Well, we have used gcc 4.4 for the official kernel packages since Linux 2.6.34. So it should work. > Maybe someone here can help me ? You would have to install gcc-4.3 in a 'squeeze' environment, perhaps using schroot or pbuilder or a virtual machine. But you can also save some time by bisecting through the old packages at <http://snapshot.debian.org/package/linux/> and <http://snapshot.debian.org/package/linux-2.6/>. > Thanks in advance. > > PS: I hope I subscribed to the good mailing list, if not, please point > me to the good one. debian-kernel is the specific list for our Linux kernel packages.
