don't compile with 2.9x.
I suppose that url provided for gcc3 *should* say
I'm trying to apply these RPMs to RedHat7.2
After updating my machine to the latest GDB, I still get this conflict:
kaffe conflicts with libgcj3-3.1-5
Is it safe to ignore this? I didn't see any newer of kaffe around mine is
Engine: Just-in-time v3 Version: 1.0.6 Java Version: 1.1
Thanks for posting these, they save us a lot of trouble because we need to work in GCC3 but want to keep GCC2.9x around in case we have to build any
drivers or kernel modules to add on to the RH kernel. Having both compilers available is essential till RH upgrades to GCC3
kaffe has been deprecated, and is no longer included in redhat linux, as of
7.3. The solution to your rpm conflict would be do remove kaffe.
Would it be possible to get these RPM built to install GCC 3.2 as GCC3?
