OmniORB3 has been tested with egcs-1.1.2 + gcc-2.95 on x86 linux.

The compiler must be configured with --enable-threads for the C++ exception handling to be thread safe.

With a few exceptions, egcs compilers on other platforms don't seem to have proper support for thread-safe exception handling. Unless there are information to the contrary, do not assume that you can use egcs or gcc compiler on your platform to compile omniORB.

egcs/gcc-2.95 are known to work on:

  • x86, powerpc linux (BUT not on alpha linux)
  • sparc or x86 Solaris
  • AIX
