SUSE Linux Porting Advisories

SLE 10 to SLE 11: GCC

ISVs should read through the GNU GCC documentation to be aware of any differences in the new compiler.

Definition of HZ in /usr/include/asm/param.h

The system header file /usr/include/asm/param.h defines HZ=1024, but /proc/config.gz shows that the kernel has been compiled with HZ=250. The definition of HZ in the file /usr/include/asm/param.h is static, /proc/config.gz is a compile time option when the kernel is built. This makes it impossible to change the system headers to a value which reflects what the kernel was built with. Applications still using HZ need to be fixed to use sysconf [SYSCONF(3)], as changing the definition in the system header file will not change what the kernel was built with.
