Closed: Fixed 5 months ago by mohanboddu. Opened 10 months ago by nickc.

  • Describe the issue
    A new release of the GNU Binutils is about to happen (version 2.33). This change request
    is to alert people to the change and allow a chance for any concerns to be raised. (None are expected though).

  • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)

2019/10/07

  • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)

2020/01/30

  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?

The binutils in rawhide will be an older version, with fewer bug fixes and features.


@nickc Please update the ticket with the change request url when its filed.

Thanks.

Actually no, a mass rebuild is needed. It does not have to be specifically for this update, but it must happen before the f32 branch is cut. The binutils package provides the assembler and linker used when building most other packages, and if there is a bug in either of these tools then there could be a serious problem.
