since more and more people are playing around with gcc3, this might be worth an own forum, even more since those questions tend to be more specific in configuration-, programming- or other knowledge-skills.

just my 2eur-cent ;)

hi... i meationed nearly the same on #gentoo.de

my idea was to have some kind of matrix or list of ebuilds, which can be compiled by gcc3.1 (this has to be maintained by somebody)

-OR-

create a thread for each ebuild ;)

a list of gcc3-compilable ebuilds would be fine! a thread for each ebuild might be a little overkill :)

maybe this all will not be necessary with gentoo 1.2 and portage2, if they can manage it that all packages compile with gcc3 as well as with gcc2 - which I doubt a little bit, since till now some programs still need a lot of work to be gcc3 ready... and there are more than 1700 packages currently available.
but I of course do believe in the maintainers ;)

PS: when I "joined" gentoo (end of march) there were a little more than 1000 packages available

Well, portage2/gcc 3.x/gentoo 2.0 won't be ready tomorrow but in a few months and I guess they'll completly drop out gcc 2.9x and make sure that everyting compiles with gcc 3.1.1/3.1.2 or whatever version is used then...
But a gcc forum wouldn't be that bad

I compiled my system using gcc 3.1 and only made a few minor changes too a very few packages. The only problem I have is with the mozilla-plugins (binaries), but I hope shockwave and java would be recompiled now mandrake and others are also using gcc 3.1. I encourage the creation of a seperate forum and maybe a list of troublesome packages and their fixes so we can swiftly become the number one distro for athlon and p4 users, no other distro supplies custom build packages and a great pro for linux is that you can compile packages for your own particular system.
