For those interested in getting gcc 6x working, I have compiled gcc 6.4.0 at OBS. Its available at . Compiler is build with options that should allow, in theory, to mix it with the current compiler on SFOS. Compiler is installed at /opt/gcc6, making it possible to have platform gcc and opt-gcc installed at the same time.

Please note that this compiler is not tested. Its early days...

I have seen issues with linking, such as absence of correct libstdc++ and glibc. For simpler programs, that was resolved either by setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include /opt/gcc6/lib or linking with /usr/bin/g++

Note that such packaging is not "proper", as done by system packages. It installs whole c & c++ as a one package together with all libs under /opt/gcc6

Finally, as with @yurib, I had issues with getting ARM version compiled with LTO. So, ARM version is compiled with LTO disabled. The error message was (from OBS build log)

So, there is surely room for improvement
