GCC website back online

Server bounces back from outage

Users of the GCC for RISC OS will be happy to know that the hard-mofo.dsvr.net web server is back up and running after an unexpected long term outage. The web server in question hosts the GCCSDK and other files related to the freely available C/C++ compiler package.

"The problem was caused by a miscompilation of the Name Service Switch resolver library. It took a while to track down, especially as reverting the software upgrade didn't fix the issue", project maintainer Nick Burrett explained in simple terms on the mailing list for RISC OS GCC users.

Developers using GCC on RISC OS are encouraged to join the mailing list to stay informed of developments and news.

"miscompilation of the Name Service Switch resolver library" ?

That sounds like a made up excuse to confuse the non-technically minded :-)

C'mon. What really happened? Nick drop a glass of Ribena down the back of the server again? Tsk. -- Spriteman.
