Description Adam Kozakiewicz 2002-10-31 13:03:27 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-17.7.x i686; en-US; 0.7)

Description of problem:
The latest errata gcc is 2.96-85, but some new updates, including XFree86,
require newer releases and won't rebuild. Upgrading to 2.96-108 from 7.2 errata
solves the problem, so why was 7.1 only updated to -85? The ability to build
your own optimized rpms from sources is a rather basic requirement. A newer
release should be added to errata.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.for example: rpm --rebuild --target athlon XFree86-4.1.0-25.src.rpm (other
rpms too, e.g. kernel)

Actual Results:  Error message (gcc >= 2.96-93 required) and several megabytes
of unpacked sources in /usr/src/redhat/...

Expected Results:  XFree86-*.athlon.rpm, of course.

Additional info:

gcc-2.96-108 works fine so far, I'm using recompiled XFree86 at the moment.
