Does anyone know of any approximate deadline for GCC4 to become official (as in not masked with anything more than ~x86)? Or is it in a "when it's done" state? What is holding it back? I've seen other distros that have it as the only compiler (Fedora Core 4 comes to mind).

From what I have been told, and someone correct me if i'm wrong, a package is marked stable when it has been in portage for 30 days without any bug reports. Looking at the bugs for 4.x I don't see it being unmasked anytime soon. Is there any reason in particular why you want 4.x? If you are brave you can try to unmask it.

Are you talking about 3.4.4? Because I see that gcc 4 is not in any arch testing branch for Gentoo.

By "stable" I meant x86 or ~x86 (which is stable enough for me). Anyway, I was simply wondering, and no, there is no particular reason why I want 4.x. If I did, unmasking is not a problem. BTW can one build an entire Gentoo system using 4.x?

Probably, if you're willing to patch every little app which may well fail to compile along the way.

I mean it's not ~masked for any arch.

The sig is for me? :D

Devoid a few packages, I made my system using gcc4. I suggest adding "sys-devel/gcc multislot" to /etc/portage/package.use as it will allow you to mix and match gcc versions to compile whatever you need. That's what they do in Mac OSX switching between 4.0.0 and 3.3.5.

Gotta create a wrapper to switch compilers on the fly like they sort of have for Gentoo based on information in a database held with arch and USE flag values. That would be so awesome. Then again I'm an EE student and lack time for such projects >_>..

See the official gcc4 thread for the answer to this question. Moved to Duplicate Threads.
