I'd like to upgrade to the proper kernel compiler, but things are
still confusing. About 10 days ago . . .

Does this mean that the RedHat package is not the same as

What exactly is gcc-2.95.4? An unreleased CVS version? I'm just
a little surprised that there is not a single stable version of
gcc on ftp.gnu.org that can compile the Linux kernel. :-( I had
been using 2.95.3, but eventually I discovered the grow_fs bug which
you guys apparently tracked down to that register spill/reload bug
in gcc-2.96.*. So... I gues that means gcc-2.95.3 has it as well?
o Does anyone know if gcc-2.95.4 is really fixed?
o Where does one get gcc-2.95.4?
o If egcs-1.1.2.tar.gz is not the same as gcc-2.91.66, then could
someone point me to a source tar-ball?
Believe me, I want to use the "right" version, but it is not easy!
Thanks for your help,
