Apologies if this isn’t the proper place to request information. I thought the lagging formulae would be a bug, but it didn’t match any of the templates and I didn’t want to get banned from the project.
The linuxbrew-core and homebrew-core GCC formulae have diverged substantially.
gcc in homebrew-core installs 10.1.0 whereas in linuxbrew-core it installs 5.5.0 (or 9.3.0 on macOS). Likewise,
gcc@9 installs 9.3.0 on homebrew-core and 9.2.0 on linuxbrew-core (a bit of a conflict with the
gcc formula, too).
gcc@10 doesn’t exist in linuxbrew-core at all.
Having such an old version of
gcc appear on the
PATH can create conflicts. I initially thought this was an issue with Homebrew, but it appears to be specific to the Linux variant. It looks like holding back the various gcc formulae is deliberate. Is there anything I can do to help advance it?
