Hi, Joe Kampus, and all here at Endeavour OS, I hope all are well and the year looks good ahead!
Joe, I need advise from well-equipped Linux users like yourself and those amongst EndeavourOS and the forum corridors…
I dropped Arch, nothing happened negatively relating to why, in all honesty, I rather disliked the “indirectly laid hints” that everyone is either using their software to continue the Arch Linux ecosystems existence, in a manner that, you cant really do much, except, create a PKGBUILD, etc… and/or Edit one to have it “mildly” fit some criteria, without it actually fitting your interests/intention close to 50% of your need… customised, yes, to an extent… custom, within reason.
So, I am using Gentoo, love it! It’s been my sole software cave for this entire time since I last posted here. But now I have a question, more “curiousity” than anything else…
In my logs, for evaluation of compiler flags and the works happening during compiling, I noticed this (not recently, a while back, however, I am unable to find clear meaning surrounding why and to what purpose)
Example - some random log:
gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-V’
(More text, blah)
I am just interested in knowing, why is this done? In the Makefiles? Seems like there is “purpose” more than “mistake” behind it…
Thanks Gents and Ladies
