Wrong-code bugfixes in GCC 4.6.2
Last modified: 2011-11-22 11:52:39 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #739766 +++
If all these 3 packages could make it into f16, it would be nice, with the f16 glibc gcc doesn't build otherwise.
There have been important wrong-code bugfixes in this gcc, like e.g.
http://gcc.gnu.org/PR49279 where GCC miscompiled Eigen2 or
http://gcc.gnu.org/PR50700 which is a -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 wrong-code or
http://gcc.gnu.org/PR50189 (another miscompilation) just to name a few.
GCC is from a stable branch limited for regression bugfixes and documentation fixes and has been thoroughly tested There has been no changes in libgcc nor libstdc++ (subpackages because of which gcc is CRITPATH).

jakub: this bug was filed for the python plugin, not gcc itself. if you want that update pulled into final (and it does look like a good NTH candidate) we should use a different bug.
(plus gcc-python-plugin would need to be updated too).
Already during the package build gcc performs many thousands of tests and there have been no regressions since the gcc in F16 right now.
gcc-4.6.2-1.fc16, libtool-2.4-7.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Discussed at 2011-10-28 NTH review meeting, accepted as NTH due to severity of impact, people may need to compile stuff when booted live. It would be fine to edit the update to pull in the gcc-python-plugin rebuild to avoid dep issues in the repos.
Can some provenpackager do it? I don't have ACLs for gcc-python-plugin and thus can't add gcc-python-plugin to the bodhi request.
Package gcc-4.6.2-1.fc16, libtool-2.4-7.fc16, gcc-python-plugin-0.6-4.2.fc16:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 16 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gcc-4.6.2-1.fc16 libtool-2.4-7.fc16 gcc-python-plugin-0.6-4.2.fc16'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
gcc-4.6.2-1.fc16, libtool-2.4-7.fc16, gcc-python-plugin-0.6-4.2.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Jakub: if you want the ACLs on that plugin, go to:
and request them (assuming that you're logged in to the web UI). (There doesn't seem to be a way for me to directly add you to the package).
