Default Re: NVIDIA Developer Talks Openly About Linux Support

Thanks for the link - interesting read.

So if there seem to be so many problems with different versions of glibc
and libstdc++, then why not compiling&linking statically? That would make the
binary 1 to 2 MBytes larger, but that's not a big issue, IMHO. Concerning
distribution, this also should not be an Issue - there are always some
discussions going on that statically linking against glibc might be an
issue, but this is complete non-sense in my opinion, i.e. you for sure link
in crt*.o statically and also most typically libgcc.a, so why should there
by any difference for libc.a? However, IANAL.

regards

Bernhard
