gcc 3.04 - mandrake 8.2 beta 2

gcc 3.04 built fine on mandrake 8.2 beta 2 (even for a one-week n00bie
like me :>). i just put in all the default command-lines from the
installation instructions, using a separate build dir as recommended.
output from config.guess is:


gcc -v gives:

Reading specs from yadda yadda
Configured with: ../gcc-3.0.4/configure
Thread model: single
gcc version 3.0.4

kernel: 2.4.17-16mdk (standard in this release of Mandrake, and I think
for all other releases of 8.2, not 100% sure on that though.)

glibc version: glibc-2.2.4-24mdk

one note which experienced users will probably get straight away but
which i was proud of myself for noticing (:>) is that Mandrake's default
version of gcc (2.9.6) isn't installed in the same place gcc 3.0.4
installs itself, so even though 3.0.4 builds and installs fine, unless
you force 3.0.4 to run with the -V parameter, 2.9.6 will run when you
use 'gcc'. to fix this I went to /usr/bin and changed the symlink named
'gcc' there to point to the newly installed gcc 3.0.4 (in
/usr/local/bin) instead of the old one (which is in /usr/bin, called
gcc-2.96). you could presumably alternatively tell configure to install
gcc in /usr/lib instead of /usr/local/lib, too. hmm, i feel all l33t
now. :). bye!
