Re: compiling linux kernels with GCC 3.0

Ask the Linux kernel folks.  Their documentation tells you to use egcs
1.1.2 because GCC 2.95.x has critical bugs, and to use GCC 2.95.{2,3}
because egcs 1.1.2 has critical bugs. ;-)

However, Alan Cox has just recommended to use GCC 2.95.{3,4}.  GCC 3.x
is still not likely to work reliably reliably, but for details, you
should really ask on the Linux kernel mailing list.
