Re: gcc-3.4 ready?

As for stability, I am using the packages from the amd64/gcc-3.4 archive
myself on three machines (on my main desktop and on two servers) since a
few weeks without any problems. From my own experience I would say
that the stability is almost the same as for i386/unstable.
I second that - stability is quite on par with i386/unstable.
I just upgraded from pure64 to pure64-gcc3.4 and all works as expected.
(Though Xprt still segfaults :-/), as it did on pure64.
My steps were:
1) change asources list to use the new repository
2) apt-get update
3) apt-get dist-upgrade
4) apt-get remove libstdc++5
5) apt-get --get-selections | grep -v deinstall | grep install | xargs
-n 20 apt-get install --reinstall -m
Step 4 caused a lot of packages to be upgraded, and some removed. I
looked over the packages to be removed, and saw that I never used these
Step 5 may be unnessesary, but I wanted to make sure that all packages
were compiled using gcc-3.4. Some packages could not be retrieved (as
they are not yet in the gcc-3.4 tree, but I guess they will soon be.)
Thanks for the great work. I can only imagine how much time you must
have put into it, just looking at the bugs you have filed. Very good work.
