Subject:Interesting Email on Redhat 7.0
View as plain text  
I've been trying to install Redhat 7.0 for use with Mysql and Apache and keep having
little glitches
in starting services and
trying to run linuxconf - It just seems really unstable - Does the gcc-2.96 compiler
matter when
installing the OS, Mysql and Apache??

From the Linux kernel mailing list:

                   Subject: Re: Signal 11
                   Date: 14 Dec 2000 11:11:28 -0800
                   From: torvalds@stripped (Linus Torvalds)
                   To: linux-kernel@stripped

                   Quite frankly, anybody who uses RedHat 7.0 and their broken compiler
                    for _anything_ is going to have trouble.

                   I don't know why RH decided to do their idiotic gcc-2.96 release (it
                   certainly wasn't approved by any technical gcc people - the gcc
                    people were upset about it too), and I find it even more surprising
                    that they apparently KNEW that the compiler they were using was
                    completely broken. They included another (non-broken) compiler, and
                    called it "kgcc".
