Hello All,

I have gentoo install on an hp c240 and have found some serious problems with many X11 applications. It seems (from reading google) that xfree > 4.2 must be compiled with gcc > 3.3, or else you will end up with errors like the following:
Code:

sl0934 root # nedit
Error: Unresolved inheritance operation
sl0934 root # xpdf
Error: Unresolved inheritance operation

My question is this. Is there any timeline for a release of gcc3.3 or is it just too much of a change to expect something soon?

Also, I believe another fix would be to downgrade xfree to version 4.1. However, hppa is not listed as a KEYWORD in the ebiuld.

The link below summarizes the situation, though not completely.

Thanks for any comments.

whoops, didn't read your posting properly, didn't realize you were on non-x86-hardware, sorry

but is there a reason why it should not work anyway, since gcc would be built from ground?

cheers,

Thanks for the reply.

I am hesitent to compile gcc3.3.x becuase hppa isn't list as a keyword of any type (ie. ~hppa or hppa).

Thanks
Kev
