I just spent several hours installing pure64 gcc-3.4 onto a dual Opteron
workstation (Tyan S2882, 6GB of RAM :). This is for use by a
not-very-hackerly user, but he'll be able to ask me for help if anything
breaks. I left a partition for a sarge i386 dual boot, which I haven't set
up yet. A few gcc-3.4 bumps along the way:
I used the daily-built sid-amd64-monolithic.iso from Alioth. Besides not
doing a very good job of letting me partition and set up RAID1 + LVM, it
still doesn't tell debootstrap all the packages it needs. What finally
debootstrap --include=libstdc++6,gcc-3.4-base,libgnutls11 sarge /target http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/gcc-3.4/
exim-daemon-light depends on libgnutls11 in the gcc-3.4 archive, but
debootstrap is still pulling in libgnutls10.
Fortunately, I didn't have any trouble with GRUB.
Now it's installed, and I've come across some more interesting things:
ia32-libs and libc6-i386 both contain /lib/ld-linux.so.2. What's the
difference between ia32-libs-dev and libc6-i386-dev, and which one should I
use? Hmm, libc6-i386 Replaces: ia32-libs, but it doesn't Conflicts:. Not
Anyone know what the BIOS setting IOMMU Absolute vs. Best Fit modes are?
And which MTRR setting does Linux like better: Discrete or Continuous
(continuous mean it has an uncachable region for the PCI hole, instead of
just leaving it out of the MTRR altogether).
