hm, very intersting, but the gcc is the only difference. Hm, or is it the binutils? I have sys-devel/binutils Latest version available: 2.16.1 Latest version installed: 2.16.1

hm, for me, kde 3.5-beta2 and rc1 are even more stable than any other release ever. I had not one crash or misbehaviour so far - which is very promising. But if you want to recompile with ggcc3.4 don't you need to recompile qt and kdelibs too? I am not sure, but prior experiences with 3.2 and 3.3 told me, that kdepackages can be pretty annoying if not compiled with the exact same compiler. Glück Auf Volker -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
