Description Rene Androsch 2004-05-22 07:34:10 UTC
I emerge the new gcc 3.4.0 and then compiled the recent released kdelibs-3.2.2-r1.

Two problems arose:
a) "something" crashed everytime when I started KDE. (cant remeber what it was)
b) One key on my keyboard stopped working -> the "<>|" key.

It started my computer 3 times and it was always to same! In the console the "<>|" key worked!

I switched back to gcc-3.3.3-r3 and recompiled kdelibs-3.2.2-r1 and everything works normal again :)

I just wanted to inform you about this strange behaviour. BTW I'm using a german keybard layout.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

you should recompile ALL of your kde packages (including arts) with gcc 3.4, and it should make the problem go away.
Comment 2 Rene Androsch 2004-05-23 09:27:18 UTC
Possibly, but that would have taken to long.

I don't know (or haven't read) how stable gcc 3.4.0 is and if we (linux users) should go for it or wait a few more weeks! Rumors make me believe that gcc 3.4 will bring much new performance, but at what cost?

Anyway, I just wanted to post this information to make sure, others are able to find it!
Comment 3 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-24 05:24:40 UTC
It's your call, but 3.4 isn't binary compatible with 3.3, so it requires recompilation of all dependant packages.  That's just the reality of the compiler.
Comment 4 Rene Androsch 2004-05-24 05:53:13 UTC
I completely understand this.
I just didn't had time to recompile kde with gcc 3.4.0 (but I'm going to do it next weekend).

I just wanted to post the strange behaviour, of my software/lib/version mixture for other users, so that they can find it here. Nothing bad happend, just 1 app was crashing, and 1 key was not working :)

I will recompile all kde packages (and add-ons like kaffeine) on the weekend.
