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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
