Description Peter S. Mazinger 2004-10-13 02:10:54 UTC
I have installed gcc-3.4.2 (had gcc-3.3.4 already) and switched w/ gcc-config to 3.4.2
the result is that the 3.4.2 path appears 3 times in /etc/ (first, third, fourth)
I do not really understand why the 3.3.4 patch should be there if I switch to 3.4.2, correct behaviour would be to have only one active

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

neglected to provide `emerge info`

what version of gcc-config ?
what files do you have in /etc/env.d/gcc/ ?
Comment 2 Peter S. Mazinger 2004-10-13 10:49:05 UTC
emerge info is not relevant (all stable hardened uclibc x86 + gcc-3.4.2)
running 2.4.27 special hardened kernel
gcc-3.4.2 puts 3 files into /etc/env.d/gcc for each installed specs file,
that's why it has 3 entries in /etc/
I do not really know how to handle this, but I do not believe that more
then one entry is necessary in /etc/, what should be the use of both
gcc's having them in /etc/

i fixed this in gcc-config-1.3.7-r5
