hey, you should really read the documentation, or the history of this
mailing list, because the gcc 3.0.x is a bit buggy, but the 2.95.x series
is not!

for example, if i was compiled succesfully mplayer with gcc-3.0.3, the
mplayer segfaulted every time i wanted to play a wmv8 file!!
but after i recompiled with 2.95.x this problem disappeared!

therefor the upgrade is means that, it is more stable than 3.0.x!
ok? :)))
