[coyotos-dev] IMPORTANT: Tool downgrade!

We have had to back down to an older GCC version -- while GCC 4.4.x works,
it requires support from libc that is not yet present in newlib.
Unfortunately, the YUM/RPM infrastructure isn't designed to deal with
downgrade issues, so the procedure here is a little messy. The following
steps must be done as root:
1. Remove all of your existing capros/coyotos packages. Pay attention
to forward vs. backward quotes!
# rpm -e `rpm -q -a | egrep '(coyotos|capros)'`
2. Tell yum to throw away its package cache so that it doesn't try to
the packages that we removed. This will force it to go back to the
repository to re-fetch a clean copy of the package metadata:
# yum clean all
3. Re-install the cross environment tool base:
# yum install capros-i386-xenv capros-arm-xenv
# yum install coyotos-i386-xenv coyotos-m68-xenv
I have rebuilt a relatively recent CapROS tree for both arm and i386. The
build completed successfully.
Very sorry for the disruption that this caused!
