interesting (fortunately i could already read in one rh 7.0 bug report
that redhat itself feels at least partly responsible and wants to support
their gcc-2.96) but to me it seems that even among gcc maintainers there
are different views regarding this point (but it may well be that the
other view consists of cygnus employess and that they are forced to have
this "other" oppinion).

i missed that rpm. i'll give that module a try for myself and report if i
have more success than you.

i already did a manual update before switching one of my boxes to rh 7.0
(of course using a seperate partition :->) but i must say redhat 7.0 is a
much nicer distribution in my eyes (for example ppp configuration was as
smooth as it could possibly be and contrary to rh 6.2 all accompanying ppp
modules are correctly configured).
