I just woul like to know if contrib packages (OMV LX 3.02) are going to be rebuild with new gcc.
By now, there are about 307 package updates I can’t apply because some essential packages for my work are going to be removed, not replaced! Mostly from Contrib repository.
Contrib packages are supposed to be community maintained. So someone in the community is supposed to step up and do this.
Another example of OpenMandriva being a community distribution.
Most Community can do is to maintain SPECs on github at the end developers are needed to publish packages.
There seems to be a flaw in the community distribution model.…
To me this seems to be a “botle neck”.
I’m using scilab 5.5 (the update 6.0 is not available) for working purposes. If I update gcc, scilab 5.5 will be removed, then I can rebuild scilab 5.5 but no guarantee of immediate success. That is to say, I cannot try it since I run the risk to impact part of my work severely for an unknown period of time…
Alternatives? Using another computer, using a virtual machine?
I’m wondering …
