openmandriva's use of clang


Some source code relies on gcc features like asm goto, or write alternative (often worse) code for other compilers. See these slides : Source https://llvm.org/devmtg/2019-04/slid...nux_distro.pdf,

People using openmandriva : do you get any compilation or runtime errors that you think can be attributed to the use of clang instead of gcc ? What is your experience so far ?

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: Currently OpenMandriva. Previously openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, among others over the years.

No.

gcc itself is compiled with clang in OpenMandriva, instead of being compiled with itself. clang is a "frontend" for the LLVM compiler. The only errors I've gotten were of my own making...
