I've a development server with a standard 7.1 install on it.
I want to upgrade the kernel. I'm thinking of just taking the redhat 7.3
2.4.18 kernel, and rebuilding it on the box. The SRPM requires a modutils
upgrade (never any harm) and a gcc upgrade - from 2.96 (20000731) to
"gcc >= 2.96-98".
If this was my workstation, I'd have no problems with it. But this is a
development box, which code will be compiled on to go on live machines,
with the standard RedHat 7.1 install on them.
Would upgrading GCC break stuff on those ? Would it be safer just to
compile the kernel with the 7.1 GCC, and comment out the requirement for
GCC out of the spec file ?
Should I just go for the standard 2.4.18 kernel instead ?
