== Compilers ==
 
<em>Compiler Requirements.</em> KDE is designed to be portable and hence to compile with a large variety of GNU/Linux, UNIX, Windows and MacOS compilers.
 
However, KDE is advancing very rapidly and the ability of native compilers on various systems to compile KDE depends on users of those systems [http://bugs.kde.org reporting] compile problems to the responsible developers.
 
 
 
In addition, the C++ implementation in [http://gcc.gnu.org gcc/egcs], the most popular KDE compiler, has been advancing rapidly, and has also recently undergone a major redesign. As a result, KDE will not compile properly with older versions of gcc or most newer releases.
 
 
 
In particular, gcc versions earlier than gcc-2.95, such as egcs-1.1.2 or gcc-2.7.2, may not properly compile some components of KDE 3.5. While there have been reports of successful KDE compilations with the so-called gcc-2.96 and gcc-3.4 (cvs), the KDE project at this time recommends the use of gcc-3.3.1 or a version of gcc which shipped with a stable Linux distribution and which was used successfully to compile a stable KDE for that distribution.
