            Yes, one of the major contributions coming out of LSB 3.0 is
standardization of C++ ABI as defined by GCC 3.4.x (and 4.0) compiler.
Please refer to www.linuxbase.org <http://www.linuxbase.org/>  specs are
for details.


As the C++ ABI went through a revision between 3.3 and 3.4 GCC, you may
see the problems similar to what you mentioned.


If you are seeing some additional problems that LSB 3.0 will not fix,
let's discuss this here.

Hey everyone.

My interests in Linux lie mostly in desktop arena, where Linux is
currently weakest.  One of the biggest reasons, I think, is the lack of
a standardized C++ ABI.

In the real world, this means I can't run many (even most) Fedora Core 4
binaries in Fedora Core 3.  In fact, you can't run many Fedora Core 3
binaries in SuSE Linux 9.3, the latest and greatest from the two of the
most popular distributions distributions of the world.

Does the upcoming 3.0 release of the LSB plan to do anything about this
issue?  How can I help?

Thanks ahead of time to anyone willing to reply.
