The RPMs are built on an old Pentium Pro running Redhat 5.2 for
for glibc compatibility reasons. It has a pretty fast disk subsystem
and the builds are not THAT bad.
OAR's Solaris machine is an SS5.. It took 43 hours to build JUST the
gcc/newlib tools on it.

RPMs normally associate a -REVISION on the RPM to indicate patch
level. So you end up with something like this:
indicating that this is the fourth round of RPMS for sh-rtems
on gdb 4.18. For gdb 5.0, we would reset to revision 1.

I am sorry to hear that. I have four kids. When they are sick it
really disrupts the normal routine of life.

This seems too small... what is in them? I have a size report for
i386-rtems RPMs here:
File sizes in bytes:
Install Size Summary for i386-rtems (in kilobytes)
GCC (C/C++ Only): 21218.11
Total C/C++ Toolset without GDB: 48439.42
Total C/C++ Toolset with GDB: 53044.58
Total Complete Toolset (All Languages and GDB): 73526.65
Out of curiousity, is this a good way to present the installed

I am curious how it goes. I think I worked the issues out building on
the 3 OSes I did.
