Debian kernel source and compiler
I'm running Sid -- up-to-date except for a small number of held and broken
packages -- and have two questions about kernel source and compiling.
1) I have previously gotten, built, and used Debian's kernel source
packages, such as kernel-source-2.6.10 and kernel-source-2.6.11.
In the last few days, aptitude shows a new source package,
linux-source-2.6.12. It is the only (non-virtual) package whose
name begins with 'linux-source'.
Do the Debian kernel source packages use a new naming convention or
is this new package a vanilla kernel (or something else)?
2) GCC 4.0 is now the default compiler series. When I run 'make menuconfig'
or 'make-kpkg kernel_image', I get a large number of warnings -- these
warnings are not generated by GCC 3.3, so I have modified the top-level
kernel Makefile to use gcc-3.3 and g++-3.3.
Should I use GCC 4.0 for compiling the kernel (and ignore the warnings)
or continue to use GCC 3.3?
