kernel compilation errors with the latest gcc 3.3

There are some bugs in the kernel that cause gcc3.3 to stop compiling.

The solution is to make the changes given in the url below

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-k … 728468&w=2


eg

--- linux-2.4.20-orig/drivers/ide/ide-cd.h2002-12-10 17:46:28 +0900

 byte     curlba[3];
 byte     nslots;

 };

means you have to replace
__u8 short slot_tablelen;
with
u8     slot_tablelen;
in the drivers/ide/ide-cd.h file on line 437
so always remove the lines with a "-" in front of them and replace them with the ones with a +

a second one:

Re: kernel compilation errors with the latest gcc 3.3

Doing a little bit of research, this seems to be a general problem with gcc 3.3 and kernels.  Not sure what the gcc people are thinking of doing... also not sure what Arch should do about it.  This issue will need more research.

Re: kernel compilation errors with the latest gcc 3.3

actually by the looks of it so far coders will have to be even more vigilent because the new gcc seems far less forgiving.
