Finally! After 2 whole days lost, I managed to emerge gcc-4.5.1-r1!
Apparently, emerge-ing gcc needs a quite-hefty hardware requirement:
- RAM: 1 GiB (failed at 500 MiB; havent tried 756 MiB)
- Hard Disk: 5 GiB (with 128 MB as /boot and 256 MB as swap; haven’t tried a smaller swap
Whew. Humongous requirement, if you ask me…
Now I’m experimenting whether it will be possible to emerge gcc-4.5.1-r1 without upgrading the already-existing gcc-4.4.5….
Until next dispatch. Keep strong!
Update: Apparently, it’s possible. Just do
emerge -avu =sys-devel/gcc-4.5.1-r1, followed by
gcc-config and then
env-update && . /etc/profile. BUT, I haven’t confirmed that
emerge -avuND @world will succeed, though…
