rawhide against the gcc4.0 tree

Recommended Posts

Just did an update on my rawhide box and it looks to be upgrading a lot of packages :banana:

Let us (or certainly me :) ) know how it goes, and if theres any noticeable improvement in speed/reduction in binary size. I'm getting a little bored with gentoo and a good gcc4 FC4 could tempt me away.

 

Plus OS X 10.4 is using gcc4.... ;)

GCC 4.0 is available in Gentoo since February AFAIK but I don't know how stable it is ..... I'd like to know how it works for you. Maybe I'll also take the plunge ;).

Yep, Gentoo added it in Feb.

Fedora Core 3 had it in November. And fc4 should be released built against it, since the rawhide tree is being pushed against it.

I don't know much about Mac, are they using everything compiled against it or just as an option like it was in fc3 to be able to use it.

 

I'm running rawhide on a dual p3 833 and it does "seem" very peppy now. Kind of like when I moved from fc2(gcc-3.3) to fc3(3.4) was a notice and now 4.0 seems to be doing the samething as far as faster code and just the "feel" of it.

Box is still running great, it certianly feels snappier, its also running gnome 2.9.91

 

4.0 is the only thing on here as far as compilers go.

Theres a ebuild in bugzilla, but theres nothing in portage - I'm not willing to mess about with that on a laptop I need for everyday work.

 

I don't know much about Mac, are they using everything compiled against it or just as an option like it was in fc3 to be able to use it.

 

AFAIK (I'm not a paid up mac developer so I don't have the preview release) everything is compiled against it, sounds like it could be a good upgrade even if I am loathed to pay for an OS these days.

I've got a couple friends at work that run the dev stuff from MAC so I should probably ask them :D

 

There mac zealots, both of them have at least 6 macs at home :furious3:
