Anyway, what is the recommended compiler for XFS 1.2? Up to 1.1, I've
read that SGI developer team recommends kgcc in the Makefile, I don't
see that sort of NOTE in the Makefile in kernel

I build my kernels with gcc-2.96 these days which seem to do fine. The kgcc was mainly needed in the pre 11 releases.

A lot of people use the (updated!) 2.96 which seems to work fairly well.

For the past few months, I have been building systems with the latest
XFS from CVS using GCC 3.2...  I have yet to run into a problem that
was due to the compiler.  The systems are all over the map, from dual
Xeon servers with lots of disk to PIII-M laptops to Athelon workstations
to even a 486 "honey pot" machine.  All are running XFS as their only
filesystem (modulo ISO-9660 and NFS) and some have been very heavily

I just wish we had our big cluster running this stuff yet.  However,
our product plans had to slow down due to resources...
