It seems to work, but attempts to compile the kernel have failed due to (known) issues. We're working on gcc 4.6.1 in Owl-current. Some packages are fixed to be buildable under gcc 4.6.1, but not all of them. Current list of broken packages is as following: kernel glibc libtool perl If you have patched for them - please share. > A libc / binutils upgrade doesn't seem to be needed at first sight, I'll see if I can recompile all sources. IIRC, we need glib upgrade to enable -fstack-protector, it needs libc support, which we don't currently have with old version of glibc. But also we need glibc update before updating other packages/packetizing new packages as the fixes to the build process of RPM may vary between old and new glibc. As we want to minimize future patching, we'll upgrade glibc first. Thanks, -- Vasiliy
