    Heather - we just wrapped up the Science Tools beta test at the GSSC, and the uniform complaint we heard from every site is that we don't support gcc 4. Nearly every site we worked with is using gcc 4.x now. I've discussed this with Jim Chiang, and for the moment, the only solution is to downgrade to gcc 3.x. I'd like to discuss the amount of effort that would be required to upgrade everything (or at least the GSSC subset of the Science Tools) to gcc 4.x. I know that will cause some trouble on the part of developers, so I don't want to dive into this without extensive discussion.



    1. Hi Eric,
      Can you provide a list of what is in the GSSC subset of the ScienceTools?  This will give us an idea of what external libraries are involved at least.  From there, we're going to have to get a sense for how much work is involved to get this going with gcc 4.0.  It's a matter of manpower and the added constraints of LE&O - should be a fun discussion!  But clearly, this is something we have to do anyway, just a matter of when.  I would imagine this will happen for ST sooner than it does for GR.
      ROOT v5.20/00 was released today, and I noticed that there are no binary distributions on Linux using gcc 4.0 - I've sent a note inquiring about that..  but I also see, that VC++ 9.0 binaries are distributed.
      Take  care,
