Which patches should I use for binutils, gcc and newlib?



With some wheel spinning I was able to build everything and I am chugging
happily along. I built the stuff by hand (which is usually my preferred
way), because my host system is an 64bit x86 Ubuntu box ... 

As a Debian/Ubuntu person I used to be a bit biased against RPMs, but I have
since discovered their usefulness (especially SRPMS).

Just for the record...

I assume you mean to look in CVS. If I browse in cvsweb
to [there is no 'rtems-XXX', just 'rtems']

rtems/contrib/crossrpms/rtems4.7/<my_cpu>

then I end up an the 'Attic' -- so much for 'absolutely correct information'

;-)

It would help if the precise information about what toolkit and patch
versions to use were available [or at least 'absolutely correct information'
about where to find it]. Not everybody uses the pre-packaged RPMs.
