Description Alex Buell 2006-01-02 14:06:21 UTC
xmingw-binutils 18.104.22.168.2 is too old and won't compile correct code for certain projects such as ReactOS (http://www.reactos.org). Can't the newer version of xmingw-binutils be marked as stable yet?
Comment 1 Alex Buell 2006-01-06 13:04:38 UTC
Need to add the latest version of binutils for xmingw.
Comment 2 Pablo De Nápoli 2006-06-03 19:06:06 UTC
Please update this package! (I'm also using it to build ReactOS) In fact, the stable version of xmingw-binutils (22.214.171.124.2) cannot be build with gcc-4.1.1 and binutils-2.16.1-r2 so I've upgraded to binutils-126.96.36.19950118.1 (the unstable version) In the React OS wiki at http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/HOWTO/setup_a_build_environment_for_Linux/Gentoo threse are some ebuilds (a portage overlay) for newer versions, http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0448311801/gentoo/dev-util.tar.bz2 These ebuilds use binutils-188.8.131.52.1 and gcc-3.4.4. (I've not tested them yet) It would be nice to put the new version of binutils on portage
Comment 3 Bob Thomas 2006-09-02 07:11:03 UTC
gcc 4.1.1 is now stable in portage, and the current stable version of xmingw-binutils will not compile with it. This needs to be updated.

Stefan: ping? Toolchain: does this fall under your umbrella at all?

xming has been integrated into toolchain and the xmingw packages are being killed `emerge crossdev && crossdev mingw32`
