I didn't see anyone ask this yet so here goes. Why are there both GCC 3.3.2 and GCC 3.2.3 in Fedora????


gcc-3.2.3 is for building the kernel.

Forgive my ignorance, but still -- why?


Among other things, GCC 3.3 removed the deprecated multi-line string
literals extension from the preprocessor.
This has been used heavily all over the kernel and although it has
been cleaned in many places in 2.4.x kernels, it is still present
in several places.
2.6.x kernels should build with GCC 3.3.x just fine.

Thanks for the explanation. Still I think it would be less confusing and more logical to release 2.4.x-based FC1 with GCC 3.2.x and move on to kernel 2.6.x and GCC 3.3.x in FC2.
