Re: Current (from 11-aug-2011) fails booting - gcc 4.5 related

Hi All,

I narrowed the problem down to using (which in turn uses gcc
4.5) causes the kernel to fail.

When I manually compile the kernel it defaults to use the system gcc 4.1.
Using the old 4.1 compiler make the kernel work (asside from some 
compile glitches that I manually tweeked)

Anyone has any ideas as to why or what went wrong when using 4.5 ?

regards thilo
