kernel compile trouble after upgrade
a) After upgrading from woody to testing, I could not compile
any kernels at all. All sorts of error messages appeared.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jun 1 14:50 gcc -> gcc-3.3
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 74088 Mar 18 00:16 gcc-2.95
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 74056 Apr 8 2002 gcc-3.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 80652 May 18 13:00 gcc-3.3
b) After changing the symlink to:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jun 1 14:50 gcc -> gcc-2.95
I could re-compile my old kernel, 2.2.18pre21.
c) After changing it to
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jun 1 14:50 gcc -> gcc-3.0
I could compile 2.4.20.
-- is this normal (so many different gcc's)?
-- isn't this a PITA?
-- what documentation should an ordinary user have read, in order
to know about this?
-- what should I leave the symlink at?
