In bug 512712 I upgraded mozilla-central and the project branches to use GCC 4.3 on Linux i386. We should probably do the same for code-coverage builds, although I don't know much about the setup there and whether there is a special compiler being used.
I think there would be no issues with this upgrade. I do not remember a specific dependency on GCC version as long as the GCC and GCOV are from the same version.
Is this a config change request, or a compiler upgrade on the build machine request? Aiui, code coverage is run on the same slaves as other builds, so they should all have gcc 4.3.
Config change, as in bug 512712. I just wasn't sure whether the new compiler worked for code coverage.
The latest run [ Dated 2009-09-06 ] still uses gcc 4.1.1 Can you please make changes and start a special run so that I can verify if the results look good. As I have mentioned earlier, there should be no problem in the instrumented build mode with gcc upgrade [ I hope ] Thanks Murali

Is it done ? Latest results seem not to reflect this.

Next run will be using gcc 4.3. Re-open, or file a new bug if there are problems.
