|Hello to Everyone in Gentooland,
Yes, you've seen the osnews reports and the slashdot site mentions, and
probably know someone who knows someone who's running Gentoo Linux
1.4_rc1. The most common question of the day is: how do I upgrade Gentoo
1.2 to 1.4?
The clearer question is actually, how to upgrade from a non-gcc-3.2 system
(note, still a gcc system ), to a gcc-3.2 system. Well, the problem is
the ABI compatibility that gcc-3.2 has with all the lesser versions.
To this end, we now have some clear documentation (thanks to the excellent
work of ZheN and our new documentation team) found here:
Please note that these guide you through the upgrade process, which is
made very very simple and convenient (thanks to carpaski's excellent work)
upgrade scripts. The documentation will explain all.

Here's another unfortunate pack of mutants who ought to be penciled in for a sudden visit from the angel of death.
